Time Worn

Welcome back!  The challenge this challenge at Frilly and Funkie  is hosted by the awesome Autumn! The challenge this time is Timeworn and Autumn describes it as follows:

" As the last leaves fall from autumn trees, we are reminded of the beauty of yesterday. The leaves crinkled underfoot, the clock ticking onward, a fleeting memory... For this challenge, we would love to see your timeworn vintage or shabby chic creations celebrating the beauty of the aged, dated or weathered."

I was thrilled with this and have been thinking about leather.  Soft worn textured leather.  I decided to have a play with my inks and cardstock to see if I could replicate the texture of aged worn leather.  I will be sharing the results of my technique Saturday on the Frilly and Funkie blog.  So make sure to stop by to check it out.

I can't share much more info on this because it will all be shared on Saturday. But I will tell you it was a lot of fun and I have a few other tricks to share.

The team will choose their top four picks with the winner being invited to join us in a Guest DT spot here at Frilly and Funkie and the next three will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and follows the rules will be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

Come join in the fun and share your timeworn beautiful art with us!
