This morning I made a little frame for the sampler from some moulding I had lying around. I know from real life art that a frame always makes a piece look about one third better than it does without a frame! I'm going to stain the frame oak to go with other pieces in Mum's roombox. (Edited to add photo of stained frame, below).
The sampler I just fabric-glued to a piece of card, let it dry, and then trimmed it to fit the frame. Very easy to do.
I've decided to go with the gold/yellow for the Blue and White Room -- thanks to everyone for chiming in! The colour is called "Stuart Gold" by Benjamin Moore, so I need to do my panelling first and then get painting!
This blog chronicles the adventures of a group of Canadians building a 1:12 scale medieval or Tudor dolls' house or dolls' castle. We're also working on a William and Mary era dollhouse circa 1700, featuring Jacobean, Carolean and Queen Anne furniture. Dollhouse aficionados, those who enjoy making or sharing doll house miniatures, and people who enjoy sharing crafts with children may enjoy the adventures of this group.
I built the background image of this site using some of the fabulous work from Vintage Retro Grunge. The "Green Man" reproduction medieval tile on the bottom right is by Kate Tiler. The other two, the griffon and the happy little creature (possibly a lion with a bagel?), are both by Pataki Tiles.
