Quarter Scale Whimsy House
I just received a 1/4 scale version of the newly named "Baslow Ranch" house in the mail from Greenleaf as a thank you for entering their contest. It's the first time I've worked in this scale and I wasn't quite sure what I would do with it at first. The thought of recreating my Orange Blossom in that scale crossed my mind but working that tiny?? I was exhausted just thinking about it! So I just decided to do a collage effect using papers that simply make me happy! The words printed on one of the papers are all places and things from my childhood and there are a few daisies sprinkled throughout so this is personal and pretty for me even if it's a tad unorthodox! :) I think I'll still add the porch and maybe some cut-outs of furniture inspired by wonderful vintage lithographed houses like the Bliss houses. This little-bitty house will go on my desk at work just to make me smile.
