Making some shabby chic Lily Bee!

>> Monday, June 21, 2010

I love that Lily Bee products already have a rather "modern vintage" vibe (hush, I know that's an oxymoron, but go with me, k?), and it really goes great with my penchant for shabby chic style.

When scrapping these pics from the beach, I wanted to make a big background using the awesome Lily Bee rub ons. I cut bits and snips from all of the different rub ons, and put them randomly on a big square of white cardstock, that was inked/distressed, and then matted with some Hello Sunshine paper.

Then, to give the text a more muted feel, I lightly brushed white paint right on top of the rub ons. I left the words right under the picture on the left untouched, because I wanted there to be a little more focus on those words.

I also lightly rubbed some brown distress Stickles along the edges of the white cardstock and the torn pieces of patterned paper (these particular ones are from the Lovely collection).
I also sanded down the adorable chipboard buttons (I love, love, love them!) and scattered them throughout the layout.
