Walls

Tomorrow would be my last day at work! I'm going on a maternity leave :)
that means I have approx. 2 month to get things done for a baby and to devote some time to myself, since when the baby is born it would be err.... harder :)
So, basically, two month of minis ( I hope :))
Here's what I've managed to make so far. The whole project is changing a bit from the initial drawing, so I'm not sure what I get as a result:) These are the walls for future roombox. It would have two walls. The only thing I need to figure out is how to protect it from dust once it's done. I'll hink about that. The walls are thick cardboard, scrapbooking paper on the inside and gypsum (plaster cast, alabaster - how does it called in english?) on the outside. That's the first time I make something with this material, so there are some wonders for me - it dries really fast! I haven't figured how to make stone-like look yet. However, I thought it would be much worse - it looks more or less allright now, when all the elements are in place. It's still wet, so I'll paint it later. The window has plasic "glass" so it's more or less real :) Here are some more photoes:

    1. да уже, реактивно:) я прям мучаюсь от того, что времени не хватает) То одно, то другое - в итоге реально по несколько часов в неделю получается выкроить, а не каждый день, как хотелось бы:)

  3. I think the outer walls of your roombox can be wonderful and very realistic when finished with paint. Have fun with it and enjoy this short periode ahead in which you will prepare yourself for the baby. I suppose you are looking forward very much to hold the little darling your arms, finally!

    1. I sure do!
      I almost do not remember what it was like, when my daughter was a newborn, so I'm really excited :)
      As for the walls, I certainly hope I won't ruin it with paint. We'll see:)

  4. Covering this lovely piece will be no problem. There are lots of transparent plastic boxes in which it can be displayed. Or, you can make your own box from peplex.
    I wish you a easy time in the coming months. Have fun.
    Hugs, Drora

    1. Thanks, Drora! I thought about covering the whole box, but with each addition it becomes bigger and bigger (Now it is also very heavy because of the gypsum :)) I think I figure something out))

  5. Oh how exciting you are pregnant. Yes you can enjoy your 2 months and do everything ready, then you will also be able to make some minis when the baby is born.
    Your Room box looks so exciting, really well made. Enjoy the work.
    Hugs

  6. Your Roombox looks fanstastic and I like how you're building up the illusion that it is situated in a real landscape with stones etc. Great job! And my best wishes for the coming months!

  8. Ciao, contraccambio la tua visita al mio blog. E' molto bello aspettare un bambino per le sensazioni che si provano mentre cresce dentro di te. Hai due mesi per dedicarti a tutto ciò che ti fa piacere! Auguri e un abbraccio. Manu

  9. Congratulations on the baby! That is a very exciting mini project. The ultimate mini! LOL! :D
    You roombox is so sweet. I like the way the exterior looks.
    Don't make too many minis. Remember to rest too. Those babies tend to not let you sleep much when they come. :)
    Thank you so much for joining my other site!!
    hugs♥,

Im a stay at home mum, my daughter is 16month now, finally I got some time for minis again ;) Hopefully she will be helping me in the future, but until then I make minis when she sleeps ;)

    1. Thanks, Hannah:)
      I can say that even witha 5 year-old it's conplicated. My daughter is very quickly bored with monotonous job so I think i got the idea:) My plan is to start needlepointing something big for the first month, so that it won't require any long preparation (unlike paint and clay).

    2. That sounds great, I started needlepointing a rug in December, I'm still working on it, its perfect when you only have a couple of minutes at the time =)
