I joined the Halloween Matchbox swap at Vintage Dragonfly and was very excited to be paired with the very talented Lynn from Trash to Treasure Art. I have seen Lynn's work published in Stampington magazines many times and love her creations. Here is the wonderful matchbox and the awesome goodies she sent me.
First is this hauntingly spooky matchbox. We used the larger size box for this swap. I love the wicked tag chained to the skelly hand.
The inside was filled with one fabulous treat after another.
I absolutely love the coffin pendant! There's also an ATC, altered tiles and mini potion card.
Then there is this wonderful mini accordion book. Love all the haunting details.
And finally an altered tin with this great vintage image.
The best part was the inside! I love the spooky gothic vignette and the quote she used with it.
Thank you so much Lynn. I love everything!!
Be sure to visit her at Trash to Treasure Art, you will be delighted and inspired.
These are what I created for Lynn. I had to keep the contents outside because I got a little carried away decorating the inside of the matchbox!
I used the story I created about the two sisters' Apothecarium as the theme.
I wanted the matchbox to have the look of an old drawer you might find in a forgotten attic.
This is the bottom of the 'drawer'. I imagined it as the entrance to the shop.
This is the inside. You can see why I couldn't fit anything in it. I filled it with oddities found in Sybilla and Delphine's curious shop. Lynn actually has better pictures of my box here.
Among the items found in the shop is an obscure spellbook....an accordion book made from 4 ATCs.
A mini matchbox with a nod to the great Edgar Allen Poe.
I was also inspired to create a story about an odd species of pixies.
And I gave Lynn her very own captured Pilkington pixie. I hope it doesn't give her any trouble, they can be a handfull!
Thank you so much again Lynn. I love all my goodies and I had so much fun swapping with you.
