Everything about miniature worlds fascinates me. Wether in Disney movies, in children’s books, in fairytales for grownups or in whimsical glass jars terrariums, I could spend hours watching them and imagining complicated, Alice in Wonderland like scenarios.
So as we went at the flea market again last Saturday, I considered finding a basket full of these miniature wonderful critters to be a sign:)
It’s been so long now since I’ve been wanting to create dioramas, either as a terrarium or as a world in a shadow box!
Now I have to gather more supplies…twigs, acorns, some dried flowers maybe. I already have fake moss, acorn caps and some really beautiful, mysterious rocks from Iceland.
I’m thinking I could have different themes for the dioramas, like maybe a farm, then a woodland scenario with those cute bunnies:)
Definitely a cat&yarn thing scene, a water and rocks scene with the little green plastic flowers and the stork and some playful, vintage style child’s room with those adorable puppies:).
I really love those mininature forest themed terrariums in recycled jars, so maybe I will start with one of those and add some clay mini toadstools too.
Among other goodies hidden in an old basket, I had found these vintage wooden stamps, one with a family of penguins and one with a group of cute rabbits. Both in very good condition and for only 50 euro cents each! There was a nice paper corner punch for the same price and I could not leave it behind so I’ve got it for the same price as the stamps. You can see the small corner motif near the stamped rabbits:) They seem to like it very much!
What other stuff would you use as terrarium or diorama supplies? I would love to hear about it:)
