There is a book out called "What Would Jane Do?: Quips and Wisdom from Jane Austen" that inspired this piece. And Jane herself, of course!
What would Jane do in a difficult situation? Would she put the kettle on? Be politely sympathetic to a gossipy old busybody?
Or would she give the hornets nest a ladylike shove?
I started off this project with the Square Shrine Gatefold and taped the pieces together using Linen Book Binding tape.
I cut two images from my collage sheet of Jane that fit into the Flourished Frame-Elizabeth (coming soon) And glued them to a piece of cardboard I cut to fit the inside of the frame.
Tea Time Shape and Border Set on both sides of the Gatefold, painting them white and giving them a little shadow and detail to add a bit of dimension.
Victorian Corners 2 as details under the spoons. I cut the ends off of both to accommodate the What Would Jane Do plaque as I had a spot of trouble getting it to stay flat!
I also used a poster paint marker in white to add little dots and details to the piece. So fun to think of Jane and all the wonderful hours of reading I have had with her. Now I'm off to have a cuppa!
