I've spent the last few days working madly on a new idea with whimsical and mice still top of the listings, think that is mainly because the online groups I belong to just love these subjects.
The landscape is made of things easily obtained and put together with glue and paint to create the effects needed. Natural twigs and grasses help with the creating the look and I can never pass a railway model shop with out checking the landscaping materials.
The ivy on the back wall is made from mini punched leaves and the doorway is just card, painted, distressed and a brad for the door knob. The mice well beads and pompoms created these, not a piece of clay of any kind in sight.
I now need to make some furniture, or other pieces to bring the scenes alive and maybe one or two more plants and of course the little mice could move in too, that is of course if the fairies don't find it first.
The toadstools, well they are just brads of different sizes with rounded tops, painted and sealed and so simple to create. When dry trim the legs and insert into the scene.
I had great fun creating both scenes and the mice.
The tutorials for the scenes have been added to the Yahoo mini group Mini Allsorts and hopefully we will see some great variations when others have a go.
Enjoy mini-ing and until next time, may all be well in your world.
