Wanna see inside Storybook?
She's not finished, but I think done enough to give you a sneak peek.
Here we are looking from the outside in through the picture window.... it's a little living room with a loft library upstairs.
I think there might be a party going on....but, haven't decided what kind of party it will be.
So, I'll think more about that as I share what I have finished so far.
It took me the longest time to figure out what the color scheme would be.
Walking by the scrapbook section at the craft store, one piece of paper caught my eye and the "inspiration" decision was made.
Then it was time to head to the fabric section and coordinate the color scheme.
I haven't finished (or started) the pillows....all the fabric is just wrapped around the forms...I'm way to anxious to see what everything will look like.
Do you do that too?
The top picture behind the little ladder is the scrapbook paper cut and framed.
The curtains caused me some grief!
Made them once, hung them up thinking I was finished....NOT!
So, today they came down and got "redone".
The wicker furniture I've had for years....it never really had a perfect home until it found it's way into Storybook.
I made the dresser (a kit) eons ago...and, guess what?
It fits like a glove in it's new home.
The CHANDY was a challenge at first....then I got the hang of twisting and bending wire, stringing the beads for light (I'm pretending it works...hehehe), wrapping white paper to imitate the candle, draping the chain with hanging tear drop pearls.
The flowers were added to cover up all the "unsightly" wires.
I didn't address everything going on in the cottage....
If you have any questions, please ask away... I'm happy to share any of my ideas, tricks, mistakes, do's and don'ts...or successes!
It's all a learning process to be passed on.
Storybook is making me very happy....
HAPPY DANCE time.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit..... and a BIG THANK YOU to all my new followers!
Have a fantastic mini making week.
