I made this simple shabby chic (and may I say , in rather muted colours for me) "home plaque".
used the vasaline (petroleum jelly) technique to stop the top white
coat of paint from adhering to the whole plaque and to add some extra
age worn look, I used an Andy Skinner crackle stamp over the white in a
sympathetic colour toned ink to the paint. the trees and house were
coloured with versamagic chalk inks.
I couldnt decide what to use
as a background for the photo, so I took two... one very "pretty" garden
look, and one shabby and distressed paintwork look. Supplies used from calico Crafts:
