Oh So Shabbylicious!!!

I LOVE the look of Shabby Chic....its so beautiful!
I believe the definition is: 
Something that's rather worn out/tattered yet has a touch of understated class and an air of charm. It is  achieved through an elegant balance of the old and worn, with the new and shiny, with textures to achieve a romantic affect.

So today I am going to share a few projects that are just shabbylicious and beautiful!

First up is a gorgeous layout by Mallika using the Scraps Of Elegance 'Lynne's Garden Terrace' kit

The collection was a perfect match for her mothers day layout - as her mother always taught her to be independent like a buttefly and fly high.
She was totally inspired by the mood board.

and the gorgeous details

Next up is the Queen of Shabby Chic - Renea using the Scraps Of Elegance 'Lynne's garden terrace' kit

She created a matching set using some images that she had used before, scaling them down, distressing and inking the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink In Tattered Rose, and sewing them.

She tore out pieces of tissue paper, crinkled it up and inked it and layered that along with some of the tickets that were in this month's Embellishment add on, and then topped those pieces with my sewn image.


at the bottom she tore the paper into a V, then curled them back and layered ruffled ribbon to "Peek" out, and topped it with a Prima Ingvild Bolme Resin Heart piece. I added stash mulberry paper flowers, and some of the flowers from this month's floral add on.
At the top of the photos, She added another Prima Ingvild Bolme Resin Heart piece and then pulled some Vintage lace through a hole and topped it with a Rhinestone Button.
Her next set of tags is equally beautiful

She wanted a really soft look so she took some of the Bo Bunny paper and coated it with gesso, then took a  Tim Holtz Doily Stencil and went over it with Ranger Texture Paste, and with the stencil still on I misted it with some Lindy's Mist from a past kit. I then inked the distressed edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tea Dye.
Next she punched another layer of paper and stamped it with a Prima brick stamp from a past kit, then added a sewn matte layer and then sewed the images and added them. She made hand dyed seam binding bows, topped them with a rhinestone button, and then pulled some of the small lace from the kit through for a hang tag.
At the bottom of each photo, she added flowers from the kit and this month's floral add on, and some stash foliage, some wide lace, and topped them off with some of her handcrafted butterflies.
Thanks for stopping by!
