PROGRESS ON THE ALTERED LITTLE CABINET

In the Spring of my heart, I sang in your garden


This darling little cabinet which measures 11" tall and 7" wide is coming along.

I will not say that the collage was inspired by the cabinet,
but rather,
once the
faerie became part of the collage, it magically (love that magic) was the perfect
size for the front of the cabinet door.

The text, words cut from a beloved book purchased for this very thing, just spoke to me
and absolutely fit the beautiful feeling of 'memory'


How I love the gentleness of her face and dthe sweetness of the sparrow flying in to sing
yet another song for her

The little bird is one of the stamps in a set from Cavalini
that I so desired but never spoke of
but MY little bird seem to know
and gifted me with them.
I adore each and every one of those stamps.
The door shuts so fabulously due to a little magnet in the lower right hand side...
can you see it?
and the little hooks allow you to hang a few bracelets or treasures or keys.

Or...
possibly tiny hangers holding little faerie dresses!!!

I added the 'remember' with rub on text.

My all time favorite brand so far is the Making Memories brand.
I found these at the Fry's supermarket!! $2.49 for several words and phrases.
Black and white.

There is no fighting with this brand to get it off the paper and onto the project like I have experienced with another brand that I bought at Michaels.

This little cabinet is far from finished.........and I am not sure if it's a 'keeper' (something I rarely do)
or an ETSY item or a gift.

Too early to tell.

But I wanted to share the little bit of progress I've made.
It may sit for a while now as I have a little list of projects in my head

and, of course,
there is the obsession of drawing...........so much I want to do....

...only so many hours to play.

Good Morning,
I have to tell you that I'm am blown away by the idea of putting your art on something three dimentional. Well I guess I have done that but not in this way and for some reason today it is all fresh and new to me. Makes Norah's quite dancing in my head get louder and louder. This is fab.
