Country Photos – Part 2

Okay! This batch is the pictures I took of the two Traditionals who came with me, River and Peggy. River came because she hasn’t been anywhere before, and Peggy came as I was pretty sure she hadn’t been on a trip before, or at least to the country.

I really love these flowers, they’re almost in the right scale for models too!

I think my favourite picture of this shoot is this last one. I love the contrasts of the rich pink in the background with the black of Peggy and the yellow of the flowers near her. I should make something with this colour scheme…

What’s your favourite picture? Any ideas on what I could make?

See ya!

Country Photos – Part 1

Over the last few days, I went to the country with my grandparents and these are some of the pictures I took of my Schleichs. This particular country town is known for its gardens, so most of them were in a garden of sorts.

We found an owl ornament in one of the gardens, and Ebony was confused.

We also found an old tractor seat, which had been put on a pole as a feature.

Vogue shots. I’ve long had an image of something similar to this in my head, a beautiful stallion (or mare) under some pink/purple flowers in a cobblestone courtyard so I was quite excited to find this little nook of the garden.

Anyways, see ya!

Sharpie Mugs

I thought I could run wild with all the things you can put on a miniature Sharpie mug, so I made 4, and they’re almost addictive.

I really like the little hoofprints on this mug.

I was trying out different colours on this mug, and I like the finishing flair the loopy underline gives it.

Obviously we had to have something fandom.

They’re all coated with clear nail polish to make them look like enamel, but it stank while I was putting the coats on.

Doing some deep thinking over the morning cuppa, I see. That is a new backdrop, it’s just the window and a white corner so I probably won’t do a whole post about it, but it’ll turn up in the future. I intended it to be a basic, stick-it-behind-anything backdrop and the window adds interest to an otherwise very boring white piece of cardboard.

See ya!

By Candlelight

I was working on several different projects that required my hot glue gun, and I had the bright idea to whip up a few candles while it was on.

You can’t really see them here as they are clear and the background’s white, but you can see them much better in Ollivanders.

They light up the (messy) workspace quite well, if I could put flames into the pictures.

The wick is a piece of wire, which doesn’t look the most realistic but hey, I couldn’t remember what was actually used in the original tutorial. (For the record: it was black beading wire. I was close!)

I guess they can’t exactly turn out badly, because there’s no real wrong way to drizzle hot glue.

Anyways, see ya!

Smaller Coffees

I made Sarah a cup of coffee, to finish off the hipster New Yorker look. However, the printable came with eight cups, and I only needed one.

img_9537_1

I thought it would be a shame to waste the printable, so I made all the cups.

img_9531_1

I tried coffee art, but I might need a bit of practice before I become a barista. 😀

The coffee art was done with paint, but the instructions said to use nail polish, so that may have something to do with it. Oh well.

img_9536_1

I reckon the look is complete. However, those extra cups need somewhere to go, so I might need to make a coffee shop backdrop… hmm.

See ya!
