A big welcome to my newest followers, Mary, Paul, Tabitha and Cris Colas. I hope you enjoy by blog and find some useful hints and tips. It's a pleasure to meet you!
The picture below shows only a few of the things I received from 2 large group swaps a while back and now reside in the Wizards Tower. My contribution was an embroidered banner (not shown) but I will do a very short tutorial on that later. I also made most of the furniture but it was the swaps that really made the tower so special.
Now, on to other things. This last week I did very little in the way of miniatures. We spent 3 day packing up my inlaws things because they moved from a condo to an apartment. But, since my mother in law no longer sews, I was given some beautiful lace, sewing supplies and some gorgeous fabric. I have already made plans to use the lace and fabric in a roombox, either a nursery or toddler's bedroom. Now, this leads to another point. As long as I have been a miniaturist, there are several things I've never done before. One is using fabric as wallpaper. I know there are probably tutorial out there, but this fabric may be on the heavy side. It's actually a linen napkin and the color is a beautiful pale pink. What type of glue should I use and should I scotch-guard it first?
Any help or advice you can give is truly appreciated.
Til next time!
