The challenge this week over at The Three Muses was to use a window in your work. Please stop by and see the rest of the entries, they are always creative and wonderfully varied!
I started with a cardboard box from my face lotion which I had taken out the clear cellophane window. I gathered three greeting cards and cut, painted and cropped until I got the right length for each image. I glued these onto the box along with bits of vintage lace. I then added a clear glaze which crazed wonderfully (but I don’t think that it was supposed to!). The box is 6-1/2″ tall x 3-1/2″ wide x 1-3/8″ deep.
I added a vine of fabric leaves along the edges; a vintage celluloid pin of pink roses; vintage paper roses which are peaking out of the inside of the box and the top of the box; vintage painted glass leaves; mother of pearl butterfly charms; gold dragonfly charms; plastic fairy charms; a glass lady bug; and handmade flowers made from vintage ruffled ribbon.
Through the Fairie’s Window
Peering through the garden’s window
Amongst the roses and the garden vine,
I see you are already waiting there for me
Fairy fare dear friend of mine.
Who is looking through your window and asking you to play? Enjoy your day! Christen
