    Twinkle Tinkerer’s Workshop plus New Mini Tools & Charms on SALE!

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Giveaways, Lucky Star Kit, Miniatures, Shannon Cooper

    Wow! What a treat we have today! Design Team Member Shannon Cooper created a magical Twinkle Tinkerer’s Workshop that is so full of wonderful details that you’ll be enchanted!

    Per Shannon: The idea is a bit of a quirky one. It’s a workshop for a someone that mends stars (and maybe collects all of the dreams and wishes, too).

    I’m going to point out a few items throughout this post, but here’s Shannon’s full supply list and blog post in case you want to jump ahead or look for something specific.

    Before I zoom in on close-up photos, the base of this project is a 7×7 Corner Room Box (covered in papers from the Lucky Star 8×8 Paper Pack… more on that in the next section).

    Plus the main work surface for this tinkerer is a 1:12 Scale Workshop Table (with a tiny stool).

    There are so many pretty things sitting on/being repaired on the table that there’s a whole section below just about those.

    But first: A larger photo of that 8×8 paper used as wallpaper, and that mobile over the table…


    Lucky Star 8×8 Paper Pack

    This 8×8 paper is perfect when matched with the 7×7 corner room box! (In contrast to the larger 12×12 single sheets that Shannon Thomas used recently on a smaller corner room box in her Star Filled Dreams project — both projects are beautiful and worth comparing for scale.)

    One of the large celestial map images is used as the round rug. Even that “poster” (at the far right of the photo below) is a snippet from one of the papers, with molding added around the edges as a frame.

    Ooh… and that mobile! It’s made of charms hanging from a metal swivel plant hanger. AND it’s the inspiration for today’s new Sale!

     
    NEW Sale: CHARMS

    Yes, I’ll be getting back to highlights from Shannon’s artwork in a minute but that mobile…!

    The sale ends TUESDAY NIGHT, March 9th at midnight PST. See the entire sale collection here!

     
    Back to some details from Shannon’s artwork

    Oh my… what a creative use of the Mini Wooden Oil Drums! WIth a bit of text from the Fairy Dust Collage Sheet (and a Oil & Vinegar Cruets Set sitting on top).

    The right side of the photo is a close-up of the shelf under the table. I spy a Fluted Glass Canister with Lid (with a cherub leaning against it), a 1cm Clear Glass Globe on a bead cap, and a large apothecary jar… all the better filled with sequins and glitter!

     
    What is new today?

    Lots of miniature tools! And a few of these are in Shannon’s artwork, too!

    All of these are 1:12 scale except that ridiculously tiny/cute half scale hammer at right.

    Plus the Miniature Garden Tools – Rake & Shovels (at far right) is back-in-stock!

    Ooh, one last new thing (wonky stars!) are highlighted in the next section!

     
    Ooh… that Table!

    For my last highlight: I LOVE all the bits and bobs Shannon put on top of the table! And check out the new Wonky Stars Shape Set (shown at right, and below all glittered in orange and blue… under the shelf).

    There are a bunch of mini tools, too:
    Set of 4 Miniature Wrenches
    Miniature Hand Saw Set
    Miniature Mallet

    And mainly on the top shelf: a bunch of cast metal minis (many recolored with metallic pens):
    Half Pint Cream Bottle
    Metal Pickle Jar
    3 Square Half Scale Canisters
