Last year I joined the I <3 Valentine's swap and had the lovely edelC as my partner. I started a project for her but decided to switch to something else before I'd completed it. I thought I would keep the other little thing for my own trinket shelf but every time I looked at it with the intention of working on it, it very plainly said to me "No, I am not for you." until I finally figured I had better finish it and send it to Edel, the person it has belonged with all along.


The girl is black shrink plastic, I found images of silhouettes online and copied the one I liked best. Her balloon is shaped from very fine wire, the balloon itself is nail polish. Set inside a mini bell jar, I think Tim Holtz, with some miniature scene fake grass, both from Michael's. I got the man to take the kids to the beach and fetch back some beach sand which is what the path she is standing on is made of, a little piece of Hamilton Ontario lives in Ireland now Smiley.




LadybugsAndBumblebees and I did a personal swap recently and I sent her a little something for the members of her family. She said her son was difficult to make gifts for but she had something similar to this in her pinterest for him.


It's air dry clay painted with acrylics, the grass is the same sort used for mini scenes, the bell jar also from Tim Holtz.


It was difficult to get a good photo of something so tiny but I really liked the results and was happy with how it turned out. I hope he will enjoy it too.

Cool!
I love minis, am fascinated by stuff in bell jars, and adore silhouettes.  Trifecta!

Trifecta!

LOL! Awesome word!

The little jars are wee but they came in a package of 4 and those are the larger size. For comparison you can see the smaller ones (filled with sparkly eyeballs & teensy gnomes) here and here.
