Chic to be Shabby

Hi Crafting Peeps.

The challenge was to create something Shabby Chic. I have GOT to take photography classes. I am HORRIBLE at taking pictures and knowing lighting and all that.

There are a few things I'm proud of in this layout. The bird cage was just a plain natural wood die cut. I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks on it, then I got into all my jewelry making supplies to see if I could come up with some thing to dangle from the bottom. I think it turned out kinda cute given it was my first one. You probably think the papers just came the way they look but I'm pretty happy about that too. I used Distress Inks on the Designer Paper, which is from the Nostalgia collection from My Minds Eye. Then the photo mats were a plain solid color that I used Distress inks on.

I LOVE the paper flowers. They're from Engraver (Prima Flowers) and I think they are some of my Favorite. Unfortunately they are no longer available, but click the Prima Flowers link to see what Prima products we do have in stock.

Thanks for stopping by.
