Today I'm sharing three of my favourites. Hopefully something will spark a creative thought that you can use in your own projects. For me that's the whole point of sharing creative endeavours. Of course it's nice to show the fruits of your labours and greatly encouraging to have it well received but the best thing of all is that by sharing we inspire and encourage each other to keep on creating and developing our own interests and styles.
The bathroom and hallway are on the 1st floor of the 1:12 scale Parisian apartment. The image on the left shows how the bathroom looks through the window, and if you look through the doorway you can see part of the upper floor hallway. On the far wall you can just see the cupboard. It will be almost entirely hidden from view when the wall that divides the hallway from the bedroom in front of it is put in place. The only possible glimpse will be through the bathroom exactly as you see here. I suppose it could be considered, then, that it was a waste of time doing anything with this cupboard at all but I really wanted to do it properly for my own satisfaction. It's very shallow (about 1 cm only) but I wanted to try out creating the illusion of proper depth. I think it's worked fairly well.
This is the Parisian kitchen from outside looking in. I think there's something extra charming about mini rooms viewed from the outside, perhaps it's just that it's a different perspective because we're so used to seeing everything 'front on'. I bought the lavender at a minis fair, the tiny plant is by Mercedes @ Liberty Biberty and the apron on the far wall by Frederica. The windows are handmade - something I'd never do again! Way too much trouble although I do like the look of them, not perfect as factory made so they contribute to the overall softer/aged look I suppose.
I made this little French artist's attic in a fake book (which is really a storage box) as a Christmas gift for my artistic daughter-in-law Lamina @ doabit. The life-drawing and landscape sketches are Lamina's own work, copied and resized. It's one of my favourite projects.
So, that's it for mini strolls down memory lane, time to get on and do some new work!! Goodness knows there's plenty of it to do including finishing the Parisian apartment and Brocante and lots to do for upcoming fairs. Thanks again for following along and for your encouraging comments!
