I guess this challenge comes at the correct time! I have been putting off this project time and time again, but this challenge finally gave the extra push that I needed to eventually start and complete this project!

I was planning this tiered display stand out of the need to organize some of the souvenirs I have gathered from overseas. The idea to put some decor in the "supporting" glasses/vases is nothing new, but I thought to push it up a notch by creating a mini scene within the glass and finishing the entire thing with braided yarn. =)



There are 3 "layers" within the mini scene. The pond (polymer clay fish and water plant + resin), the water surface (paper boat) and land (crochet seedling + white colored mini decor stones), and finally the cloud layer which I made out of small pom poms. Smiley

Such a cute idea!  I love the scenes in the middle tower.  Makes it look like you captured a sweet fantasy world Grin

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know
