This is the harvest of today....it was the very first time I worked with Fimo!
With some help of a great tutorial of Christel Jensen and some fruit canes of Angie Scarr,
I made my very own cheesecake. I found it difficult to mix the fimo in the right dough color and give it a baked look with chalk. The color does not look very realistic in my opinion, but I will not complain......after all it is my first attempt;)
Link tutorial Christel Jensen:
First of all, I like to thank all of you for your comments on my last post! I think all your good advise will help me to protect the colors of the flowers and plants;)
As you know I was the lucky winner of Tony's giveaway! I was so thrilled to open the package when it arrived, and it even was more beautiful as a ever could imagine!!!!
Thank you again Tony, for this wonderful piece of art...it is a true treasure!
I went to the Apeldoorn fair today with my dear friend Sylvia and I had a wonderful day:))) It was nice to see a lot of old friends and met a lot of new people. I have bought a lot of miniatures and spend way to much money!
Because lack of space, I have to place the house in front of the window in my office. Unfortunately it catches a lot of sunlight which fades the colors of the tiny paper plants and flowers:( Does anyone know how I can protect the colors against the light???
I add 2 pics of the Hosta's I made and didn't show yet.
This weekend I'm going with my dearest friend Sylvia (lotjesdollhouse) to the Apeldoorn fair:) My wish list is very long, I hope to show you next week my purchases!
Ro, perhaps you allready can start making a survival kit for me this time:)))
I had to go to a meeting this morning, but my youngest had to stay home this morning because she didn't feel good, so I had to cancel the meeting.
She went back to bed and mom desided to work on some miniatures now she had some free time while her daughter was taking a nap;)
I already had something in my mind and had to move fast, to finish before she would wake;)
I told you that I'm planning to add a garden to the house in the future. For a garden you need water for the flowers! A tab was needed....I already had one tab next to the staircase, so I just copied the same for the side of the house.
Next thing I had in mind, was a table. I had an empty square make-up container and thought that it would work perfectly as a table top. I knew exactly what to use for it and the job was done in a flash;) I will use it in the future garden, for now I placed it in front of the future tea shop.
The day that I posted about my flowers, I also made 2 Hosta's...didn't show yet!
If there are people wonder, if I ever do something else than working on miniatures? Yes, I am married ( this year 20 years), I'm a mom of 2 kids, son almost 18 and daughter 10 years old, I'm running
my own (interior design) business for 6 years now and I'm doing well, I have to do all the house work myself and I like it when everything is tidy and clean, I do have to make sure there is food on the table every day( glad I love to cook) I try to go 3 times in the week to the gym, we do have a very active social live with lots of family and friends...
So NO, miniatures is not the only thing I do and NO I don't have a lot of spare time, just try to make some time in between the million things I have to do and than work as a mad woman on my miniatures;))))
I love flowers and plants, especially in the miniature scene!
There are miniaturist who are skilled in the art of making the most amazing flowers and plants and I rather would prefer to buy these!!! Though I'm not that good at making plants as a would like to be, I still have to make a great deal myself to save me some money;)
Because I have a roof terrace, balcony, three sides and probably a big garden to fill, I attempted to make a start;)
For the people who wonder how I turn on the lights without wiring....the last picture shows you the trick;) That is how I will do it in all the rooms...you just have to be clever in hiding the battery!
