New Charms & Filigree, Lover’s Promenade Art & Sale

Filed under Laura Carson, Paper Dolls/Theatres, Regency Era, Valentine's Day

What with Valentine’s Day almost here AND the Regency Era theme of this month’s kit, I remembered this fab artwork by Laura Carson. A romantic project that’s not pink suits me fine!

Lover’s Promenade Traveling Theatre

For the base of her theatre, Laura used an Open Front Shadowbox and a Cirque Theatre Shadowbox Facade.

“Once the Open Front Shadowbox was put together I used decorative paper to cover the outside of the shadowbox. On the inside, I added the background scenery from the French Fairies Shadowbox Facade Collage Sheet.

“So they would be more sturdy, I backed the characters from the Mini Regency Fashion Collage Sheet with heavy cardstock and attached the characters to the back wall of the shadowbox. To make it appear as if the characters were at different distances in the theatre, I used pop up Glue Dots.

“Images from the Gatefold Square Shrine Curtains collage sheet to create a skirt for the stage. I thought that the skirt gave the piece more height and provided a place to attach the wheels.

“The side faux door frames come from the Antique Frames Digital Set. You’ll notice I used the same image in the background as I used for the background in the shadowbox. The couples on the doors are from Days Gone By Collage Sheet (and/or the Download Set).”

A couple notes: Laura used the Cirque Theatre Shadowbox Facade at the top of her shadowbox, but as the collage sheet image she overlaid fits the Theatre Francais Shadowbox Facade, I’ve added that facade to today’s sale, too! I also included 2 options as substitutes for the metal findings Laura used as handles on the side doors (preview pics and more info below in the sale section).

A few more supplies are shown below; see everything Laura used to make her Lover’s Promenade Traveling Theatre in the Supply List. And see more tutorial pics and details on Laura’s blog post.
