Het is geelgroen en het fladdert / It is yellow green and it flutters


Gisteren hadden we een klein voorproefje op de lente, een graad of 14-15 oC én heerlijke zonneschijn. Terwijl ik in de tuin mijn voorjaarbloemen (sneeuwklokjes, krokussen) bekeek, fladderde er iets vlak langs mij heen: de eerste citroenvlinder, http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citroenvlinder :D!! 
Hemeltje, ik hoop niet dat die zich vergist heeft ;)!


Yesterday we had a little foretaste of spring here in The Netherlands, it was about 14-15 oC and lovely sunshine. While I was in the garden looking at my spring flowers (snowdrops, crocuses), there was fluttering something around me: the first Brimstone, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gonepteryx_rhamni
Oh dear, I hope it wasn’t a mistake of this butterfly ;)!

Miniatuur bloemen maken is momenteel nog niet echt een favoriete bezigheid met mijn hoest (ja, die is er nog steeds :( ), dus ben ik inmiddels met wat andere dingen bezig.

 At the moment I can’t make miniature flowers, because of my coughing (yes, the cough is still here :( ), so I am now busy with some other things.


Een poosje geleden heb ik van Fimo klei een ander loopwagentje gemaakt voor mijn peuter.

 A while ago I have made another baby walker of Fimo clay for my toddler.



Ze vindt het erg leuk om met het dashboard van haar loopwagentje te spelen.

She really loves to play with the dashboard of her baby walker.


Ik heb geprobeerd om alle details op het dash board te maken van klei, waarna ik een impressie van alle nóg  kleinere details erop geschilderd heb met acrylverf. Het moet nog gevernist worden, maar ik heb vanwege de schittering eerst een foto ervan gemaakt. 
Aan de 16 mm grote 1-eurocent kun je zien hoe klein de details op het dashboard zijn.

I tried to make all the details on the dashboard out of fimo clay and after that I have painted an impression of all the even more smaller details with acrylic paint. It has to be varnished yet, but I have first taken a picture, because otherwise there will be a glare after the varnishing. 
Looking at the 16 mm 1-euro cent you can see how small the details on the dashboard are.


Bedankt allemaal voor jullie reacties/goede wensen n.a.v. mijn vorige blog post! Een warm welkom aan mijn nieuwe volgers en aangezien ik nog steeds niet 'hoestvrij’ ben, heb ik helaas nog niets aan mijn giveaway kunnen doen.
Je kunt nog steeds meedoen aan mijn giveaway, zie mijn vorige blogpost:
Allemaal een fijne week toegewenst!

I thank you all for your comments/good wishes on my last blog post! A warm welcome to my new followers and since I am still coughing, I unfortunately couldn’t do something to my giveaway.
You still can participate on my giveaway, see my previous blog post
I wish you all a nice week!

Ilona

First treat your cough (for mini flowers is not very convenient to be a cold)
Trotter and steering wheel are really successful (it is very small) and your always adorable little girl
that pretty green butterfly (is it a Martian?) :-)
good evening

Xandra Dekker zei

Vervelend Ilona dat je nog steeds zo hoest. Ik hoop dat er snel verbetering voor je komt. Je loopwagentje en dash board zijn weer geweldig goed gelukt.

Dear Ilona,
You do such fine work, and so tiny..
I am sorry to hear you are still coughing. I hope you are better soon.

Thank you for you visit and kind words. As to your question about needle felting over a wire armature. Good question!

As you can see in one of the photos, I wrap the wire with yarn, then wrap wool around and then I start needle felting.
I start going very slow and careful so as to not hit the wire with the needle... Once I have built it up a little, I can go faster.. Not to say that I have never broke a needle.. I have broke a few over the years, but I just pull it out and get another felting needle..
I hope this answers your question dear Ilona..
I will say a prayer that you are well soon.
blessings,
Penny

Susan zei

I hope the butterfly means warm spring days stay with you and help your cough clear up. You haven't wasted your time! The dashboard and baby walker are brilliant!

BiWuBär zei

It's brown with a green and red scarf and it flutters... and it will be nagging me saying "But I wanted to send Ilona that healthy bonbon for her recovery and you said it would take too long"... *sigh* I'm sorry to hear you're still coughing - I keep my fingers crossed for a recovery faster than a ray of light now. Your newest toy miniature looks impressive as always, your toddler can be glad to have you as her master supplier! ;O)

Hugs
Birgit

The grandmommy zei

When I first looked at it I had no idea it was fimo. Your details are really on target!

Daydreamer zei

Ilona, you are a Magician with the Fimo clay! The little walker toy is unbelievable! Your little toddler looks happy playing with it!
I hope your cough gets better soon... it is no fun to be sick... and keeps you from making perfect flowers! :(
As for the butterfly.... they must know when to come out.... Spring is almost here... well, not HERE... it is still Very Cold over here!

Coucou Ilona!
C'est tout "mimi", c'est tout joli!
Les microbes ont l'air de voyager par internet...Je suis aussi dans la fimo, c'est moins risqué en cas de gros éternuements! Lol!
Ici il fait 39° toute la journée...

Hairy Caveman zei

Hi Ilona! Wow, that baby walker and dashboard are so tiny and so cute! The amount of detail you have got on there is amazing, so colorful too!
A measuring rule with inches on it? You must have got that from England!
Kind regards, Brian.

SaMiRa73 zei

Hi Ilona! The baby walker is unbelievable! All those tiny painted details - did you use a loup light for them??? We have the same weather here and spend the afternoons outside enjoying the sun and fresh air :-) Spring - we are ready for you!!!
Hugs, Sandra

thegreatzambini.com zei

The walker is so cute! It has such tiny details... beautiful!

Rosethé zei

il est bizarre cet insecte !
Le petit trotteur est superbe, les détails de la tablette sont très joliment faits. Prenez soin de vous Ilona !
Amicalement. rosethé

Paula zei

Wat een enig loopwagentje heb je gemaakt. ik zie er helemaal de Fisher-Price karretjes in waar ik vroeger zo'n hekel aan had omdat het er zo nepperig uitzag.
Het is inderdaad beter om even te wachten met bloemen maken als je zo hoest of je moet een mondlapje voor doen.....
Ik hoop voor je dat het snel overgaat!

Groeten van Paula

Hannah zei

Angelsdoor * Penny zei

How sweet of you to come over to see the mini Anita.. I truly enjoyed making her, and I know she will be loved. Your words are too kind, but thank you so much.
I am so happy you were able to visit ~Nowhere~ a place that we play and just have fun with our art and words... I laughed myself silly over the banter between Rattus and Tea Rat.
blessings,
Penny

Lindsey Domer zei

Another phenomenal clay toy from you! Your skills never cease to amaze me! :)

Eva - tatalamaru zei

Te ha quedado muy bonito el andador. Deseo que te mejores pronto, yo también estuve mucho tiempo con tos, pero por suerte ya pasó. Cuidate y un beso

Cinderella Moments zei

Coughing is very bad for mini making. I hope it leaves very quickly. I'm feeling better. I'm off my crutches! Still limping though. 'I love the baby toy. I'm always amazed by how you can make it look so perfect.
It's cold here in Texas. We even had ice fall and coat the roads Sunday. The day before it was hot and I was wearing shorts. That's Texas! :)
hugs♥,
Caroline

Andrea Thieck zei

This is great! As you know, I normally prefer old fashioned toys, but you really did a great job with this baby walker. I like it a lot.

Drora's minimundo zei

Dear Ilona, I'm sure the cough already left you. I had to deal with mine for weeks and it's definitely bad for flower making with petals and leaves flying around every time you sneeze or cough.
The walker and dashboard are a work of art. Unbelievable tiny. I love them as much as the adorable toddler does.
Hugs, Drora
