Artsy project


Inspired by the Art Every Day Project that I came across after visiting Art Junk's blog . I wish I could devote a little time each day to do something creative, but right now things are kind of hectic. But I did work on this box a few nights last week. I took and old gift box that came out of an estate, I think a wallet had been in it. I grabbed the lingerie images that I used on the top of the box and on the inside of the lid from normavalentine's beautiful flickr images The other images were items I found online or scanned myself. To the left is the top of the box with some vintge flowers, gold star fabric and gold velvet ribbon around the sides.
The inside of the lid (below, right) has more gold star fabric, a copy of a vintage lingerie image and more millinery flowers. The inside of the bottom of the box has some vintage purple crepe fabric, green ribbon and a small bunch of flowers.
The underneath of the box (photo on right) has a copy of an old magazine, a copy of a flower seed catalog and a flapper photo add. All done with good old fashion Modge podge!

OK, time for some pumpkin pie after I wash my face and put on the pjs. Then to settle down and watch the Gilmore Girls. Let's see how mad this episode makes me. I cannot believe Lorelei married Christopher. This is definately going to be the last season of this show, they totally ruined it.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Bye for now, Carol
