Dollhouse Miniature Colorful Bouquet

I've been working on this bouquet for the longest time, in between custom orders and sorting through some postal issues that came up. I'm glad I found a solution moving forward for future packages, and finished this miniature bouquet.

I started some of these flowers before I left for my holidays, and had to pick up the momentum after I came back. The colors weren't fixed then, but I knew I wanted to make a bold, bright colored bouquet.

Many hours later, I present you "Color Burst". The veritable explosion of colors found in this bouquet is designed to light your eyes up when you see them in real person. I found myself drawn to the deep dark purples, then to the bright yellows, vibrant reds, dancing oranges and couldn't decide which were my favorite colors.

Bright colors are known to make one feel more energetic, happy and positive. Do you know of anyone around you who needs some bright colors?

I'll need to work on my next bouquet. So many colors, but perhaps I shall make something more festive..We'll see.

Have a great week everyone!

Miniature Creme Brulee Experimentation

Last night, I had to do a little experiment in preparation for another workshop this coming weekend. It happens. Sometimes I face a situation whereby a product that I use is discontinued and I can no longer find that available. So it's either I find a replacement or find a new method. And yesterday, I found a new method to make the dollhouse miniature creme brulee looking realistic.

Before I started my experiment, I had to find a miniature cup. I decided to use whatever I had on hand, that isn't plastic for this experiment. I used a UV resin cup that I made myself using this miniature cup mold sometime ago for this experiment.

Then I started my experiment. I was thrilled with my result!

Very very pleased that I could find another way to do what I needed to do, even when a supply is no longer made available. 

Will be a fun class this weekend!
