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.

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.

For my project I used some paper that I bought at Walmart with some random lace and trims that I had in my stash and all the stamped quotes are from Pink By Design. For the red and polka dot paper I used BoBunny paper (my fave). By the way...I made this out of toliet paper rolls that I painted white and brushed with pink.

Mixed Media Blog Hop

Welcome ladies to the Mixed Media Blog Hop hosted by Monica at Scraps to Treasure. She is the first stop and I am the second so you should be coming here straight from Monica.

This hop will not have a long list because it involves a little more work and it is going to broaden everyone's creative by introducing everyone to the world of mixed media along with altered which of course everyone is familiar with.
For those who may not know what it is: Mixed media uses things like -
•Gel Mediums
•Molding Paste

But it is a simple as using glimmer mist on a tag or using game pieces and alcohol inks.Everyones take on it is different and I hope you enjoy all the creations and GOOD LUCK to the winner!!
