{Shabby Cabinet Card Box – Art Archives}


Hello! Happy June to all of you. I am still here, but there are some things going on that are making creative time impossible right now. I hope that will change in the next few weeks, even if I can make something for a few hours a week.

I figured that I would go through my art archives and share a piece from a few years back that was published as well in Somerset. The cigar box I painted a shabby white, and lined with old sheet music. Inside there is an old baby shoe, rhinestone pin, glove, and cabinet card.

 

{Rose Garden Vintage Fabric Journal}

I wanted to share this Rose Garden Fabric Journal that I recently completed. For this project, I decided to mix both faces and rose images throughout. I print my images on June Tailor Fabric Sheets (inserted into my printer.) I used a mixture of vintage pink Swiss dot fabric and muslin as the page backgrounds. I incorporated antique/vintage collars, laces,and fabric remnants throughout the journal as well. Lots of hand sewing adding little rosebud millinary flowers and mother of pearl buttons.

I like the mixture of the pink fabrics and the muslin backgrounds. Something a little different then my usual journals. The sun finally came out this morning after days of rain and grey, so I grabbed my camera and tried to get the best light possible.
