We have 2 beautiful projects for early Spring! Let’s start with Teri Calia’s The Memory Keeper's Room!
I love what Teri has made, all starting with the new Petite Garden Shelves over on the right side (with the addition of Slender Cabriole Table Legs, and with all the shelves filled with treasures). The whole room grew around that shelf unit and the matching Park Bench.
This little shabby chic roombox is a tribute to all of you out there who collect vintage ephemera and photographs. I started collecting when I was a child because I spent a lot of time with my Great Grandmother, who was a collector. I still get a thrill when I find a particularly interesting old postcard or well worn love letter. The memories attached to these treasures may not be my own, but they still speak to me and inspire me to imagine a long past world so different from my own.
As you can see, the focus of this room is the tray filled with old letters, postcards and photographs. There is even a magnifying glass for closer inspection. Below the tray is an open faux book box, with more photos and ephemera, waiting patiently for perusal. A couple more faux book boxes on the shelf await their turn as well.
See below for close-ups of the tray of photos and postcards, and the new tiny size faux book box.
On to more artwork! Nichola Battilana’s luscious trio of Magical Masquerade ATCs!
See the wide photo below… I LOVE what Nichola did with the Midnight Masquerade papers and Art Deco images from the The Secret and Art Deco Party #2 Collage Sheets! AND adding an extra layer of texture, using thick acrylic medium with texture sheets (see the center one in the photo for the texture added with the Quatrefoil Texture Sheet shown at left).
