Help and Guidance from you great Blogging Friends please!!
Well Emily has caught the bug, didnt take long did it! She decided her blog would be quite eclectic, on her fashions, her designs, dressmaking , and now also on her miniature projects she wants to do so of interest to us all!
As well as some designing and dressmaking in her holidays she would like to do a mini project of her own. After thinking long and hard she has decided on a small setting, maybe room box, or just a background and floor with furniture and accessories of Gaius's chamber from the Merlin BBC programme. This a great room full of the physicians potions, spell making things, lovley tudor style furniture etc.
She loves the look of the actual whole room with balcony etc but this is far too ambitious so we figured best to start with a small setting with a table , wall cupboard and tall shelf . We are hoping to do this with a mountboard setting background with paperclay or stucco walls and floorboards. Similar to settings done by Debie in her work when she showcases her dolls i suppose. So any help with how this can be done easily would be much appreciated as she is a real newby to minis!
Today she spent ages bless her making some candles , insistent on doing it all herself with trial and error!
If you pop over to her blog you can see the setting she'd like to emulate and the types of things she would like to make. Also todays little minis she made all by herself!
As we have such talented blogging freinds we will of course buying some bits and some are ordered already as she just couldnt wait! Shes very excited so come the summer hols we will have a real hub of mini making activity as Lola will have time to work on her project and me on mine!!
Thankyou all in advance for any help you can give to her. any tips would be so great, shed love to hear from you on her blog
