Heal- Mixed Media Shadow Box by Keren Tamir

I created this artsy shadow box frame as a gift to my husband. My husband is a Chiropractor and I wanted to design a mixed media piece for him to hang in his office. I had a plastic spine shaped object from an old key-chain he used to have. I used it as the centre piece of my art work.
I wanted to create a very vintage, worn out looking piece, so I used one of my all time favourite collections Dreamer. The colours in the dreamer collection were perfect to use to create this effect. I used the “Daydreaming” paper to wrap and cover the wooden frame. Then I used the “Sleepless” paper as accents.
I also used lots of chipboard to embellish the shadow box both on the edges and as an anchor for the spine.

“Flea Market”- the taylor’s drawer

Hello again!
Here we go with our second inspirational post from the “Flea Market” section! This time our wonderful Design Team is looking into the taylor’s drawers, boxes and jars, which are filld with all kind sewing goodies such as nedles, pins, fasteners, zippers and many more! Just look what they’ve found and what amazing creations we have today!

Aaaah, using elements from a taylor’s drawer is so much fun! I used buttons, an old zipper cut into portions to place in random places on the page, a template for fabric cutting as the circle mask in the background, and then used snaps to embellish along with paints, gel, and molding paste. This is my adorable niece, Kenzie, and I think she is just too cute for words, so of course I used the more cutesy line – Elise Rebel. Torn bits of paper in grey’s and oranges were exactly what would draw this photo out, and I had a bit of fun playing with the sticker embellishents also. Not only did I use the polka dot sticker border, but I cut out its frame from the sticker sheet and used that up to! (Those are the thin bits of polka dot strips on the page.

In the taylor’s drawer I found a lot of inspiring, interesting “little treasures” which made me do this small notebook. I used buttons, pins, belt buckle, elastic band and a bit of lace too. I also decided to add stitching made with sweing machina and by free hand, to underline the inspiration with taylor’s work.
