hey bloggers! with just a week left before i leave for cha i still have an overwhelming amount of things to do! of course that also means i have a week's worth of sneak peeks to still share as well. you know it's funny that after all of these years of this "ritual" from companies and designers to share their new cha product releases via "sneak peeks", there are still people out there bothered by it all. some feel it's antagonistic, while others feel there's nothing "sneaky" about it?
the meaning of a "sneak peek" is defined as a special viewing or informational presentation of an art piece or product, given to a select audience before being shown to the general public. It is synonymous with "special preview" or "teaser."
i am excited to continue sharing all of the things i've been working on with all of you!
so for those of you still reading...
get ready to alter your creativity like never before.
get ready to have the ability to design with your specific creative needs in mind.
get ready to find a place to display your favored keepsakes and artful treasures.
get ready to explore "configurations"!
configurations are dimensional shadow boxes made from 1/8" wrapped paper board (not thin chipboard or paper mache'). these sturdy covered boxes are inkable, paintable, collagable, and best of all - configurable.
available in 4 different sizes, each configuration comes with a framed lid with removable acetate window so you decide how you want to display it. measuring approx. 2" deep each configurations can be used to display your most dimensional elements, mini books, and better yet, they fit the curio knobs and foundation feet like a dream! stand them up or lay them flat, you decide how to display it.
what makes these unlike anything out there is, they are of course, completely configurable...or re-configurable if you wish. inside each box are individual boxes that can be configured in a variety of ways.
of course my most favorite aspect is you can even remove any of the boxes to create larger compartments for taller or wider objects, it's completely up to you how you customize it. now THAT IS cool..
don't forget to use the boxes you choose to remove too... look at that - mini shadow boxes, as many as you'd like!
cover the boxes with your favorite inks, papers, paints or fabrics to create a design to fit your style - and for those seams between each inner box, tissue tape is the perfect solution. in fact, that's what holds everything together!.
