Typography Inspiration Box

I am so excited to finally be able to show this Typography project for Graphic 45. This project went in a total direction than anticipated, but that is what I love about art.  

Typography Inspiration Box
Typography 8x8 paper
Typography 12x12 Paper
Typography Chipboard
Typography Stickers
Regular Tag Album
Antique Metal Door Pull
Ornate Metal Key Holes
Ornate Metal Keys
May Arts Ribbon
Petaloo Flowers
Copper Gilders Paste
Tissue Tape
Black Gesso
Black Soot Distress Stain

I simply love scouring resale shops, flea markets and estate sales for things to alter.  The starting point for this Typography Inspiration Box came from one such find at a Goodwill thrift store. 

My little  box was fifty cents and it was quickly transformed into vessel for a few inspirational tags.  I creatively used the Ornate Metal Key Holes in groups to emulate feet along with lots of other Graphic 45 metal staples.  And yes, they are colored with copper gilders paste

The rich warm tones of the Typography line are just absolutely luscious! I have to admit, this paper line has grown on me a lot, I love it more and more with each use.

I layered chipboard elements with flowers and metal staples to create simple adornment on each tag.

I also adore the addition of lots of Petaloo flowers to each of my tags.

By simply adding a bit of twine or ribbon to the chip board pieces, it is easy to add texture and interest to a tag.

I also love all the great quotes and saying that Graphic 45 added to this line, there are lots of gems for sure.
