Inspiration and Innovation!

Having discovered Heidi Ott and thinking life could not get any better! Now I have discovered Jiayi and Reutter - don't worry I bought some Fimo!

Currently now lusting after one of Jiayi's beautiful handpainted silk sofa sets.........!

Bought this Jiayi unit second hand - my usual Ebay!



Suitably inspired I set about a coffee table that cost £1 and painted it cream - then tried a small flower transfer - I was very impressed!
It doesn't quite live up to the wonderful workmanship of Jaiyi but sometimes innovation is called for!



This is the parlour waiting to be decorated and I found a good selection of papers in a craft book for scrapbooking - the above burgundy paper is one and I do believe it is 12th scale!


Here are a couple of the other designs - it is linen paper and I think works quite well.


Well all I have to do now is paper! So far my papering has really not been good and has been stripped off again - I am reluctant to spoil this paper!


In the meantime the dolls house stairs are still under construction!

There has been a lot of work, not by me!

I have joked about it's likeness in build time to the Forth Rd Bridge - it took a very long time.....!

  2. Hi V,
    Wallpaper is hard whether it be full scale or 1/12!!!! There is an art to it...but I'm certain you will conquer it!!
    The furnishings are lovely. You have a good eye.
