I wish this was really allowed in Tesco's...
These pictures are both created by building 3d sets from paper and then photographing them. I made all the tiny boxes and tins of food myself. Took rather a long time! Here (below) you can see them all laid out before I fixed them onto the shelves.
And these were the patterns I created and used to make all the little boxes themselves:
Cute huh? I LOVE tiny things!
In fact I thought you might be interested to see some of the images I took whilst in the halfway/quarter stages of this project.
This is the kitchen at the beginning. At this point I had only done the floor and cabinets and curtains! Looks bare doesn't it.
^but not for long!
This was the bedroom at the beginning. Bare again. That cat bed took me ages by the way. I sewed the little patchwork quilt by hand.
Also I made the wallpaper myself.
Here's the supermarket checkout in it's full glory. (that trolley was a NIGHTMARE to make!)
This was me experimenting with a sheet of rainbow colours and shining a light through it. Didn't really work how I expected though!
This is the wallpaper I made for the hallway:
And finally here are some character designs for the little girl character!
So there you go! I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the processes this project has gone through. It's been real experiment, hard at times but very enjoyable. I'm pleased with the outcome!
Also, I hope you've had a lovely weekend. Mine was spent eating Lebanese food and seeing friends in London. We went to an exhibition all about lucky charms (called Charmed Life), the National Portrait Gallery, a really good art shop (spent a bit too much in there!) and 'Foyles' the bookshop. (I love Foyles! There are always such interesting books there.)
I also had a rather dramatic Saturday morning because my mum cut her finger badly and Henry and I had to take her to hospital. But we won't go into details about that!
Love and Black Cats
p.s. I know I need to change my blog header as it's not Christmas anymore. I'm working on it!
