1:12 Scale Flower Arrangement Books

Beginning of last week, while waiting for my new workstation to arrive and in the midst of packing and cleaning my room, I started another project making these 1:12 scale flower arrangement books. It was really fun for me seeing these books being created in 1:12 scale. I found a little container to hold the mini books that I was cranking out. Why flower books? I don't really know except for the fact that their covers attracted me a whole lot, and the colours are so bright and pretty that I can't resist! In total, I made about 20 over books (all different covers), and I have mailed out a few as freebies along with the sales orders I received last week! :)

There really is no special technique for making these books, and all you need are good resolution pictures, and being able to print them out in best quality as you shrink them down. Strangely though, I find it rather therapeutic creating these lovely books... that's why I ended up with that many :)

Just yesterday, or was it a day before, I posted on my Facebook Fan Page asking my fans to guess what kind of books I'm creating...just for fun and some interaction. Hehe. Cookbooks, journals, craftbooks, gardening books were some guesses. I'm going to try to see if I can find any of those in a style I like. ;)

Off to creating more.

I have some listed in my ArtFire store for sale. http://www.artfire.com/users/miniaturepatisserie

I'm open for trade too, if you like them. I'm actually looking for some dollhouse kitchen utensils, so if you are interested, drop me a comment with your contact, we can work something out.

Lovely work.
I do like making printies. At the end of a session it is possible to feel a sense of real achievement.
