Shabby Garden

Hello!  Today I am the Featured Artist over at the Anything But Cute Challenge Blog!  Lisa is hosting Challenge #16  and what a beautiful challenge it is!  There is a wonderful Mood Board to inspire you featuring Shabby Garden.

Here is the description provided by Lisa "For this challenge, we are asking you to take a stroll through a romantic shabby garden. Create any mixed media project strongly inspired by the mood board. Think flowers and plants in cracked pots, peeling paint bird feeders, distressed timeworn furniture, crumbling statues, soft pastels and feminine accessories. Don't forget to tell us how the mood board inspired your project and have fun!"

I fell in love with the beautifully distressed wood in the pictures and had to play around with a faux garden fence on a mini book. 

I am not going to share the details as you can pop over and see them here and for all the details on how to play along and the awesome design team's creations go check out the challenge post here.

Thanks for stopping by!
