Hey there my fellow crafters,

You may have noticed that over the months i periodically feature my newest papers, just to show you how they look, as websites very rarely give you a close up and the way i do it doesn't breach copyright.  So, my latest love is from Prima (who would have guessed?)  as all my paper reviews are Prima, in the main, lol........Anyway, i digress, the paper is MEADOWLARK in A4 format.....ooh i am inlove.......again!!! crafters are soooo fickle, aren't we?
I am a feminine, frilly frou frou kind of woman, yet love love vintage, so i love the grungey, grubby look, but i have loved, for as long as i can remember, the 'SHABBY CHIC VINTAGE' look.....all the country cottage florals........ a 500 year old cottage or barn is my ideal home and when i win the lottery, my words to that home will be "Come to Mamma"!!,  these papers are right up my street, or countrylane, whatever the case may be!!!..... they just need grunging up a little....... a bit of distress ink here and there and the odd, ripped, distressed edge every now and again !! and you have yourself a grungey, vintage floral look which is my all time favourite look, im thinking of grunging my whole house with loads of distress inks and cut and dry foam................oh wait, it already is 'Shabby'  im just missing the 'Chic'......... here are the papers, in (my mind)   'ICE CREAM SHABBY CHIC' colours, from delicate blues, and (parma violet) lavenders, through to babygirl pinks and luscious lemons........hope you like!!!

Hugs & Blessings dear friends, and have a great Thursday!!! Vick xxx
