Shabby Chic Layout By Guest DT Sunila and Aditi

Bonjour Crafters

We’re back with an inspirational post and our third project for Rainbow Craftykari! What a delight :)

Today we’re here to inspire you with a shabby chic layout and with Valentine’s day nearing, we though love would be a fabulous theme to work with!

What is shabby chic? Shabby chic (/ˈʃæb.iˈʃiːk/) is a form of interior design where furniture and furnishings are either chosen for their appearance of age and signs of wear and tear or where new items are distressed to achieve the appearance of an antique. When incorporated in art and craft its as simple as creating something that appears worn off, old, faded and distressed. Pastel colours (pinks, blues, white) are the go to colours in this style.

Here is the Layout we have created for this one

For this layout we chose one 12x12 sheet with a pastel pink and floral elements as our base. We picked various sizes of pattern papers for our layering. If you notice this layout is a three picture layout- one big and two small. We assembled our papers and photos and made rough marks once happy with the arrangement. We then made cut marks on the top right and bottom left of the page, tore it and folded it like draping it. We distressed all our edges with distress inks. In the peep through places, we added another piece of paper underneath. We mounted our base piece onto white cardstock. We distressed the edges of all our paper pieces and photos for the vintage look. We then chose our chipboard pieces, painted them gold and added them onto our layout, some above and some peeking from beneath a picture. We added some texture using modelling paste and a stencil around our arrangement. Once content we adhered everything down in place. We then adhered a few flowers going with our layout.
