This one is for Lets Get Shabby ... this month's theme is white and/or cream with a hint of one other colour. I created the rose trellis out of the left over "rails" from the Collections picket fence chipboard. I have painted it with distress paint and then weaved the pieces together. I then twisted the stems of the roses around the trellis to make it look like a rambling vine. As a finishing touch I added some leaves from the D-lish Scrap store. The papers are Pink Paislee and Crate Paper which have been distressed and machine stitched around the edges. The heart shaped paper doiley is also from the D-lish Scraps store. I have also added the tulle which I gathered at points with more leaves and roses and then stitched to the page. I finished it off with some punched out butterflies with kaiser pearls on them.
Not quite as shabby as I had first envisioned but this is where it told me to stop! hehehe
My second effort for the day is for the Artastic chalenge blog which is run by my friend Shazza. I took inspiration from the colour scheme and since it was a painting I figured that I had to use paint!!
