The first challenge for 2013 is up at Lets Get Shabby, with a "very shabby style" sketch for you to follow. Our blog has had a bit of "make-over" and now it's even easier to play along because we have employed "Mr. Linky"! We'd love you to "get your shabby on".....you know, florals, distressed, white washed, stained, stitched, curled, torn, romantic, splotches and dribbles and join in the challenge. If you click HERE you can get all the details and check out the inspiration from the other DT girls.
Oh ! and we're also looking for some new Design Team members so, if you would like to be a part of our very friendly, easy going team and create one "shabbily beautiful" piece of work a month, please apply. All the details HERE.
The sketch inspired me to fold my page into 16 squares, that I then stitched and inked. I've used gesso on the background that has been softly coloured with teal and I've thrown a few tea bags at the page ( thank you Anna ) to get those lovely vintage "stains".
The photo: my daughter looking really bored or maybe just thoughtful.
