Shabby Shabby Shabby

Good Thursday morning!

I am so looking forward to the weekend.  
Jon had some time off work so we are headed up to Canada's Wonderland - a huge amusement park - this weekend with the boys.  Our boys love rides so its something we do every year!
I'm not as adventurous as the boys but I love to watch them have fun and of course take photos!

Today I want to share a couple of projects that are so shabby chic!

First up is Renea, who has created an elegant and beautiful layout
using the July 'Patricia's Memoirs' kit from Scraps Of Elegance.


She started with a layer of the Debutante Prima paper from the kit, then punched and sewed the next layer.


To get the texture you see in the background, she used the Prima Wildflowers stencil from the kit and painted over it with Prima White Crackle Texture Paste letting it air dry for maximum crackle, then she inked over it softly with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink  In Tea Dye. 


  She added a matte behind the photo by distressing and sewing some of the kit paper. She painted around the image with some  Tim Holtz Distress Rock Candy Crackle, let it air dry then inked it really heavily with the Tea Dye Ink.


She fussy cut a wide pattern from the kit papers, and water distressed it so it looks like material, and layered some pink lace and a rose die cut that was in the kit underneath.


She painted the Blue Fern Chipboard Feather from this month's Elements Add On white, then layered on tulle and heated it up so that it melted into the paint and gave some gorgeous texture.  Then she layered in the feathers from the kit for softness, adding some stash bling to the large one.

And a few more of the gorgeous details.....





I did not get to previously feature another gorgeous shabby chic project from Renea using the June Scraps Of Elegance Stéphanie's Treasure kit!


She created a pocket folder from the kit papers.







Now I want to share a stunning creation from Mallika also using the 
July Scraps Of Elegance Patricia's Memoirs kit.



I love the vintage image she used!

here are a few of the beautiful details.....







Thanks so much for stopping by!
