2021 Topic 14: Mash Up LPC EGL EEV EAB
I have been wanting something to tidy up my work space for sometime now. Not really knowing what it was, I bought a pile of MDF pieces in a thrift store. Once home, I built it and it took me an hilariously long time to realize it was a desk organizer (I was holding it upside down!). I immediately knew I wanted to populate it with some of Lynne Perrella's characters. I particularly fell in love with her 'modern' stamp sets, LPC053 and LPC054.
I love the patterns made by letters and I must admit I often struggle to connect with quotes not in my native language so I had originally planed to use the Alison Bomber's quotes in this Mash Up to build the background. I did not want to crowd the surfaces too much and with people alone, it looked a bit bare. The quotes then got a leading role! I chose EAB14: The Happiness Edition, because who doesn't want to be happy at work?
After disassembling the organizer, I coated all the pieces in my chosen colours. I find that two thin coats works better for me than one thick one. As the base is not going to be seen a lot, I painted it blue for maximum contrast. Ellen Vargo's texture stamps are amazing to give interest to a background. One of my favorite is EEV06 with all its bubbles and circles.
