With the floor dry, it was time to play around with the back wall of the market. To the side is a nice open space, ideal for a wizards meeting place, so I wanted the back wall to look suitably old and realistic. I deliberated over whether to have aged wood, brick or plaster and whilst pondering I rooted around for something else in the depths of my mini DIY box and found....... stone wall effect PAPER!!!!
And very realistic it is too ;0)
Now, it's not your normal dollshouse paper, it is laser printed, embossed and even looks practically 3D in real life. I bought it some time ago at Hobbeycraft in the Card Making and Embellishments section. Not that I make cards, but you can sometimes pick up some pretty or useful bits and pieces that are meant for card making, but work equally well for miniatures.
As the market is for me and will not be going on sale, it didn't matter if I cheated and used paper for my back wall and I think it suits the look I wanted for the market totally :0)
With the paper glued in place, I fitted the market stall together and left it all to dry overnight.
So now that the market stall is coming together, I have stitched a few cushions for Halloween and this got me thinking.....
Is anybody out there interested in a Halloween giveaway? I think I may be doing one next post ;0)
