CHALLENGE #26 and Introducing our New DT Member!

Challenge #26

is all about

(Your creation must contain both 'Toile AND Ticking')
What's this you might ask???

Here's a wonderful site we found that will help answer your questions.
or look to the Shabby Design Team projects.

You might find this in fabric, or paper...

Another question you might raise is ...

'I dont have any?'

You can also find Toile and Ticking and print off the computer like a couple of our DT have done.

Toile and Ticking is beautifully historically French and fabulously Shabby!

Toile is a distinct elegant pattern used in various shades and Ticking is a stripe – usually a double stripe or uneven spaced stripe…

This is what the Shabby Girls created...

after winning two challenges one after the other
and with amazing beauty and detail we just knew Magda
would make a wonderful Shabby Girl!

A little about Magda:

My name is Magda and I am from Poland. I love crafting, reading, jazz music and spending time with my little daughter, Lena. I have been scrapping a few months (since December 2010) and I enjoy every minute of my hobby. Through scrapbooking I am trying to be creative. I would say I tend to scrap romantinc and shabby with a little touch of vintage. My style of scrapbooking is very eclectic, somethimes shabby chic and romantic, sometimes vintage, but I always include lots of layers and details.
I look forward to challenging myself as well as inspiring you.
I am so proud and honoured to be a part of Let's Get Shabby Design Team. Thank you!

Congrats on your talented new shabby girl Magda, been to her blog and she is super!
I am working on this challenge, it has been some time since I entered one of your challenges and I had to put some effort in finding out what toile is and what ticking is but I got there and now working on it.
Lovely challenge and super inspiring examples from the DT.
