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!"

OMG! last year I bought a wood piece that is just perfect for this collection! Can't wait to buy it and use it. I tend to buy and hoard but this time I will use it because this line looks like it was made just for my project. And just maybe I will buy another just to hoard! LOL!
