Challenge #23: String Theory

This week's challenge at I am the Diva is titled String Theory. The challenge is to create a tile from a string created by Laura. That is, everybody is working off the same string. I created mine on the plane flying from Toronto to Newark. If you look closely, you will be able to spot the string. I am pleased with my effort.

Thanks for visiting.

I Love Geography

I am not usually inclined to use French themed objects in my work. But I love geography. As a child, I took great pride in being able to identify the states and the countries on the map and knowing the names of all the capital cities. So, when I saw this fabulous vintage Paris map on the Graphics Fairy, I had to use it and what better surface than that of a box? Of course, Paris and Eiffel Tower (Graphics Fairy) go hand in hand. Just by looking at it I am transported to Paris of the old. It is shabby chic at its most elegant.

Available at my Etsy shop.

Thanks for visiting

P.S. I created this box almost two weeks ago. I just found out that the person who provided the Eiffel tower image to Graphics Fairy passed away recently. Your generosity lives in multiple forms. Thanks.
