    New Miniatures, New Fairy Artwork & Related New Sale!

    New Artwork: Half Scale Fairy House by Shannon Cooper!

    This is sooo fabulous! Design Team Member Shannon Cooper has made a teeny, tiny fairy house (that new corner room box is just 6″ wide)!

    And see that little picnic basket in the lower right corner of the photo grid? It’s just 1″ wide!

    From Shannon’s blog post:

    Have you seen the new Half Scale Tall Corner Room Box? It is a wee thing measuring just 6″ tall x 6″ wide x 4″ deep. A perfect size that doesn’t take up too much space. Will it become a pint-sized Christmas scene with a decorated tree? A minute library that fits in your hand? I almost want to upholster another chaise lounge and make an elegant sitting room (and then fill it with cats). So many tiny possibilities! If that doesn’t have you grinning ear to ear, there’s a second Square Half Scale Corner Room Box that’s even smaller! I know, right? Deep breaths!

    After my excitement ebbed a little, I decided to turn the room box into a house fit for a fairy. It seemed appropriate.

    This whole project actually started with the new half scale versions of the rectangular bay windows (the bigger ones are the ones from Laura Carson’s Streets of Paris project)… then the house and the room box for the house kind of grew up around the window!

    Beside these photos of Shannon’s project, there’s another photo down in the Giveaway section, where you can enter to win lots of supplies from Shannon’s supply list! And be sure to visit Shannon’s blog for more photos and tips (like that shabby white buffet — just chipboard and twigs)!

      I have a medium and small ivy punch, silk crepe paper, and 33 gauge wire that I could use to make ivy to run up the sides of the window. Then inside, I would make tiny cakes and sweets out of polymer clay. I have some thin acetate that would be perfect to make the “clay” for the panes.

    59. Mary Warren Says:

      I love the teeny utensils! If I were to make this I would definitely want a teeny fairy peeking out of a window! Beautiful.

    60. Shannon Marie Svensson Says:

      The elves at my house love your work, Shannon !

    61. Karen S Says:
