Supplies: Patterned paper: Collage Press, Cardstock: Bazzill, Swirl felt: Queen & Co, Chipboard: Fancy Pants, Stamps: Autumn leaves, Others: Ribbon, transparency (photo), pearl strand, ric rac, thread, lace, crackle paint, ink, brads, cuttlebug embossing folder, blind material (textured background).

This is the layout I created for the challenge over at Let's get Shabby. I used a ton of scraps on this...yay! :) The textured background (vertical lines) was repurposed from old blind material and mounted on white cardstock. The cluster of ribbon flowers were from an old tissue holder which has seen better days :(. All the ribbon, lace and ric racs were small remnant pieces from previous projects. Some stitching was done on the patterned paper and to secure the pearls to the layout. A small piece of cardstock was embossed with swirls to match the felt swirls used in the layout. The brown inks used were distressed inks in vintage photo, brushed corduroy and tea dye. I stamped some round stamps on vellum paper with brilliance ink, cut them out then attached them to the patterned paper like "round" flowers. Not my usual style so the whole process took a long time. What do you think? Can I pull off th shabby chic look? Pin It
