July OMB QS Project - Christmas Market Stall

As most of you know, I do lots of miniature swaps.   It is a great way of acquiring miniature items at a reasonable cost.

One of the groups I belong to is Swap Shop.   It started as only 1/12 scale and over a period of time it has progressed to about half & half of 1/12 scale and 1/4 scale.   Recently our theme was Christmas Market Stall.   Our swap hostess, Fern  made the little stalls for us and we all contributed things to fill them.

Here is the front of the stall.   Fern was nice to ask what color roof we wanted.   I picked Green.

I gave the stall a quick coat of light beige.  

I got angels, Christmas trees, centerpiece, angels and a hanging Santa hook in the swap.   I made a snowman for everyone and had several left over and used them all.   I also got one decorated Christmas tree and added them to others in my stash.  

One thing you might notice is that I put these types of projects on clear Plexiglas.   That makes the ground where they are displayed more prominent and it shows thru and the Plexiglas fades into the background.  

Now I can't wait until Christmas to get this out for all to see.   Still have a couple of things to do for the stall.   I want some filled shopping bags.   That will be cute I think.

Come back next month and see the August project.
