Today's Mini-"Vintage"-Theatre Construction
I was going to work on doing an out-doors-y sort of woodland faery theatre piece.
But, it just seemed to get fancier and fancier as I went along, and it turned out a tad too royal for a forest scene.
I think maybe it's going to require a Marie Antoinette character inside it ...
I used papier mache (as usual) for the basic structure, and added vintage and handmade papers, a beautiful piece of antique brass filigree, an Anna Griffin crown embellishment, glass fringe in the shape of leaves, crepe paper, silk ribbon (for the bunting) and paper-and-ribbon covered dowels for the columns. As I look at it more and more, I think that maybe I'll need to add something to the facing of the balcony to add to the rhinestones. They're looking a little lonely there by themselves.
I guess now I'll need to see if I can get that natural forest-y stage structure started!
