    New Art Deco, Crowns, Teapots, Giveaway, FREE gift!

    Filed under Art Deco, Dresden, Giveaways, Pierrot/Harlequin/Carnival, Shannon Cooper

    NEW Mini Masks FREE Gift Kit! In honor of Fat Tuesday next week, the new Roaring 20s Scrapbook Papers (and artwork below from Design Team Member Shannon Cooper), I put together a mini mask set AND a collage sheet with ladies sized to fit the masks! (See the preview at right.)

    I’m assuming most Mardi Gras festivities are pretty toned down this year, but that won’t stop making artwork!

    ALL ORDERS on Thursday through Saturday, February 11th through 13th (2021) will receive one of these collage sheets and the mini set of 4 laser-cut masks FREE!

    A BIG NEW SALE: 50% off on Art Deco & Carnival Collage Sheets! The sale ends SATURDAY NIGHT, February 13th at midnight PST. See below for a few highlights! (The Secret Collage Sheet at left is part of the sale and also used in the artwork below.)

     
    Revisiting Shannon Cooper’s Mysterious Masquerade Altered Tin

    You may remember this beautiful altered tin that Shannon made a few year’s ago. It uses part of a Small Quatrefoil Panel in the background (and you can just make out a masked lady hiding behind that screen).

    Plus the main image is from the The Secret Collage Sheet mentioned above (and part of the sale).

    How regal with that crown (actually just a piece of a Chipboard Fleur Border, bent into a curve and attached to the top of an Altoid’s Tin)!

    And see that swirly frame at the bottom of the tin (framing the “Mysterious” text)? That’s from the Fairy Tale Frames Altoid Inserts Set (a big set with 3 options of inserts & matching frames).

    See more photos (and tips) on Shannon’s blog post!

    Here’s a link to all the items still available from the supply list. And check below in the Giveaway to enter the drawing for supplies from this project!

      The first thing I would love to do with all the supplies is send them to Shannon and have her make me one of these gorgeous tins she made here!!! OMG how gorgeous!!!
