I nearly talked myself out of it but I've decided to do it - join the 2014 Undersized Urbanite Contest. I had grand plans to do an Arts & Crafts Movement house but I realise I just don't have the tools and skills yet to build a house with the spacious architectural rooms I want for the project. Therefore I have put that project on hold for now.
I am going to work with a corner unit I have on hand similar to the one I am using for the Selina Rose Gallery I am doing for my sister.
This one is a bit grubby and battered. It has been played with by my niece's two boys for the last few years. It is a good blank canvas.
What will it become? - a toy shop/toy museum combined.
The bulk of the work won't get started until later in the year because I am determined to finish my sister's gallery first. She has waited long enough.
I might make a few toys now and then though to keep the interest in the project going.
I have a good pile of magazines for research. I recently picked up this big pile of Antique Toy World Magazines (I think about 115).
I am looking forward to participating in the contest and following the other entrants projects.
I also haven't forgotten about doing a giveaway. I'm still thinking about it but it will definitely happen.
Hope all is well with everyone and you are tapping into your creative side and having fun.
Until next time...
