HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!! I hope everyone is enjoying a little love!!! Last year I tried my hand at some miniature baking and thought I would share it with you. I made the little cake stand and hand painted it. I was experimenting with frosting on the cake and decided to use some "spackle" which makes the cake look really home made!! LOL There is also a platter of heart cookies!
When I first started trying my hand at making something in miniature(before sculpting) I came up with an idea of making a perfume shelf. I had so much fun putting this together even if I didn't know exactly what I was doing! As you can see I didn't use wood glue which was a big mistake. The wood on the back side has split over the years. I didn't realize either that you shouldn't really have a piece like this too glossy or it will not look right. I added a few images that I decoupaged and really loved how that turned out!! I have learned so much since this first attempt! Thank goodness!!! This piece is what began my addiction to miniatures!!! My obsession is still growing!!
This little girl ended up looking very tired to me! Looks like the poor thing had a long day at school! Up too early and hard work all day! She moved to Austrailia awhile ago! I made the small doll for her and her cookie too!
I am the Mother of one daughter and an artist that has become madly passionate about anything miniature. I love collecting other artist's work and sharing mine. I am still in the process of learning about EVERYTHING! THANK YOU everyone for all of the inspiration that you give and for the sharing
