Library Drawer Turned Shadow Box
- Connie FongA couple years ago, I found the posts for Deb and Paula’s Junk Drawer Advent Calendar, and I was hooked! Deb and Paula are designers for 7gypsies and I’ve been following their blog (http://www.2gypsygirls.com/) ever since. I've been inspired by their many creative ideas.
So fast forward to last month when Deb asked me to create a project for the 7gypsies booth at CHA. I was full of emotions: happy, excited, nervous and scared. How fun it would be to receive a box full of 7gypsies product; but how nervous I was to create a project for them that would live up to their standards.
My assignment was to make a shadow box from the library drawer. I felt that was doable and allowed me to focus in one area.
I have to share with you how I started the project. I layed out and sorted all the product on my kitchen table. I stared at it all day and then went to bed, not doing anything with the supplies yet, but just allowing the ideas to crystallize in my head. In the middle of the night the ideas came to me and I got up and sketched this.
