It had been my hope to add to the "How To" section on a daily basis, but with the difficulty with taking pictures and manipulating small objects, this probably won't happen for a while.
On the upside, the smashed hand gets me out of a certain amount of house work which gives me more time to set up dioramas. I have several going, but am a little stuck because, while I can move (doll) furniture around, I can't do fine work like sewing curtains.
The one I'm currently working on- pictured in the projects section- is an experiment in using a focal point to design a room. The rug was what began it all. The colors-black, white, gray, and olive- became the inspiration. At first I decided to limit myself only to those colors, but when I introduced the grandfather clock, which has a red interior, I decided to add a splash of red to the room to make it pop. It is still a work in progress with many of the details still lacking, but it's halfway there. I hope you enjoy it. Let me know your opinion.
