Pyramid Of Life

My days off have been filled with moving furniture as Grant paints the house room by room. The bathroom and toilet walls are now lagoon teal in colour. My soon to be craft room is a rich cream and these last 2 days Tim's room got painted a gorgeous sky blue. Next Saturday and Sunday Grant will paint our bedroom and after that I can claim the spare room at last and move my stash in. At the moment there are still cupboards and stuff everywhere in the lounge/dinning area where my art desk is. I've never really kept much in the way of paper crafts that I have made in the past and thought I would make myself a project to display in my new room when I move in. It took several days to get completed with all the other disruptions going on but I like the way it turned out.
I had some painted and Cuttlebug embossed backgrounds on my desk from a past project so used some as my backgrounds on my pyramid. My mind is still stuck on shrines I think as a simple triangle card got turned into a pyramid with removable little draws LOL. I could work on each triangle side while flat and then each draw and once all dry I simply popped the draws in place and glued the whole thing together. I'd been thinking about what I need in my life as a theme for this project. Not the have to haves like water or food but what I need for my heart and soul type of things. So one side was "I need creative ideas". Cogs, light bulbs, fuses and watch parts for time as well, were all incorporated into it.

 The lens can be moved up to see the contents of the draw underneath.

The bulb closer. It can be moved side ways or straight up and down.

 The ideas draw contents closer.

 and the lens covering the recess before the draw was put back in.

"I need love" side. Has a small bottle for my love potion number 9 mix, flowers, hearts and of course some cupids. The draw has a vintage couple embraced in a kiss and a tiny key. We all need a key to our hearts.

 The little love potion bottle closer.

 The love drawer contents closer.

The last side I chose "I need music". A troop of musicians filled my draw, notes, instruments and music scattered around.

Detail closer.

The music draw contents closer.

Probabaly wont be able to get inky for a fortnight now, till I have my stash moved. I'm looking forward to having my own space at last though so the wait is worth it. :o)
