Hello Friends!!! Happy Saturday! Well, it's my last week to host the challenges at Crazy 4 Challenges so I decided something Shabby Chic or Vintage would be a perfect challenge. I love, love shabby chic and vintage stuff. There are times when I head to the local boutique/gift shops and antique stores in my town and just look at all all the fun creations. In Temecula, where I live we have a lot of boutiques that sell a lot of shabby chic and vintage items from jewelry, paper products, clothing, bags, and home decor. I just walk around and try to get ideas and inspirations. I wish I could make the home decor stuff myself but what would I do with them? Our house is fully decorated; there's no room to add any more stuff. I guess I could sell them on Etsy or something. I don't know. . .it's something I've thought about but well, I need money to buy materials and such. It can get costly so I'll just stick to paper crafting and jewelry right now and use the materials I already have.
So. . .the challenge this week at Crazy 4 Challenges is to create a card or project with a shabby chic or vintage element on it such silk flowers, lace, distressed paper, vintage or ephemera images, buttons, beads, french script design, metal, whatever. There are a lot of different shabby chic and vintage items you can add to your card or project.
