This quote says it all for me:
"I do not understand how anyone can live without one small place of enchantment to turn to."
My small place is my studio area in the corner of my living room. My Whimcees are all the dolls, bears and other creatures that I sew from cloth or sculpt from clay, the cards and papercraft projects that I create.
It is with this blog I hope to share my world created in my small space.
Well, here it is! My haunted house using the wonderful Graphic 45 collection called "Happy Haunting" - aren't they beautiful papers? The house took me 2 weeks of 6-12 hour days and it is ALL fussy cut and pasted on! Each little piece is hand cut and then all the edges are colored in black marker so so that it all blends in. Many of the small figures are layered so as to give them a 3-D layered look. Can you spot the little girl looking out of the window? The 2-sided moon is attached with wire so he bobbles about - isn't he great? I love this collection and owned it for a long time before I cut into the papers. I apologize for the dark photos of the house itself but if you click on the photos you can get a larger image. I also took some close ups so that you can see more detail. Enjoy!
I also made a journal with these papers and will post the photos later this weekend. Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog today! Wishing you a Happy Halloween!
Here she is - the Witch Pop-Up Doll - and she is such fun to interact with! I have many photos today but I tried to show what she could do and I had to take the photos and hold the doll at the same time. I really need a video to do her justice, but this is what I have. I hope that you enjoy! I love this doll - she is an amazing toy and perfect for story telling.
And now she needs a name! Any suggestions? She is not very big as you can see. I need to paint the stick and I might add some embellishments but I wanted to show her to you! Wishing you a happy Monday!
In these photos the witch has her hands and her clothes and she is so weary of the wait! Poor dear! She wanted her hair on and to be in her pop-up cone so she could begin to have fun hiding and scaring people! I will have photos of the completed doll on Monday. My camera takes a video but I have never taken one and have no idea how to put it on my blog if I did take one. Plus it's hard to take the video and show the interaction of the doll at the same time. I have to figure this out or just photos will have to do. :<)
Thank you for visiting my blog today! I love all of your e-mails and comments! Thank you! We have some sunshine today in this part of WI - and not too cold! Wishing you a great weekend!
