Unruly Paper Arts ~ Shabby Chic Article



Today I have a new article up at Unruly Paper Arts, where the June theme is Shabby Chic.  I’ve made the canvas above and the baby shower elements below using similar materials.


All the details are over at the Unruly Paper Arts blog. These were made with products from Sizzix, Tim Holtz, Ranger, Darkroom Door, Xyron, Cricut, 7 Gypsies, DCWV, and Crop-o-Dile.
