Hi everyone. I feel like I haven't posted in forever. I am back from Kentucky, the wedding was lovely and then it happened. I came home with the Kentucky Plague. It seems like every time I travel to Kentucky, I get sick. And when I get sick, it lasts and lasts. I am finally starting to come out of it and just in time for this post for Corrosive Challenges. This challenge is called Not too Shabby and it is sponsored by Tickled Pink Stamps. We ask that you make your project a bit Shabby Chic.
Shabby Chic is not really my thing. I love super bright colors but I gave it a shot and I think it came out pretty good. My good friend Regan always pics out everything first before even coloring her image. Not me. I usually color first and figure it all out later. But since I wasn't feeling my best, I thought I would give Regan's method a try. It worked for me once in the past too. I think she is definitely on to something because I was able to get this done a lot faster than I normally do. Come to think of it, I even colored it a lot faster. I guess there is something to be said for having a plan. This may change the way I craft. I even used seam binding for the first time. I borrowed that little idea from Kathy. I also stained it a little with some ink.
There is one thing I need to work on. I feel like instead of being Shabby Chic, this looks a little dirty instead of shabby. I will get the hang of it though. Please head over to Corrosive Challenges and see what the rest of the design team has done for your inspiration.
