ATM Make

I belong to a great group called All Things Mini  In the forums there I signed up for a project called the MAKE.  For this MAKE we were given the theme "little shop of ________"  For my MAKE I did "little shop of fortune".  We were to make everything in the project ourselves.  I cheated a little on mine because I bashed a Michaels hutch for part of my display and I used some glass bottles- but everything else I made- including my very first 1/12 scale (almost-lol) doll!!  I am so proud of her- she's a little rough because I didn't use a mold, but I thought it made her look more like a wise old fortune teller.  I used Glenda's tips (from Peppercorn Minis) on doing her hair and it worked so great- thank you Glenda!  I have healing crystals hanging in the corner for sale and a variety of candles, potions, and incense on the shelves to help tell your own fortune.  There's also herbs for sale on the bottom shelf :)  I'm so happy the person I sent this to liked it- it was fun to create.  I'm joining in the MAKE again next year for sure!

Oh I love your doll. I don't think I will ever try one! I'm just way too scared! I like the theme, too. Everything is just wonderful!
Hugs,

Fantastic job on the doll! I'm impressed. I love the colours you used too, especially on the outfit. The whole thing looks like it was a lot of work.

The hutch is amazing, Kim. You did a wonderful job on the tiny fortune teller doll. These things are just so cute.

Did you send the whole tableau including the doll, table and hutch for the ATM Make - or just the hutch? Either way, anyone would be delighted to receive it.

Kim said...

Thanks all!! Lainie- if I can make a doll I think you can too. It took a couple re-starts to make this gal and she's still not "pretty" :)

Eileen, I sent the entire box- so everything you see in the little room including the room went flying in the mail to my partner :) It was fun to make this- but I've been slowly working on it since about April :)

Oh Kim, your doll is wonderful, she really brings the scene to life! As always, you have such good ideas.

I can't believe I wasn't already following your blog! What was the matter with me?!?!
I can see why Christina was so delighted! What a fantastic character in an equally wonderful scene! Way to go Kim!

Is a great work, I like very much all details, and the dress of the doll is fantastic! hugs

Zlatica said...

You are an artist, Kim!!!
I love all your scene but the doll is a superstar!
I don´t know a lot about the mini world - how is the doll tall? What does it mean "1/12 scale"?
Have a lovely weekend!

WOW!!! A doll!!! With a matching dress as the table! You cracked me up, girl! And what a fabulous job :). :):)

ShellbyFay said...

I LOVE this! What a fab idea as well. Sounds like great fun, the group you've joined. I already can't wait to see what you have to do next year!!! Haha

P.s. - your doll is amazing and suits the scene too well! :D

How wonderful! Love the doll and your idea for your room. Where do I sign up for my fortune to be read?

Kim said...

Thank you everyone so much- I was so nervous that I had not done enough for this swap so I'm really pleased that people like it ♥ Zlatica--1/12 scale means that 1 inch is equal to 12 inches in real life. I think my doll was probably about 5 inches high- not positive because I think I got a little bigger than I was supposed to when I made the body- so that means in real life she would be 5 feet tall--or a little taller if I accidentally increased her size as I made her body :) I want to try another doll, but I promised myself that I would clean the craft room and do some last minute pre-winter garden chores first :)
