Wow! We've been doing this for four weeks? Linda chose the Shabby Chic technique for this week's challenge. Click on the link above to get the deets directly from Linda.
This is not a difficult technique, but I do have a tip. Without giving anything away re: directions (which we've all promised), do not be in a rush to do the last step. That's all I'm sayin'. I was (patience is NOT my middle name), and that resulted in a do-over.
Anyway, here is my shabby chic piece:
It photographed a little dark. Here's what I can share:
the bird on the branch is from Tim's Urban Tapestry set
the nest is from Artful Flight
the words are from a stamp in Wendy Vecchi's Homemade Art set
espresso and lettuce
the leaves were cut from scraps of paper from Tim's Lost and Found paper stack, using a Sizzix sizzlet die
the border on the right was cut with Tim's Brackets on-the-edge die
Again, thanks to Linda for organizing this ongoing challenge. I am really enjoying it, and my little technique journal is growing and is already full of such goodness.
Also, thanks to the sponsors Linda has gotten. Every week someone is randomly chosen to receive a super prize. Go to Linda's blog to read all about that.
And last of all, thanks to Gloria, our list mom at ATT who is also giving away gifts each week.
Have you joined the challenge? Why not????? It's probably too hot to go outside anyway (well, it sure is in my world), so turn to page 49 in Tim's book and create something!
