I love exploring antique, thrift, "junque" stores...how every you describe them, nothing is better than finding cool junk! Those one time discards become your wonderful treasure.
The Graphic 45 "Olde Curiosity Shoppe" patterned paper reminds me of the wandering through the perfect antique store. How to use such a imaginative paper line, chip board die-cuts and of course "Wild Honey" Distress Ink...?
Create a antique store mini album!
The cover of the album is the "front window" of the Olde Curiosity Shop...with a glimpse of the fascinating bits and pieces waiting to be discovered.
Layered on the "window" is a pewter Bee...Opening the cover to the first pages shows some of the fantastic oddities. Best of all...a flying pig!
Stepping further into the shop we find butterflies and bees...and a mysterious lady with a copper key.
Turning the page we notice a rare butterfly collection...
What clever oddities will we spy next? A peacock feather and a "flying" shoe!
We have poked in ever nook and cranny of the shop and now have come to the end...
There is always something fascinating to happen upon in the Olde Curiosity Shoppe
