Get a great idea from Diane's workshop with this fantastic new collection! Love how this was created:

"Begin with a G45 12x12" Matchbook Box. Spray inside and out with black spray paint. Decide how you want your Apothecary Project divided inside. I took mine from inspiration from the signature page. Tape your dividers in place with G45 Washi Tape. Then get creative with the background papers in each box. There are so many different pictures to choose from for a fussy cut. The Articles of Antiquity page has a page full of book spines that can be layered on top of any of the other papers. I used little scrap pieces of balsa wood and modpodged them on. The outside of the box was covered with Charmed, I'm Sure paper. Then I started looking for some of my own Rare Oddities around the house to place in each box. The top of the box is a piece that I found at a flea market. Always keep your eyes open for interesting little architecture pieces. They can be a great addition to your art. It is covered with Charmed, I'm Sure and parts of the signature page. Then a few more fussy cuts for layering. Enjoy!"

"Rare Oddities"! I am thrilled and cannot wait for this collection. It is classic and vintage and will greatly enhance the All Hallow's Eve Wedding project that I am working on for a very special Bride and Groom. The skeleton with top hat is perfect!

Can't wait to get my hands on this fab collection - whoop whoop! This is one of my new favorites!

Cool paper line. This will work well with the last couple of Halloween collections. Colors would coordinate and themes. Might be fun to combine all 3 together and see what I could make. I've been hoarding my Alice in Wonderland paper, here would be a good excuse to use it.

The spine of the book on the end says it all: Magic from A to Z.
One of your best collections yet!!!!

I don't know why but for some reason this collection is just calling to me. :) Love Rare Oddities and I really love Diane's project...very cool!
