The Wizard’s Study

13 Feb

What do you do with scrap leather?  I got these sample leather swatches from an Op Shop and didn’t know what to do with it.    I was flicking through my hardbound  “Alice in Wonderland” book when I realised it was so obvious … What do you do with scrap leather?  Make miniature books, that’s what!

To make the wizard’s study of course you’ve got to have potions, a magic mirror, a crystal ball, a wand, and a sky high pile of books…

It took a while to make that pile of books stay where they were.  It just kept falling… until sticky dots saved the day.   Take a peek at the Wizard’s Study.

    All your work is so beautiful — I just had to say — as a 365 participant (though just getting started)… Sticky dots RULE. I’ve used them for innumerable purposes (certainly ones that the creators never had intentions for) for several years now. I don’t know how I ever lived without them! 🙂

    I am -so- inspired. I had seen “little terrariums” on the Daily Grommet and thought, “perhaps somewhere in the 365 project…” but now I know that an unused “cheese dish” I have will most definitely need to be used. I thank you for your most beautiful inspiration.

    Such intentive, detailed, incredible work. *applause*
