This week over at Our Creative Corner, Sue Butler is our hostess and she wants to see our Shabby Chic creations. Well, that's not even a challenge for me - LOL. It's pretty much what I do. But I did go a little grander than normal The Pion Designs paper I used was the small 6x6 version and the particular piece I wanted to use from the From My Heart II pack really begged to be done in a 6x6. So rather than make a huge card, I set out to make a wall handing, but at the last minute decided it would be better free standing rather than hung. I pulled out my trusty easel die and set it up to be freestanding. I really like making free standing art pieces using the easel die. I use it for tags too so I can stand them up on my desk rather than find a place to hang them.
The Tim Holtz metal Word Band was swiped with a bit of gesso, using my finger to apply it. I frequently get questions on how I affix my lace and metal bits. I really love using the Claudine Hellmuth Multi Medium Matte because it dries clear and matte, not shiny. All my edges were sponged with either Antique Linen or Vintage Photo distress inks.
Be sure to stop by Our Creative Corner. The design team has excelled themselves with Sue's shabby chic team and I, for one, am absolutely drooling over their creations!
