A Shabby Chic Theme

Hello, my name is Susan Butler (aka scrumplescrunch), and welcome to 'Our Creative Corner' I am delighted to be your Hostess for the next two weeks. I would love you to join in, I am excited to see what you make and pay you a visit.

Thank you to all who entered Meihsia's 'Photo Inspiration' last week, now don't forget to stop back and visit on Wednesday to see who will take home the Top Talent Award.  It could be YOU!

So the theme this week is unequivocally 'Shabby Chic'.  This means the shabby part of Vintage!  The challenge requires you to pull elements together, the more old/ worm and distressed the elements/ images the better; muted colours, layers, roses, burlap and pearls.  You do not have to use all of these elements. The effect you are aiming for is a soft warm Palette.

And if you have found your way to us for the first time, keep scrolling as you will be impressed with the cards that are on show for your inspiration from our own Dt's.
