For Crown and Country... and maybe a Prince

Oh this was a fun Treasury to make! I started with Hattie Albino, a fabulous and haunting print by AmberAlexander. This artist does amazing work and I really encourage you to check out her Etsy Shop. She brings such human emotion to the animals she paints. Some are adorable and some seem almost menacing. I love art that evokes feelings, whether welcome, or uncomfortable. To me, an emotional connection is the true value of art. 

Once I had Hattie in place, I went in search of regal items to accompany her. While searching for "goth lace" I ran into the Victorian Inspired Neck Corset and the model struck a similar chord as Hattie! Brilliant! 

So now I had two beautiful ladies. I went in search of a Prince. Instead I found a Frog. But he really looks like he could be a Prince if only regal lips would find their way to his slimy skin.

I added in some ruby red items, a vintage jewelry box, and some fearful citizens, and there you go! A Treasury that tells a tale of menace, greed, and heartbreak. Please come pay a visit and leave a comment. :)
