Would you like to win this gorgeous 2 foot long vintage crochet doily ? Imagine the possibilities. Challenge #43 is up at Lets Get Shabby and this is the prize ! Go to the Lets Get Shabby blog HERE to get all the details on how to play along and to get some inspiration from all the DT girls; three of them are new, and are posting for the first time, and, I'm sure would love it if you left some 'welcome' comments for them.
All you have to do is create a 'shabby project' based on this beautiful image below. Interpret it any way you like.
I've used some Prima Resin and letters, some Kaisercraft rubons and the "grand lady" herself is fussy cut from a collage sheet called Fantasy Lady 1062 available from Meg's Garden.
My base background is chipboard, sprayed with gesso. A technique borrowed from the super talented Louise Nelson. Added some masked, texture paste flowers coloured with Distress Stain in my very favourite shade, Peacock Feathers.
Shabby always lends itself to doilies, punched borders, muslin and sheet music paper.
