Assemblage – Elizabeth (Elizabeth Bennet Pride & Prejudice)

Elizabeth Bennet

Pride and Prejudice is a novel by Jane Austen, first published in 1813, it is the inspiration for my latest assemblage dress. The story follows the main character Elizabeth Bennet as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of early 19th-century England. Elizabeth is the second of five daughters of a country gentleman, living near the fictional town of Meryton in Hertfordshire, near London.

Assemblage – Alice (Drink Me)

The assemblage as a closed book

I was given a tiny old 1930’s encyclopedia and loved the size of it.  So, I just thought of Alice in Wonderland, where she enters a minature world.

The assemblage opened

When I took the photos for our online shop and Etsy store the sun was out and I managed to get some good photos in the natural light.  Here are some of the extra photos I took but have not been used on Etsy.

Assemblage – Another Stolen Moment

I’m enjoying playing with book sculptures at the moment and love the idea of little theater sets.

Another Stolen Moment

In the next few pieces I want to create drama and atmosphere in the pieces.

As usual this assemblage is available in my online shop or Etsy store

Treasury Time – hold the front page

Just had to put this one up.  I put this treasury together last Thursday and thought nothing more about it.

I normally have Tom sort out notifying everybody when I put together a treasury and they usually respond via Etsy.  Well, like I said, I forgot this time so, when I checked for views and clicks on Friday , I was suprised  to see so many responses.  On looking at the replies I fond out the teasury had made it onto the front page at Etsy.  First time for me!
