So anyway, back to miniatures.
To get me in the crafting groove again. I decided to start with making the small accessories. I usually start with those as they are easier and more relaxing to do than the furniture. Last year I created some miniature Dwell and Martha Stewart magazines with matching magazine organizers. This year I thought why not make my own magazine designs?
So that's what I did.
All the pictures used on the magazine designs were taken by me. As many of you may not know I specialize in packaging / label design and have always loved taking pictures of foods to sometimes use in my projects. I am not the best of photographers nor am I a food stylist, but I have developed a passion for it and have been self studying whenever I can. The food pictures you see in the mini YumYum magazines are the most recent and favorite shots I've taken so far. I have gotten these magazines printed on gloss paper which the pics don't really show that much.
This picture gives a peek of what the back of the magazines look like.
Of course the magazine set will not be complete without the miniature organizers. I managed to find a supplier for the mini metal label frames. It took me more than a month to get them, but it was all worth waiting for.
I was planning to list a few sets in Etsy but the first 8 sets I allotted to sell sold out before I had a chance to list them. Which was good since I got to sell them a few dollars cheaper since I didn't have to pay for Etsy fees. ^_^
My sets include 2 organizers and the 12 magazines.
If you're interested let me know. I may have a few more sets left. ;)
