A little bit of Shabby Chic,my style.....

I stumbled across Elaine's mini challenge out there in blogland....how on earth did I miss her blog...I mean, I am on her design team and I have known her through crafting for quite a while now...a lovely,lovely lady....
So Elaine's Mini Challenge is Shabby Chic and entries must be altered art/mixed media...so here is my entry....


I started off with a wooden tray, a few freebies from a lady who owned a craft shop,she was going to bin them,so I begged them off of her.
For my project I used  one with 4 compartments....
First I  gessoed the whole piece,then painted it with Kaisercraft acrylic paint, I mixed a bit of white with pistachio green. When that dried,I dry brushed white paint over the whole piece,although the photo dosen't pick that up very well.



Next I decorated each compartment with some vintage paper from Graphic45...a Tim Hotlz doll and a few other bits...added lace,beads and flowers to the corners.
To finish I used a couple of screw in rings and found some matching lace in my stash to use to hang it up as you can see below.


Hope you like it...I'm going to hide it from my daughter...once she sees it,she will want it,lol....
