Hi! Suzz here. I am hosting the current challenge and it is inspired by the month of August. In doing a little online research I learned that the month of August was re-named for Augustus Caesar. He was the first Roman Emperor and was very proud of the influence he had on the architecture of the country. For this challenge I am asking you to be inspired by marble, arches or columns. You will need to create a vintage or shabby chic project using some type of marble effect, arches or columns.

The winner will earn the chance of a Guest Designer spot here at Frilly and Funkie, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. In addition, the Design Team will select three further outstanding entries and those creators will receive a Top Pick badge to display on their blogs!

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 also 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. If you are entering through a public forum (such as Instagram) you'll need to include the words Frilly and Funkie Challenge. Also, please be sure to turn off your Word Verification so our Design Team can leave comments on your blogs. Make sure you follow these rules as unfortunately we have had to eliminate entrants from the prize draws in the past.

The Funkie side of the Design Team shares more gorgeous art to inspire us all!

  2. Love all the funky posts today; very clever and interesting. I would not be able to pick a favorite; the are all so inventive, creative, and charming. I was disappointed Zoe Hillman's photo did not link to her blog as usual.

  3. Awesome challenge!!!! And fantastic inspiration from the DT!!

  4. Suzy, I love this challenge. I didn't get my little marble piece done in time, but I did learn to paint faux marble. Thank you for your ideas and the incredible work from the design team.
