Saturday Special with Kraft Outlet

For some of us die-hard papercrafters it's hard to imagine an artistic world outside our scrap space. It's not that we don't know other art is out there... we just tend to focus on papercrafts. So, we thought it would be fun to broaden our horizons a bit here at The Kraft Journal and introduce a Saturday Special post for our weekly blog line-up, where I'll highlight handmade Primitive, Folk Art, and unique Vintage items. You may choose to use these posts as inspiration for your next papercraft project, or maybe you'll even happen across something that will make the perfect addition to your home.

With Spring just around the corner, I've been most inspired by projects that lend themselves to that theme and this little guy, Chester the Spring Chick deserves to be noticed!

Artist: Babette Switzer

This funny little fellow is in search of an Egg! Chester is a Paper Mache figure measuring 6.5" tall and 4" wide. He is very dapper with his Robin's Egg blue velvet bow tie and vintage Mother of Pearl buttons. He holds a rusty heart like a balloon and sits on a nest of Spanish Moss atop a vintage sewing spool wrapped with distressed muslin. The word EGG has been spelled out with a vintage distressed Scrabble tile E and two hand stamped G's. He was stained to give him a wonderful prim patina. Chester is available for sale at MySpareTimeDesigns2 Etsy Shoppe for only $24.00 and/or at My Spare Time Designs website right here. 

For more unique handmade Primitive, Folk Art and Vintage finds visit the PrimNest, a Primitive FolkArt Market Place featuring handmade items to help you feather your nest.

Don't forget that you still have until 6:00 P.M., Eastern Time this Sunday to join this week's papercraft challenge here at The Kraft Journal for a chance to win a gift voucher for shopping at Kraft Outlet, a Top Three button for your blog or perhaps be our next Featured Artist on Feature Me Friday.
