Shabby Chic Altered Book

































I thought there would be no problem doing Shabby Chic but when it got right down to it I kept trying to put deep rich colors into the book .... here is the results for me this is very pastel I am not so sure others will think so ....... click to enlarge photo's

This book is incredible. I can't believe you have made all those pages in practically no time at all.

As I'm sure most will, I love the page with the Eiffel Tower, but I also love the background treatment on the page with all the trees.

The art dolls aren't too shabby, either. Yes, I just had to say that (Grin).

I think you do shabby chic pretty well.

These pages are enchanting, Linda.
The richness and depth of these pages are fantastic. I especially love the third page with the window.

Linda your pages are wonderful.

You do manage to find some fun groups to RR with as they always have such fun themes.

You did a beautiful job on this and I particularly like the little bird in the 3rd photo - I'm sure I need several of those *g*.
I have the same issue with adding color , you know. My house is all in soft tones , and it's a rare occasion I manage to make something that works with it lol.
