The Beginning of The Fairy's Nook!

Hello my dear friends,

Finally the great day has arrived where I will be sharing with you my new project. It was so very unexpected to start this project especially after completing two projects after each other on make belief which where Santa's Work Shop and The Fairy Tale Tower. I was so sure of myself that the new project was going to be based on facts and reality. My everyday life has been so busy lately that I had to go for a small project once again, and I hope it will be the last of my small projects. I am looking forward to start working once again on bigger dolls houses with more rooms. 

I also wanted to welcome a new follower to my blog; Welcome Ruth! We have hit 70 followers! Thank you so much everyone for finding my blog interesting. It is very encouraging. 

So my new project is called The Fairy's Nook. The original kit was called The Market Cross which is a Dolls House Emporium discontinued Kit. I think it is one of the smallest kits that I have built so far. 

 This small project is going to be a garden fairy's dwelling. The upper room is where this little fairy lives and the bottom area will be transformed into a garden.

So I have gave it a dry built to see what I need to add or adapt to the kit. This building only has a small little floor door with a ladder. No doors in the walls. I didn't like the idea of having a fairy using a ladder and going in her home from underneath so an opening in one of the walls was not an option, it had to be done.

Then I started painting it. I started with all the tudor styled beam work which took me quite some time to finish. I have opened an arch door in one of the walls and painted the outer walls.

I have started by painting the outer walls with an egg shell blue color. Then I started blending in more colors. I love this technique. I have added green, orange, pink and purple. I really liked the effect. It gave it a shading of a periwinkle color. As I added an arch door opening some of the beam work had to be adapted to one of the walls. When the walls and the wooden beams have been painted I stuck the beams to the building all around. And this is how it is looking so far.

The new door opening with the adapted beam work. 

So far this is what I have completed. I hope you all like it.

Please keep tuned as I will be sharing with you more progress of this new project.

Take Care and see you soon.

  6. Oh Rebecca, I have been looking at all your work and fairy abodes and books and comments etc. I admire your dedication so much! I too am in the midst of building my dream dollhouse, "Twill have all bark and natural furniture and acorn chandeliers and many bookshelfs for my scholorly fae :} I have had to put my house away due to lack of space (my dining room table is for my fairy furniture and faieries). At one time I had an enormous Victorian house and had my own room for to create my dollhouse. It even has all glass windows and stained glass, someday I will resume my life long work on it :} You just keep creating and making your magick come alive! Blessings, Trudy Anne
