Over at Inspiration Avenue, Luthien has challenged us to create something with the theme Aged Beauty. I just love that aged look, from brass, to aged paper to distressed surfaces.
I found an aged looking pewter ballerina and from there on the rest was just magic!
I took an old cigar box and used plenty of vintage papers. I lined the floor of the theatre with the classic harlequin pattern and distressed it to appear really old. The walls of the theatre has been distressed and paint is peeling off. At the back of the theatre is a sheet of pewter and you can see the ballerina's shadow against it!
On the inside of the door, which I also covered with paper, I mounted a vintage ballerina pendant on a piece of velvet inside an antiqued frame.
And a bit of magic with a candle lit theater!
And then I found this magnificent aged imitation pewter mask and I put it on top of my Victorian Theatre!
A happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends.
