I FINALLY MADE SOMETHING MYSELF!!!


The kit of lavender was purchased in 2007 at the Miniatura in Birmingham. It was my first fair and I was overwhelmed to finally have access to so much miniatures. We had just one day, and in just one day I also had to find the best exhibitors and the nicest minis to photograph for my newly started miniature magazine: "Et Dukkehjem". I was very modest and had to fight my way in between all those eager english women standing like a firm barrier in front of the vendor!!! But I made it and I was quite pleased with the result.
Anyway, I had some time in between photographing and managed to by some stuff. This kit is from a vendor by the name; "The Miniature Garden Centre".
I don't know if I am completely happy with the result, I feel they are not real enough?
I have also played around with the Laduree label in photoshop, and this is my first attempt to print on fabric.
Visiting Christel some time before Christmas, I was lucky enough to be part of a miniature club meeting
and I made my first attempt to make one of those pitchers that you all can make so well. My first is the one at the left! The second one was a lot better, and I also made a pink one for Victoria:)
The stands were made by coincidence, just playing around!



It is the second time I rip this chair apart and change the fabric, I think this gives it a more french and right look?
Quite happy with the pillows too!!

I thought the last picture was a real house! Really nice! The pillows and lavendar look great, I specially liked the designs you made for the pillows, different and they add such a nice touch to the chair.
How do you finish the pitchers to give them the shiny look?

marcella aka milo sa...

love, love, love everything! and most of all the pitchers, so neat, and the wonderful printed pillows. Now that's a really original idea. And the last picture totally fooled me with its realism, so much that I wanted to be there. You have such good taste and a very special way to stage your treasures. Thanks for sharing!

Flora sa...

Synnøve, you made choices very sophisticated and as usual, very well.
Your house is taking a personal aspect that distinguishes it from others.
Brava!
I really like how you covered the chair and lavender is super chic.
A smile

The lavender it's good! all look nice and your chair Ooo so wonderful. Next time I make a house like that to, with light colors, greetings.

Merry Jingle sa...

Everything looks so nice, of course :D I love the chair and especially the pillows, they are fab! I just hate my printer, there's something wrong with it when printing black, so I can't try any printing on fabric. Makes me MAD.

And I like the lavenders, they look really nice :)

Great work Synnøve:) I love the chair and the little corner setting. Looks cozy

The lavendar looks perfectly fine to me. I presume you printed the blue pillows too, I like them very very very much!

Catherine sa...

It all looks wonderful Synnøve!!! I think the Lavender is very pretty and realistic. Your pitchers and stands are very, very nice. I adore the pillows!!! No one looking at the last picture would ever guess it is a miniature room. I want to go sit in that chair, eat a piece of fruit and read one of those books. Isn't it interesting how miniature room can have a warm, welcoming ambiance about it.

Irene sa...

I think you've made a lovely job of all the little items - I haven't even attempted the little jugs yet! The last picture, I agree, is so very realistic. Well done.

Lize sa...

You made lovely things Synnove! The pot of lavender also shouts: 'Vive la France!'

Its good to see you around more!

Anneke sa...

I think the lavender looks great, and so do your pitchers! very cute!
I also think the laduree pillow and the other pillows look adorable.
I know what you mean by eager people creating a barier in front of miniature stands, it's the same way at dutch dollhouse fairs, when you're too modest you'll only see backs of heads instead of any mini's at all! good to hear you had fun though!! fairs are like treasure hunting I think!
I also enjoyed your previous post very much, I'm still browsing trough the links you gave! :D

Julianna sa...

The last picture is a breath-takingly beautiful! Nice cans and pillows you have made and I like the lavender too.

kimsminiatures sa...
