This week at The Shabby Tea Room, Starr is challenging us to create a card or project based on the colors of this inspirational photo, along with ribbon and a sentiment…



I just love all the reflective surfaces and the rich neutrals.  I gathered some favorite patterned papers, two sentiments that I love, along with plans for two embossed images and a new mirror-like, die-cutable product from Tim Holtz that I had never used before…



I created a hanging that reminds me of the arrangement in the photo (plus some favorite additions).  The lantern and the candlestick are stamped and embossed images.  The copper and pewter embossing powders add so much warmth…



Some circular, oval and shaped die cuts made with a reflective material, mimic the plates, mirrors and mercury glass that I adore in the inspiration photo.



Some favorite stamp sentiments and a black background and ribbon finish the hanging…



It reminds me of the very old and gorgeous New England homes that I so loved as a child and young adult.  I had/have a penchant for homes built in the 1600 and 1700’s.  By today’s standards the interiors were sparse, but there is a beauty in the patina of all the natural materials that filled these homes.  I think this little banner will remind me of those magnificent homes for awhile…

Thanks so much for stopping by~
