    Creativity Corner Vive La Différence

    Vive La Différence – Pop-Up Store

    December 10, 2012

    Happy monday! Here we are again. Another dose of vive la différence.

    The concept: each month I will invite one blogger. They will create and showcase one image/vignette. There are 20 themes and 20 objects for my guest to choose from. They choose 1 theme and up to 3 objects. I will then create an image/vignette based on their choice. Everyone has free reign on how to create the image. It can be simple photography, a drawing, a collage, a hand-painted image, a styled table top… the choice is yours! The fun part is that you, my readers, will see 2 versions inspired by the same subject matter. There is no right or wrong. There’s just ‘different’.

    I’m delighted we have our first food blogger, all the way from Australia! Today, let me introduce you to Catherine from  Catherine lives in Melbourne, Australia with her family.

    Catherine chose the theme: Pop-up store! She chose the following objects: Food, Magazines and Candles.

    Ok, without any further delays, here’s catherine’s explanation and interpretation.

    “Inspired by a bush christmas market I went to recently, i decided to make my pop up store a rustic christmas store. For the food I chose plum pudding as it’s one of my favourite christmas desserts. The candles in the clear glass were made by me sourcing old crystal from the charity shop and the magazine component is the christmas decorations..hanging hearts made out of old magazine paper”.

    My pop up store is an alternative christmas store. Chocolate and nuts for food and torn up magazines pages inside the little giftbags. Candles at each side. The backdrop is a cardboard folder and the ‘love you’ card is hand-made by upcycling artist alison sye.

    Phew! That was quite a challenge for both of us, right Catherine?

    I want to thank Catherine for getting us in the christmas mood and being my last guest blogger for 2012. I hope you’ve enjoyed this series (I know i have) and look forward to more guest bloggers in 2013. For those who haven’t come forward yet, please feel free to join in!

    My next guest blogger is lined up and vive la différence will be back on monday 7th january 2013.

    Have a great start to the week and i shall see you back here on thursday.
