Shabby Chic













                 I managed to finish my shabby chic page tonight to share with you.  I'm doing a series with a group and the last page I did was a few posts ago.  This month the theme is flowers.  I had some torn fabric that I spiraled into a flower, then I spritzed them with some glimmer mist. As for the girl, I used pan pastels to shade and color.  The turquoise flowers were also colored in pan pastels while I cut the leaves from a textured chenille fabric. Pigma markers were used for definition.  It's hard to tell, but I used crystals in the flower centers to make it sparkle.  The edge of the page is finished with chalk ink as well as along the lace.  The lace is actually an old lacy curtain that I have cut and pulled the edges for a tattered look.

I also want to mention that I have a blogoversary coming up in less than a month!  I will come up with something soon for an oppertunity drawing.  This will be my 5th!

So beautiful - and it blends beautifully with your blog background! I have never had much luck with Glimmer Mist on paper as it makes the paper curl but have never thought to use it on fabric. How do you keep your pastels from smearing? Just gorgeous!

Thanks gals.
Nancy, you can use a fixative for pastels you can get at an art store or even hair spray works:)
