project is an altered choccy box :o)
|(He ate ice cream while he rested)|
My inspiration for this piece was the retro picture of
the young boy, day dreaming while he has a rest
from his chores (from the GA vintage text pages).
The pictures around the boy give an idea of the
things he's dreaming about.
I started off with an empty chocolate box
(the chocs were yummmmmmm!).
I liked the inner box because of the broad rim,
giving the effect of a frame.
(This photo was taken before my major clean up.
You can see how little space I had to work in!)
I liked the quote by H Wadsworth,
which seemed to sum up daydreaming;
Sit in reverie and
Watch the changing colour of the waves
That break upon the idle seashore
Of the mind.

Note to self: must eat more chocs,
the boxes are great!
As mentioned in yesterday's Rocking Friday post,
Katie (from The Red Tin)
and I did a postcard swap -
she sent me a GORGEOUS canvas board
postcard (which I showed yesterday),
and I sent her a card postcard.
Katie's arrived safe and sound
and hooray, now so has mine!
|(I am amazed by you)|
I had fun making this card for Katie.
I'm going to try sending a
canvas board one next......
I still haven't made this week's postcard
for Darcy's Postcard Challenge.
The country is Cuba.
All I can think of is cigars
and Fidel Castro.
