I'm starting a new project ;-)
Some years ago I bought a book....
Written and illustrated by Colin Thompson.
I love the cover of this book...
In the books are windows and doors
and there's a lot to see in Colin Thompson's drawings!
I always wanted to make something like this in miniature
and finally I started!
It will not be a true copy of the cover,
but I want to try to capture the atmosphere.
This is the box in which I will be making this project.
I already have some books,
but still need more!
Yesterday I started preparing one book.
I already made the hole for a window!
Still lots of work to do :-)
Hugs, Margriet

Wat geweldig leuk Margriet. Ik vind de boeken van Colin Thompson prachtig getekend. Hoop dat je de sfeer van de tekening in je project kunt vangen. Heel veel succes.

Groetjes, AnneRie.

OMG! I must find that book! Just for the cover :). I once copies a picture online that's similar to this but prefer your book cover. I think it is a great project, Margriet and I can't wait to read more about your progress

Hoi Margriet, dit is een hele uitdaging, maar een giga leuk idee!! Het zal me benieuwen wat het wordt :D! Wat voor schaal gebruik je hiervoor?
Groetjes, Ilona

Margriet said...

Thank you all for your enthusiastic comments :-)
bedankt voor alle enthousiaste reacties! :-)

Sans, inside the book are even moren wonderful drawings!!! I really love this book :-)

I just bought some more old books, just need 1 or 2 more!

Ilona, ik gebruik niet echt een schaal, ga gewoon op gevoel werken. Maar het huisje wat er in staat is 1:48.
