thank you also to Lucy Edmondson who was curator for my team.
Always up for a challenge, I chose the colour group: Purple (as I am not naturally drawn to this), Yellow and a touch of Blue. The brief also asked me to include one topic covered on the PaperArtsy blog
this past semester and so my idea of making a pair of matching bird themed matchboxes fitted well. One would include a tiny nest with eggs and the other a miniature bird themed book. What's more, I had been saving a sheet of paper for that 'special project' and finally it seemed the time had come to use it!
So here are photos of my finished boxes.
I like the idea that eggs hold unknown potential and will hopefully develop into birds that fly. This connects with the second box....
The quote I chose on the matchbox reminds me to
‘USE WHAT TALENT YOU POSSESS’
and the book inside reads:
'THE WOODS WOULD BE SILENT IF NO BIRDS SANG EXCEPT THOSE WHO SING BEST’.
I really enjoyed making this project – the matchboxes have been waiting quietly as an idea for some weeks and it’s a good feeling when it comes together, even more so when I feel pleased with the result and it includes purple!!
If you would like to see the works of others who have participated in this 3UP do pop across to PaperArtsy. Thanks for popping by!!
