Blauw wit / Blue white


In de afgelopen weken had ik niet veel tijd om miniaturen te maken, het echte leven zat me behoorlijk dwars. Daarnaast ben ik toch aan het ‘oefenen’ geweest om tulpen in de schaal 1:24 te maken, pfiew, wat een gefriemel is dat, zeg! En als je zo klein werkt, is de kans op verlies van de details, die kenmerkend zijn voor (in dit geval) tulpen, erg groot…..dus blijf ik oefenen, oefenen en nog eens oefenen ;)!

In these last few weeks real life got me in the way and I didn’t have much time for making miniatures. Beside that, I still was ‘practising’ for making tulips in scale 1:24 (is that half scale in English?), phew, what a finicking work was that! And if you are working that tiny, the chance of losing the most characteristic details for tulips (in this case) is very plausible….so I'm still practising, practising and again practising ;)!


Ik had niet eens een klein vaasje voor deze tulpjes, ze staan dan ook in een 1:12 bloemenvaas van 2 cm hoog J!
De acryl vaas is gemaakt door Gerrit van Werven:

I didn’t have a small vase for these tiny tulips, they are in a 1:12 scale flower vase of 2 cm high J!
The acrylic vase is made by Gerrit van Werven: 

Vorig jaar kreeg ik een e-mail met een vraag over de schoentjes van het popje Daisy. Ze had All Stars gympjes aan en de vraag was of ik ze ook los van de voetjes kon maken. Toen had ik er geen tijd voor, maar in de afgelopen maand heb ik het toch eens geprobeerd. Dit is het resultaat:

Last year I received an email of someone, who asked me if I could make her a pair of loose shoes, just like the doll Daisy was wearing at her feet. At that time I didn’thave the time to give it a try, but this last month I’ve tried to make these tiny shoes. This is the result:


Maar helemaal tevreden ben ik er nog niet over….
Zoals je kunt zien zijn ze 15-16 mm groot, wat betekent dat deze schoentjes voor (echte) kinderen van ongeveer 2-3 jaar oud zijn.

 But still I’m not quite satisfied about them….
As you can see these shoes measure about 15-16 mm, what means that these shoes are for (RL) kids of about 2-3 years old.


Eén schoentje maken is één ding, maar om de tweede goed én gespiegeld te maken, dat is andere koek. Dus blijf ik nog veel oefenen :D!

Making a shoe for a right foot is quite a job, but making a well mirrored left shoe, that’s another thing. So I still have to practise a lot :D! 


Ik vind het leuk om de schoentjes een  ‘gebruikte’ look te geven, dus de zool is een beetje ‘vies’ ;)!
I like to give these shoes a used look, so the soles are a bit ‘dirty’ ;)!



De lente is volop aan de gang, mijn bloementuin wordt al behoorlijk wakker: vergeet-mij-nietjes en witte druifjes, óók mooi blauw en wit :D!
Fijne week allemaal!

Spring is in full swing here in The Netherlands, my flower garden is wide awake: forget-me-nots and white grape hyacinths, nicely blue and white too :D!
Wishing you all a lovely week!

Ilona

Susan@minicrochetmad zei

Ilona, the little shoes are just darling, so perfect! Half scale tulips, unbelievable, like real tulips in a Giants vase. You are truly a gifted artist.

Elizabeth S zei

Hi Ilona! I LOVE the blue sneakers and you have made them Perfect by making them a bit dirty on the soles! Love that kind of detail :D
Also your tulips are so delicate and I can just imagine the extra time it takes to make something extra small but the results are worth every minute; they are Beautiful! :D

p.s. the vase is Gorgeous and what a great piece to have in your collection! :D

The grandmommy zei

Your tulips are so pretty, especially in white! The shoes are adorable. I could see the little child in the garden with mom while she is picking the tulips!
I would love to visit the Netherlands one day. I see it as full of pretty flowers!

Vivian Fox zei

Hi Ilona
Your little tulips are beautiful. Yes, 1:24 is half scale... and as for the little shoes, complete with mud - they are simply adorable. Everything looks perfect to me, but I know you are a perfectionist and your own worst critic :) Beautiful work Ilona, you are a star!
All the best
Vivian

Bravo Ilona... this was a good one! Practise *wipes-away-tears-of-laughter* Really... I don't see any improvements possible - your tiny tulips (incredible in that scale) and those darling little shoes are perfect. Wonderful work... as always (hmmm... I have a strange feeling I might have written something like this before... and before... *LOL*)

Have a great week! :)

Maria Ireland zei

Wow Ilona I love the wonderful adorable shoes. Your tulips are amazing and even more amazing in this tiny scale. Lol Ilona I think you have been practising these for years :D Perfect work. Beautiful spring flowers.
Hugs Maria

Pippibär zei

I really really love forgot-me-nots, but in this post I only have eyes for this tiny super realistic shoes. Perfect, as usual...
the tulips in 1:24... oh I can understand you so good. I try this time to make flowers and a garden bench for the Etsy photos of my mini-bears... and they ARE 1:24... and this is really tiny!... and my fingers are really thick and not tender enough for such a tiny work. I wish my results would look just as half so wonderful as yours.
Hugs

Veilchen zei

Hallo Ilona,
die winzigen Turnschuhe sind ganz wundervoll und detailgetreu geworden. Ich liebe die vielen Kleinigkeiten, den Sternaufnäher und den Schriftzug an der Sohle.
Die Tulpen sind zwar größer als sie es wollten, aber für diese Vase wie geschaffen. Ich mag die blau-weiße Kombination.
Liebe Grüße Veilchen

Jane Smith zei

Oh my, I am in love with the flowers and the scale is just a thumping my heart! <3

Always such fine work!

Daydreamer zei

Dear Ilona, you are Amazing!!! (Have I said that before??? LOL!)
Those tiny shoes are So adorable! I have not made shoes yet, and would not have thought how difficult it is to get two to looks just right... or one to look "right" and one to look "left" (hee hee)! I think you have done very well, and have even thought to make them look worn!
As for the tulips... I did not realize at first that they are half scale!!! You are always making such perfect 1:12 scale flowers... and now you are working on even smaller ones? Wow! That is a challenge! And you have done so well.... they look just as perfect as your 1:12 tulips look! LOL!
And Spring in your RL garden is looking divine!!!

Tatiana zei

Привет Илона!
Ваши тюльпаны выглядят как настоящие цветы на моей даче. Они такие маленькие! Вы удивительный миниатюрист.
Мне нравятся ваши кеды. Я не представляю, как можно сделать такую маленькую обувь. Я понимаю, когда обувь приклеена к ноге куклы. Но вы же делаете настоящую обувь. Обувь, которую можно одеть или снять... Вы талант!
Обнимаю
Татьяна

Thank you so much for visiting, dear Ilona. Your kind words mean so much, coming from an artist such as yourself.

Ik vind je tulpjes en schoentjes er nu al prachtig uit zien, maar ik snap wel dat jij zelf elk dingetje ziet wat misschien beter kan ;-)

Los tulipanes, increíbles, pero esas diminutas zapatillas...son ¡wow! Un trabajo muy difícil y perfectamente hecho. Felicidades. Un beso

Hannah zei

I think the mini tulips looks great! And the shoes too! so cute, and love the "dirt" underneath.
Forget-me-nots are one of my favourites, hope to see some here soon too =)
