I'll teach you some tricks

For today's Retro Cafe Art  design piece, I knew I would be using this cute tv piece cause I love watching certain television.  My favorite shows this season are Once, Game of Thrones, PBS Downton Abbey- now Sherlock, Lost Girl and Mad Men.  What are you watching? And then for me it's all about the story and getting lost in another world another time.....this is probably why I adore reading books too. Now that I think about it, my art has such a narrative quality too and always tells a story! LOL.

 The center piece today is the silver painted Retro TV trinket from Retro Cafe Art. I have accented with the 50's cat eye glasses and the  sentiment "I'll teach you some tricks." I set it into a mod patterned white and silver paper in a chunky white frame. The final touch were the corners that have dimensional painted circles and tiny black stars.

Hope you discover some "secrets" this week.
take care, gerri
