Ángeles Calvache makes amazing miniatures, and a few days ago she asked me about my address to send me a gift. When it arrived, you can imagine the enthusiasm I had while opening the package, especially because I did not expect so many things. I decided them to make a scene with similar colours to show you her present.
“Apuntando alto” y “México lindo”. Utilizar dos alturas es una forma interesante de componer, pues se pueden crear dos ambientes en un espacio muy reducido.
I made a little scene with two heights continuing the idea that I already saw you in my scenes "Aiming high" and "Mexico lindo". Using two heights is an interesting way to compose a because we can create two atmospheres in a very small space.
Después he ensamblado los tres tableros MDF y he pegado bien el cartón pluma.
I have no electric saw (since my studio set in the guest bedroom, so my tools are very basic and clean) therefore I put the window on a support foam board and then I covered with balsa wood.
Then I assembled the three MDF and glued the foam board.
Para blanquear la madera, aplicáis acrílico blanco y seguidamente retiráis el sobrante con un trapo.
I also covered the floor with balsa wood, and have applied linseed oil to avoid absorbing too much white paint.
To whiten the wood, you have to aply white acrylic and then remove the excess with a rag.
I used scrapbooking paper to lined the walls downstairs
The structure of the attic is also whited and it is supported by some pale blue beams.
The staircase is made of beech wood and it only has some linseed oil to nourish, like the desk.
Outside I made the bricks with putty and painted red, them Alkil and sprinkled talcum powder.
I painted a small table, made the mattress, added the curtains, and a wool debspread with painted polka dots.
And this is the result, with the beautifull presents of Ángeles.
The handpainted cushions, the lovely owl and the heart shaped cushion , two chandeliers, a basket, the tiny sailboat and those delicate eggs in a nest ... Thank you Ángeles, not only for your lovely present, but also for your gesture that touched me and filled with joy.
su tienda ETSY.
As I do not want to rid of these treasures, to put this scene on sale and taking into acunt that I am not good at sewing, I have been helped by the wonderful hands of Nieves Palacín which is responsible of the printed fabric cushions that you can find in her ETSY shop.
I had also the help of a talented woman, Isabel García González who made the realistic jarapa that combines with the cushions and the diary on the table.
Hugs and thank you for being there.
