Thank you all for your kind comments and interest into my Undersized Urbanite entry! I do appreciate your visits and your kind words. <3
I will go over some of the effects that were done in the build like rust, the coating I use for foam board and I am in the process of making a little printie to go with the tutorial in the next post or two, so not apocalyptic but just aging a object ;)
I wanted to share a couple of the gifts I received over this last month from a few terrific ladies and fantastic artists.
First off here are wondrous goodies from Lisa over at http://miniaddictions.blogspot.com/
Lisa decided to send me a filled box of amazing pieces out of the kindness of her heart. I know a few of you were lucky enough to swap with her and know how amazing she is as a miniaturist and artist, others know about her being a thoughtful blog buddy.
So you see here she sent me an array of wonderfully crafted miniatures and a dainty little fairy!
The little stone fairy is gorgeous and of course my daughter has claimed her immediately so we are going to create a terrarium style garden for indoors to place this lovely gal in. The sign is just perfection with the writing!
You see Lisa crafted this beautiful gold treasure box and sent me this fantastic daisy pillow. The Green perfume set is just elegant.
Here is a close up of the little set, it looks so regal! This is going in my Tower build!
And here is the pièce de résistance ! This amazing tart..I swear as I handled it my mouth watered and I really smelled bananas!!! Oh creamy delight. Now I must search this out and eat it in 1 to 1 scale ;)
Thank you so much for sending these amazing a gorgeously crafted minis Lisa it is so sweet of you..mmm sweet.. I really must find this tart to eat!!
I also wanted to show you some of the fantastical minis I got from my friend Kelly, she is always so generous and thoughtful ..oh and if you know her work she is the gal who creates mind blowing, paper clay, wondrous dollhouses in every scale...mind-blowingly awesome.
Kelly is one of the gals I have always been inspired by, she is just a amazing artist and builder of dollhouses.
Here are a few of the creations she recently sent me just to make me smile.
Kelly made this wonderful little side table with a tiny bunny underneath, some potted flowers and books to read! I love the drawer face and glass knob!
Here are a couple of the critters she makes and sells on Etsy. You can see the wonderful little dragon wrapped around a potion bottle and ...oh hippocampus!!! She is such a lovely little gal all sparkly and sweet!
Kelly knows these wonderful critters will be keeping my tower project full of life!
Thank you as always Kelly for your kindness and friendship ;)
Big hugs ladies! ~J
