We just HAD to share this inspirational theatre work from Betty which we hope will give you even more ideas on how to complete our challenge! As you can see she has made a theatre within a theatre - so clever! Remember that it doesn't have to be a large piece of work - you could even make one in a matchbox or shrine ... so go on, what are you waiting for??

Theatrical! Lori so impressed us with the theatres she made for some of our preceding challenges that we asked her to be our Guest Designer for this month. She's provided several views of her fabulous piece so you can see it from all angles - and it was built on a 6" square unfinished wooden craft box with sliding doors made from the lid, available at any number of craft stores.
Lori says she loves paper dolls and all things Gothic, and with Halloween approaching wanted to create something in a darker mood. She searched out artist papers and images, attaching them with spray adhesive (brayer the image to remove air bubbles). Once all the surfaces were covered she glued the removeable doors to the side of the box to create the "wings". She then added trim to represent footlights and her paper dolls have a support behind them.
So there you have your fabulous inspiration for our theatre theme!! Maybe you will want to have a go at making a theatre, large or small, of your own, or adapt the theme in some way? Whatever you do we want to see it!! Can't wait to see what you come up with ....
