Compendium Entry Week 4

Hello, all! I am just popping in to share my entry for the Compendium of Curiosities challenge for week 4 before leaving on vacation. I will be taking my laptop with me but don't know how good the connectivity will be so I'll try and check in whenever I can.

This is how Linda from Studio L3 put it:

Okay, ready for Challenge 4, and another opportunity to win a great prize and strut your artistic stuff? Me, too!

Please open your Compendium of Curiosities to page 49, where you'll find T!m's "Shabby Chic" technique!

This one has a special place in my heart, as it's the first tutorial I tried when I got the Compendium. It's so easy, but the resulting art has such depth and texture. And, it's kind of like chocolate— once you start, it's hard to stop at just one!

This is my entry for this week:

Thinking of You - Shabby Chic card. I really did like using this technique. It was messy but fun! This isn't what I had planned to complete but with the packing and the cleaning before the vacation, this is all I had time for!


  1. Oh, how I love that red and black together! Celina, you've done it again: Another absolute stunner! The little fabric roses are the perfect finishing touch, too, and your Shabby Chic project is positively elegant.

    I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing, PERFECT vacation, and I'll look forward to hearing from you when you get home!
