'Layer it Up' Challenge!

Hello and welcome to my crafty friends! It's Nancy today, sharing our next challenge!

Our theme for the next two weeks is 'Layer it Up'. Let's add dimension this time around. Simply create any type of vintage or shabby chic project featuring multiple layers.

At the end of the challenge the team will choose their top four picks. Our first place winner will be invited to join us in a Guest DT spot here at Frilly and Funkie. Three additional talented participants will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and adheres to the challenge guidelines will be entered into a drawing to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique!

The guidelines for entering are simple; create a new vintage or shabby chic project following the challenge theme, link it below to your post (not just your blog) and include a link back to this challenge in your post. You can combine our challenge with up to 10 challenges (including this one) to be in with a chance of winning. Make sure you follow the guidelines, as unfortunately we have had to eliminate entrants from the prize draws in the past when they have entered too many other challenges. If you are entering through a public forum please use keyword F&F. Also, please be sure to turn off your Word Verification so our design team can leave comments on your blogs.

  5. I have yet to start a blog but have been giving it some thought. Is there a way for me to enter the challenge without having a blog? Thanks

  6. Hi ladies, I have recycled a pot after creating a layered with paint and ink background to decorate it with and not sure if that is allowed or not? There are multiple layers but it may not be shabby or distressed enough. If it isn't allowed then please delete and I will be back in a few days with a couple more entries that are within this category. As always thanks for the fun challenge and gorgeous inspirations Karen x
