AN ELEGANT FRENCH FLAIR MATCHBOX FOR MY PARTNER BEC'S...
This is the box I created for my partner Bec's in Vintage Dragonfly's Partner's Choice Matchbox swap. I brought back this wonderful gleaming fabric from Maui...it is covered with rosettes and is slightly iridescent in the light. I love the taupe color because it is so neutral and goes with everything!
These are the goodies I included...I wanted them to have the feel of being collected up on a walk throught the flea markets of Paris...
This is the inside of the drawer...a vintage Paris image...in the front you can see the little glass bead feet I added to the bottom of the box...yes the rosettes are all over the bottom also...I do hope Bec's likes her box as much as I do. Below is a close up of the 'floating' butterfly pin that can be detached to wear on an outfit...
Over the many years that I have been creating paper art, my clubs have increased. I began with CCCC crazy for cats card club in the summer of 2002. SBMAC sketchbook mail art club followed in the summer of 2004. I have been the moderator of that club for over five years now. I also belong to TWISTED SISTERS ATC CLUB. Once I began blogging for my little cat Miss Peach, a whole new world opened up as the world suddenly came into my living room. My group AMCA brings ATC's from around the world into my collection. ART brushes away the dust of everyday life for me...to quote a good rubber stamp!In my spare time, I live in a tiny cozy cottage in the desert of Washington with my beloved Dennis and a garden full of cats. I am from Bavaria and even though I am happy here, I miss it very much.
