Today I decided to celebrate my day off with an art project done just for me. It has been ages since I have made art not intended for one of my design teams, and I have to say the project came together effortlessly.
I embraced the full color palate of the Couture paper line by Graphic 45. It has some really lovely sentiments and messages that are good reminders as I am taking better care of my physical body. Hopefully soon the efforts will be able to be seen in my own new style. It is coming this year: 40...and I hope to be fabulous and not that other f word.
This "couture" stand is made from an old sewing machine part and a piece of Graphic 45 chipboard. I just love using unique things in my stash to make a project have my own individual flair.
In the "classy" box above I used an old shoe clip to back the card stock sticker. This made for great texture and added another great fashion themed embellishment.
I added a precious typewriter key along with a few black vintage snaps I had in my stash. Again, the snaps made for a great re-purposed decoration in this assemblage.
In this cubby I added a bezel from Spellbinders I filled with Ice Resin. I stuck this word right on top of the saying "Isn't she lovely." It is a good secret reminder for me to remember and believe that sentiment. A vintage button, a few more snaps and one of the great new shabby chic staples finished out this section of the piece.
More reminders to accept myself and remember by beauty.
I thought the crown was fitting for this saying from Coco Chanel.
To finish out my tray, I peppered in lots of color with a few bunches of paper flowers. I think this element really makes the piece pop and gives the eyes places to wander.
Thank you so much for stopping by. It was so much fun to create something just for me!
