Heart Song Inspiration Challenge #12

Hi Everyone!!

Welcome to my Heart Song Inspiration Challenge blog post for this week!
This weeks challenge is  "Shabby Chic and/or Use Pearls". Would you believe I have never tried 'shabby chic' before?! It was a bit of a challenge - but I love trying something new so it was fun! I definitely think I'll be trying some more in this style!
I hope you can play along too this week. You don't have to use a Heart Song image (but of course we would love you to!). You could win an image of your choice from the Heart Song store! PLUS, for this week, one of our fabulous DT members has generously offered a RAK for the lucky winner also... 2 Copic Ciao markers in their choice of colors and a black sharpie marker. How sweet is that!?

Here's how my first attempt at 'shabby chic' turned out...

And a side view...

I double layered the fabulous Heart Song Icecream image so it looked extra delicious, and mounted it over distressed Grace Taylor Vintage Collection papers. Beautiful lace and scrunched ribbon, with lots of pearls finished the 'shabby' look!

Thanks for visiting and hope you can play along!

Love & Hugs,
