A Challenge

Sunday, October 30, 2011

Well its that time again,  what time you ask?  Time for another Magazine Copy Cat Challenge. This so much fun, I'm so happy to be able to join in again.. I really wanted to copy a Christmas photo but since all of my Christmas stuff is in the attic and I don't go up there and my hubs is working long hours and he couldn't get it for me, I went to plan B. I used a picture that caught my eye from Cottage Style Magazine from May, 2010.





The magazine picture was taken under a cabinet with a really  nice marble back splash, trust me under my kitchen cabinet is not so cute and my tile back splash...  well lets just say it aint pretty, so I used this backdrop that I created from poster board with vintage book pages glued to it. I added a frame that I painted and one of my silver trays for interest. I had these faux dried look hydrangeas and I altered them to  give them the look of hydrangeas at the end of the season. I only have one chicken tureen so in place of the second one I used a small  ironstone tureen and added white gourds and pine cones as a nod to fall. In place of  the small pitcher I used a milk glass creamer from my collection.The tureens and pitcher in the inspiration pic are sitting on a marble slab, I sat mine on some porcelain marble tiles that I bought for a project.I set it all on a vintage curtain panel that I bought from the thrift store long ago.  This is the inspiration photo:


Its a spring issue  and as you can see this picture is on the table of contents page. Since its fall  I decided to add a little fall flavor to it.  Here are a few more takes on the photo at slightly different angles just because I'm addicted to editing  in Picnik.








Thanks  Debbie  for creating this fun idea. I'll be linking up to the Magazine Copy Cat Challenge  at Debbie Doos Blogging and Blabbing be sure to stop by to see all of the great ideas.
