Well, last night's book wasn't that engrossing so I worked on some more pieces for the scrapbooking vignette.
First I made this laptop computer from Jim Collins' website. As usual, I glued a nickel inside to give it some weight. I can see from the picture that I need to touch up some edges with black marker.
Then I decided to make a pegboard/bulletin board for above the table. The pegboard will be from matboard and the cork is from Lee Valley. (It's only 1/16" thick.)
I went to http://incompetech.com/graphpaper/ and chose a dot square graph paper with 8 dots to the inch (12 would have been scale but looked just to small).
I cut a small piece of the graph paper and taped it to the matboard
How time flies when you're searching the internet! I found some shape templates and a square that I sized and printed on a transparency. Also, some Cricut mats, scrapbooking scissors and cutting mat and a box of calligraphy pens.
Fellow MEE members Janeen called and Barb e-mailed to give me the measurements for a Fiskars border punch so I sized a picture of one and printed out a bunch of the pictures. I'm going to try a paper tole effect to make one in mini.
I had a major panic moment when I realized that I didn't have enough of the trim to finish the border around the pegboard/bulletin board. Liz of Grandpa's Dollhouse is trying to find me more as I also need it for the Christmas shop. I was on the phone to my sister when I found that little 1" piece on the couch so if I'm VERY careful with my mitering, I may just barely have enough....I hope...
I've only cut out one pair of the scrapbooking scissors so far. They're a pain to cut but with the edges coloured, they should look okay hanging from the pegboard.
Wanted to have a Cricut in the scene but didn't quite feel up to miniaturizing the actual machine (considered it LOL but not for long) so I hope to have the box sitting on a shelf. So I just spoke with DS Shirley and asked her to take some pictures of her Cricut box for me....and she will so should be able to get one more thing done.
