A Little Shabby Chic

What a fabulous treat we have for you this week, with all things Shabby Chic, and so many beautiful creations from the Scrapware girls.

First up from Gilly we have the fabulously shabby "Own Little World"

Gilly put mod podge on the banners and covered it with an old music sheet, left it for 1 min, then pulled ther paper back off leaving some print behind, then inked around the edges and sewed a piece of lace on top to make the banner. Doesn't it look beautiful!!

The Do Hicky was sprayed with Glimmer Mist Chalkboard Hot chocolate, then covered in Cinnamon Stickles to add some bling.

With the alphas, Gilly inked them in light brown, then used clear crackle paint on top, going over again with a dark brown ink once the crackle paint was dry to create an aged look.

Gilly has used CH341 Do Hicky 7, CH392 Mini Banners, AZ08 Antique Lowercase Alphas.

Next up, from Hetty with her beautiful "Princess"...

What a pretty pretty layout, with all those pink flowers arranged perfectly around the raw chipboard.

Hetty has addded just a little texture by embossing the heart.

Hetty has used CH28 Tree Flourish Large, WD190 Princess Word, CH131 Flourish Shelley, and HS05 Primitive Heart.

And now check out this stunning piece from Trizzy.

Trizzy has used LB19 Flourish Frame and CH225 Twinchie Overlay B - both of which were painted with Antique white & Spearmint Kaiser Colour and highlighted with gold gilding wax. The corner of the overlay was given a few layers of white emossing powder, which was then stamped and highlighted as well.

Skeleton leaves were used and highlighted and tucked in under the image. Gold german scrap creates the beautiful border down the left, which was painted with white acrylic then embossed with holographic embossing powder. Some flat back pearls were added to the image to give her a necklace and matching earing - a girl must always where her jewels!

The word "Believe" was painted with black acrylic and highlighted with gold, and finally for the trim, Trizzy has threaded some beads onto head pins and attached them to some gold wire that was threaded through the bottom of the frame. Simply beautiful, Trizzy!

And how about this adorable layout from Nat May, a simple and pretty Layout using CH324 Antique Mini Frames and WD204 Angel (script).

Finally, I have created a boyish layout "Little Boy Blue" in a shabby chic style.

I have used some pale blue embossing powder and distress stickles, along with some pearls on my chandelier. For the large alphas, I have used some white ink and pale blue embossing powder, and for the mini alphas, I have inked them brown, and then embossed using a script stamp and the pale blue embossing powder.
