March Kit and Upcoming Classes

LeCirque Altered Lantern

I hope that everyone had a rested weekend.
We have been busy in the studio.. 
Putting last minute touches on 
our last Graphic 45 submissions...
While creating we came up with this
little altered jem a week ago.

We have been wanting to do something with
those smaller square cigar boxes for a long time...
You know the ones... not quite right for an altered purse... 
not really big enough for an altered shadow box..
But then it dawned on us...
Its big enough to fit a small hobby light inside..
lets make it a small peep lantern..
At the same time we have had circus fever here in the studio.
Can't get enough...  So here is this months kit.

We call it the Le Cirque Altered Lantern. 
We hope that you enjoy it.
We will also be teaching this project here
in town this weekend at Mystic Paper.
It will be in the afternoon after our Distress Ink Technique class.
