I know it has been a very long time since I have blogged. New job has taken a lot of my time. Trying to find balance again. I have missed miniatures so much. I hope to try to keep up. I ran across an object that I thought would be perfect for my next project. So, can you guess what I might make next with the two items?

I used skinny craft sticks. Measured out the room and began laying the sticks down on card stock paper.
I added the nail marks before I stained the floors. I think it made it look more real. I looked around at other blogs and found that someone else had done this and it looked really nice. I tried to find the blog again so I could thank them for sharing the information and give credit to them.

I have been wanting a fountain for the outside of Victoria's Farmhouse. I had tried different things but all the things I tried didn't work.
Then I found it. I looked at the shape, the size...Perfect!
Ok. It might be a little gross...LOL! I washed the plastic container, dried it. Then, painted it with a layer of gesso. Let it dry. Put a couple of layers of gray paint. Then I found a tile print cut it out the size of the bottom and then glued it down. I found a wedding decoration that would fit as a statue for the center of the fountain. I haven't finished all the details on it yet. My mom gave me a little baggie of really tiny sea shells. I put them at the bottom of the fountain.
