    New miniatures! New Moroccan artwork! Baking SALE!

    Filed under Art Projects, Bella Ayers, Giveaways, Miniatures, Moroccan Doorways Kit, Sale

    Before showing off Miz Bella’s beautiful artwork using the April Kit (goodby April… the longest month in the history of months): there’s a BAKING sale! Why? Well, first there are 2 adorable new miniatures with a baking theme. Second, I have been seeing photos of amazing things people are baking (you too? do tell in your comment if you enter the Giveaway). More info on the sale and all the new miniatures is below.

    Wow! I love all the color and textures in this Moroccan Nights by Design Team Coordinator Miz Bella (Kimberly Ayers)! That photo at right shows the inside when the piece is open (and note the depth from the niche on the right side, behind the Moonshine Frame). There’s also a niche behind the scene on the front cover!

    Per the work-in-progress photos below, you can see how Bella hinged the main house pieces. For the front cover she built her own frame using curtains, a valance (at bottom) and a dome on top, doing double duty to hide some hot-glue mayhem from making those tulle curtains. (See how the niches are offset in the side-view photo? The niche on the front cover (with the curtains and dancing girl — what? dancing girl? see photo in the Giveaway) is lower than the niche on the inside.)

    Clever work, Bella!

    You read more about the project and see more photos on her blog post. Plus here’s Bella’s supply list.

    Moroccan Nights Giveaway!

    Ah… there’s that photo of the cover! That makes more sense (I hope). Bella built her little stage for the dancer and added the curtains with filigree as tie-backs, plus glitter edging the onion dome and the Stained Glass Border.

    So much to choose from: see the photos below of the 3 collage with the lovely ladies on the cover and on the inside. EVERYTHING in Bella’s Supply List is included in today’s Giveaway! (That’s a huge list!)
