Lover’s Tryst Theatre – and Spring Flowers Sale

Filed under Amour Kit, Art Projects, Flowers, Giveaways, Newsletters, Sale, Tristan Robin Blakeman

Note: most of the links on this post no longer work, as we moved to a new Web site in 2018. However, you can see the supply list items from Tristan’s project that are still available on the new site.

Design Team Member Tristan Robin Blakeman has created a lovely, lovely Valentine-themed theatre; inspired by the January Amour Kit.

For my Lover’s Tryst Theatre, I started with Alpha Stamps’ Gatefold Triptych Shrine Blank and chose the Gatefold Square Shrine Curtains to cover it with. Adding lots of chipboard, papers and flowers created a much larger and more elaborate scene than the original triptych.

“Sitting on top of the display pedestals are adorable miniature terra cotta flower pots filled with paper flowers.

(I love the cute little pedestals (under the pink flower pots) that Tristan made from the window pane images in the Oddities Box Doors and Windows Collage Sheet and some White Half Round Dresden. See the lower left close-up in the photos at right.)

The two Valentine lovers are meeting in the garden, over a fresh pot of flowers (Fancy Red Holly Berries that Tristan turned pink with a little bit of paint). The final touch for the Lover’s Tryst Theatre is a bit of decadent Sweeper Fringe.”

    Breath-taking! I am in such awe of the design team. I love the little flower pots. I’d add some long types of flowers to the Paper Flowers collection–lavender, calla lilies, gladioli. They would be great to use in miniature containers for other garden projects. And some drapey vines too, especially sweet potato vines.

    re-lable some with the size they really are.
    Thanks for the chance to win this lovely giveaway.

  59. Thalia says:

    Love the paper flowers, any in purple would be fabulous.

  60. I believe the addition of various types of flower pots would be great! There are different materials and those that display in different ways. Even the upside down tomato plant grower pot. Strawberry pots, even strawberry rings, the shape of the area strawberries are grown in. Thanks!
