tiny worlds class


Here's my tiny worlds classroom, all set up and ready to begin...


We made so many lovely tiny worlds...


Each of them so very special...


Sweet Robin made this remarkable tiny world atop an hour glass in honor of her late mother, using bits of her mother's jewelry. So beautiful.


We painted our own figures, as well as using prepainted ones.

Tiny worlds everywhere!


Can you believe the loveliness?


(Below) I love how Beth placed a tiny goose in her little lady's arms...so precious!


We switched gears in the afternoon, making shadowboxes...


Robin made this amazing shadowbox as a loving tribute to her beautiful daughter.



Beth created this shadowbox with a bit of Parisian flair. Ooolala!


Lesha's shadowbox, made for her husband.


Another of Beth's creations, made with an itty bitty wizard her daughter made.


Robin made this tiny world using one of the vintage safety pin baskets she collects as the base.


Nancy's shadowbox, made in honor of her three pets.



It was so much fun to have Marigrace and her two daughters, Anna and Abbie, in the class.



Abbie altered her spice tin to make this adorable tiny world.


Last, but not least, Carol made this amazing tribute to Her Majesty...

Indeed!

Next up, I'll show you the fun samplers we created in Sunday's class.

Love these!!!! Especially the hourglass one. Have you ever thought about selling kits for making these? For those of us poor souls who couldn't make it to your class?

I have to agree with yesterday's comment that your students work is excellent. I wasn't expecting to be so impressed but they are so interesting and charming. I am head-over-heels in love with the shadow boxes in the old tins. I might be heading to my favorite antique store for a few tins….
Question: where do you find the tiny figures and ephemera? I can never find LITTLE things let alone TINY things like what you have here.

I too am itching to make one of these! They are so charming. Where could I find the tiny people that you use for them? So wish I could attend a class. Vanessa
