Favorite project from 2013: Typography Tray

I had fully meant to do a year in review post, but somehow I never got around to it.  I was super excited to be revived into some sort of memoir post from a prompt on Natalie Kalback's 2014 Creative Jump start. The task posed to all the "jumpers" is to share their favorite project from 2013.   It was tough to narrow down, but this Typography Letterbox Tray is my pick.

This project was previously featured on Paper Crafter's Library, so it is also nice to be able to document this project in my own little corner of the blogging universe.

The focal for this piece is the lovely Typography paper by Graphic 45.  I fell in love with this paper line for sure.

I like to incorporate unique junk into my assemblage pieces to create a story.  Here you can see an old typewriter key as well as a few old pen nibs.

Lots of flowers by Petaloo were used to add lots of color and texture to this collection.

The sentiments in this paper line are just perfect for the artist.

I love this embossed butterfly, dusted in gilders paste.  I also used it in copper along the edges of the box for yummy texture.  

More junk by the way of a jack, a key, some tags and wood block accents add more unique interest.

I just love the rich palate, so unlike my usual work but I embraced it!

The typewriter metal embellishment was a perfect fit for this project.  Assemblage continues to be my favorite art form to date.

I hope you found a little bit of inspiration along the way. Thank you so much for stopping by!
