Frisse start / Fresh start

Na al die drukke feestdagen ben ik dan eindelijk weer begonnen met nieuwe miniaturen te maken :D!
                                         

Now the Christmas holidays are over I've finally made a start with making new miniatures :D!



Voor één van de dingen, die ik op mijn to-do lijstje heb staan, heb ik een oud verweerd stenen muurtje nodig. Na lang nadenken ben ik begonnen met het knippen van kleine baksteentjes uit een rol schuurpapier, wat ik onlangs heb gevonden bij de Action. Ik koos voor dit schuurpapier vanwege de kleur ;O.

For one of the new things on my to-do list, I do need a old weathered brick wall. After a lot of thinking I’ve started cutting out small bricks out of a roll of sanding paper, which I’ve bought at the Action-shop (cheap supermarket in The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and France). I've chosen this sanding paper because of its color ;O.



Na een poosje kwam ik erachter dat ik de verkeerde maat in mijn hoofd had! Ik knipte steentjes van 4 mm hoog en 8 mm breed, wat natuurlijk 15 mm breed moest zijn.

After a while I discovered that I was busy with cutting the wrong size! I cut small stones of 4 mm high and 8 mm wide, this had to be 15 mm wide of course!


Hier kun je het verschil goed zien. Daarna schoot het werk ook veel beter op, hahaha!
Here you can see the difference. After that, you can see that the work progressed much faster, hahaha!



Het knippen en opplakken van steentjes op dun grijs karton en het bijkleuren met acrylverf kostte me aardig wat tijd. Dit heb ik tot nu toe in twee dagen kunnen doen. Het zal nog heel wat van mijn tijd gaan kosten, vermoed ik...... ♪♫♪♫

The cutting and glueing of these brick stones on thin grey cardboard and the coloring with acrylic paint will cost me quite some time. This is what I’ve done in two days. I think it will cost quite some more of my time....... ♪♫♪♫


Weten jullie nog dat ik in november met een geheimpje bezig was? Nou, het zal nog een poosje geheim blijven, want het was voor iemand anders. Inmiddels is het veilig bij haar aangekomen, waarschijnlijk zal ze het op haar blog laten zien....als het er de tijd voor is ;)!

In November I was busy with a secret chore, do you remember? Well, it seems that it will be secret for a bit longer, because it was made for someone else. In the meantime it safely arrived at her home and probably she will show it on her blog....if it's the time for it ;)!


De eerste sneeuwklokjes in mijn tuin gaan bloeien, deze zijn voor jullie, fijn weekend allemaal :D!
The first snowdrops in my garden are in bloom, these are for you, have a nice weekend :D!

Bricks, hmm. They look fantastic when they are finished but take so much time. Happy that it is you and not me ;0P

Happy weekend!

BiWuBär zei

Woohoo - you're back to miniatures! Although it's time-consuming brickwork... but as usual you're coming up with a very clever idea. Using that sanding paper is brilliant and with your finishing touches your bricks look awesome. And about that secret project - I'm convinced that this lady will show it soon... ;O)

Hugs
Birgit

The bricks look great. Nice job!

Daydreamer zei

Oh, you have snowdrops!!!! All we have is the snow! LOL!
Right now it is VERY cold here... and plans to stay that way for days and days.... *Sigh* it will be a Long Time before we see any snowdrops... so I am happy to see yours!
As for the bricks... I thought about using sandpaper for mine.... but was concerned it would wear out my scissors! Besides, the egg cartons are easily available over here. Well, I look forward to seeing what You are building with your bricks.... you know what I am building with mine! It is fun to be sharing a task over the oceans!!!
Happy New Year!

Hi Ilona! Your brickwork is so well done and your aging of those bricks, (in both sizes,) looks spot on! :))

The brick wall looks great, just the right brick colour. I admire your patience, l am a fidget and struggle with tiny fiddly bits. The wall is going to look beautiful and really life-like, look forward to see it in place! Also look forward to hear about your secret project, love your work! Wish you a really super weekend, thank you for the lovely snow drops. Snowing here and a storm forecast over the weekend. Means creative inside-time ;). Pam xxx

Beau travail. Tu aurais pu garder les petites briques et faire un motif mélangeant les deux tailles.
merci pour la photo de perce-neige.

qué bonitas flores!!

Doug S zei

Hello Ilona!

Oh the joys of brick making! I like your idea of using sandpaper. I would not have thought of it, but it is very effective, especially after the distressing treatment you are adding. Look forward to seeing how this fits in your new project!

Doug

Kikka N zei

Love your brick stones work! It is a super fine idea to make it of the sandpaper!
Those snowdrops are gorgeus, I have newer seen them in the nature. Only in photos!

Very clever brick work! It is time consuming & either therapeutic or frustrating... :-) Either way the result is lovely and true to life. I love your touch of Spring! Looking forward to seeing more of your mini work.
Warm Hugs,

The bricks look good. Very time consuming but knowing you they will be perfect for your project.
I look forward to see your secret chore.
The snowdrops are lovely. We don't
have them here since it seldom snows.
Thank you for sharing the photo. It's
a very beautiful flower arrangement.
Hugs, Drora

Que suerte con el tono de lija, así con un toque quedan preciosas las paredes.

Las campanillas son maravillosas.

Oh my your patience on this is so wonderful I am afraid I would go quite mad laying all those tiny pieces. Of course the effort is making it look AMAZING. I wonder what eye candy you have in store ???hummmmmmm?

Tatiana zei

Привет Илона!
Уже новый проект! Это замечательно! Мне нравится ваша идея! Не расстраивайтесь! Маленькие кирпичи всегда пригодятся в миниатюре. Я лепила кота вчера. Так вот! У него голова получилось в два раза больше Как?? Пришлось ее подрезать со всех сторон!:) :) :)
Подснежники-это чудо природы! Кругом снег, а они уже здороваются с нами!
Обнимаю
Татьяна

Piikko zei

What!? You have flowers in your garden!
Well, you have snowdrops and we have...SNOW!:D
-What a great idea to make bricks from sand paper. Some of my minifriends used black sandpaper to make roof to their market stalls.
-Have great week Ilona! :)

Mini Southern Millworks zei

Now i can't wait to get in my shop and build Ilona.


Thank you for sharing.
