Welcome to the Shabby Accents Blog Hop!
If you have arrived here from Suzanne of Scrap With Suzy you are on the right track. If not, please start here.
The shabby chic style has been around for many many years, originating from Great Britain, where time worn items were showcased in most country homes. Today’s essence of shabby chic is to achieve that time worn layered vintage look from yesteryear by painting, distressing, dying or tea staining. Now we bring it to you right from our craft tables.
Please follow along as the following crafters showcase their handmade Shabby Chic Accents. Be sure to visit each blog, as each artist will be having a giveaway. Also, we have a couple of awesome sponsors who have generously donated for a “Grand Prize Giveaway”. Their shops are full of shabby goodness. To qualify, all you have to do is become a follower if not already and leave a comment on each blog stating you are a follower, or have become one.

And now for the fun part. I know you didn't come here just to see what I had made, although I do hope I have inspired you in some small way. I do have a little prize to give away. It's a lovely blue and green elements collection in celebration of spring. It includes tags, buttons, Prima flowers, floss, chipboard, a flocking set and several 5x5" sheets of designer paper.

POST UPDATE: Thanks to Michelle for asking how I got my concentric circles so perfectly spaced. Here's the scoop: I got the tearing started by cutting smaller sized openings with an Exacto knife. I cut 4-5 pages at a time with the Exacto and then ripped around the opening varying the size of the opening as I went along. And you don't have to be perfect. Sometimes I would rip the opening too large, but the next page I would do smaller and it would cover up the larger opening. I just kept making the openings smaller and smaller as I went along.
