The Shabby Chic Family

It's not exactly easy to get elegant photos when you are on holiday all bundled up with layers of coats on!!
So for this layout I have kept the photo small and focused on the colours and textures.

Iwent to town with my rub-ons and because they were so intricate I carefully cut them up and used them everywhere! The Bazzil Cardstock is Grey which I thought would be difficult to work with but it goes really well with muted tones.....just ask those French Shaby Chic appartment owners!!
Bubbly Funk always send the most amazing naked chipboard shapes in their kits....thats what Caroline specialises in, as well as loads of other products.....and awesome kits I might add! he he

A little gesso, painting, sanding, inking and rubbing and my naked chipboard is now fully dressed and ready to party!!

If you'd like to see how I made the whole layout and read your daily dose of a free crafting magazine, then pop on over to Bubbly Scrumptious HERE where everyday a designer posts a new technique or project.

Love and getting naked
