Etsy Inspired #128 - The Hidden Alphabet

Saturday, February 26, 2011


Whew...it's been a busy week for me getting ready for standardized testing in our school district. I wanted to pop in today to share the fun challenge at Etsy Inspired this week!

Our featured shop is - "The Hidden Alphabet"

This shop takes ordinary objects and architectural elements are turn them into original, photographic art that resemble letters of the alphabet.

I was inspired by the framed work above and the colors in this piece.
Here's the Mini Card that I made:


I wanted to let the words be the main focal point. I put the words in a chipboard frame. It reads "The Best of Friends - Always Together". I added a butterfly and flower to girly it up a bit.

Here's how you can play along with Etsy Inspired:
♥ Find an item that you like from The Hidden Alphabet.
♥ Create some cuteness!
♥ Link your creation up to EIC by Friday, March 4th.

Shop Prize: an 8x10 personalized LOVE print from The Hidden Alphabet

Sponsor Prize: Vintage & flower tags from Paper & Roses. They have gorgeous items in their shop.
