A Few New Details in The Little Blue Rhapsody. Trochę nowy detali w Błękitnej Rapsodii.


Do you do what I do, sometimes? ;)
I finished  my Little Blue Rhapsody over a year and 8 months ago. Left it as it was and it seemed I was quite pleased with it.
Yet everytime I was looking at it I was feeling the inside of this small lantern was kind of... empty or unfinished.

When I was finishing work on Laundry on The Backyard I already knew I needed to add some small touches to the Rhapsody, specially because I wanted to take both lanterns with me to my show.

I loved the light fixture with Sans candles inside so much I decided to keep it for another and only-for-me project and changed it for DHE battery operated classic floor lamp. But honestly I hated  original lampshade so added a bit of ribbon and lace there.


I also added net curtains high above the arm chair.

Then I thought of giving the scene a little bit of "life".  First I filled the table top with dark blue book and blue-white cup with saucer (after all this is a Blue rhapsody.;)) so that the scene looked like someone has left a second ago. And I thought about a piece of something sweet to eat. I loved Drora's idea how to make a Ferrero candy but had none home so decided to try making something that resembled a little macarron instead.;)



Quite suddenly I thought about shoes but only of high heels and made a pair.



So where is the other one - I hear you ask. Here. Can you see it?



And now?


No? So maybe now....



Now you see who took it so far away...


But it was not one kitten but two! LOL!








And now I think this scene is complete.:)

 I think it's fun when you can see the whole scene from every side and  with each side you can find something different.

For kids who came along with their parents to my vernissage I had a little riddle: they were looking for animals and shoes among or in my miniatures. And I think it was fun for them too.;)

Zdarza Wam się pracować po raz kolejny nad czymś co skończyliście już dawno temu?
Tak właśnie było z moją Błękitną Rapsodią. Skończyłam ją ponad 20 miesięcy temu a ciągle wydawało mi się, że czegoś w niej jeszcze brakuje....
Jak już skończyłam pracę nad Praniem postanowiłam dodać to i owo do Rapsodii, żeby ją trochę "ożywić".
Na początek zmieniłam oświetlenie: moją własnoręcznie zrobioną latarenkę zamieniłam na standardową lampę stojącą na baterię z DHE, ale za nic na świecie nie podobał mi się klosz, więc dodałam do niego wstążkę i koronkę.
Po niej przyszedł czas na firanki po obu stronach fotela, a potem na drobiazgi na stoliczku, oczywiście niebieskie ;), książkę, opróżnioną już filiżankę i ciasteczko.
Chciałam, żeby wnętrze latarenki wyglądało jakby ktoś właśnie na chwilę wyszedł. Pewnie dlatego pomyślałam o klapeczkach, koniecznie na obcasie. Tak... tylko gdzie jest drugi...?
Widzicie już?
A teraz?
Tutaj się schował! A raczej ktoś go schował... i to nie jeden ktoś.;)

Wydaje mi się, że w końcu Rapsodia wygląda jak trzeba. Myślę, że fajnie jest jeżeli każda strona scenki wygląda inaczej i można doszukać się ciekawych czy zabawnych szczegółów.

Dzieciaki, które przyszły na wernisaż z rodzicami, dostawały ode mnie zadanie odgadnięcia ile w lub pomiędzy miniaturami można zobaczyć zwierząt i butów.;) I chyba im się takie odgadywanie podobało.;)

AAAW... Ewa, the Kittens are Perfect for this little scene!!! I LOVE how they tell the story of the shoes! And the book and the teacup are Perfect! And the extra curtain! I can see how little children would love to look for the special items... and I also love the idea of seeing the scene from all sides even while it is protected! Just Brilliant! I wish I could come sit in that little spot! :):)

Hello Ewa! This was a very good idea about that riddle for kids, it must have been funny for them to look for it :D! I also love the idea with the shoes and the kittens, it is just like a realistic scene now, well done! Your Rapsody in Blue is very beautiful with all the details you've added to the scene!
Have a great sunday and week! Hugs, Ilona

Enchanting scene! I really like the shoes and the kittens.
Bye, Faby

Maria Ireland said...

I love the little kittens and shoes they have really brought your scene to life. The cup and macaroon makes it look like someone just sat and relaxed kicked their shoes off and sat reading for a while :) I bet the kids had great fun.
Hugs Maria

Chapeau - you've made the most perfect additions and managed to bring an already stunning project to life. It really looks as if someone has just left and the playful kittens new they're time had come. Great idea with the shoe and the kitties!

It is a good idea to create scenes that can be enjoyed from several sides. Your scene is so lively. Very sweet with the two little kittens.

You've really made the scene come alive with these cute additions.
We've had plenty of troubles with our puppy nibbling and hiding our shoes and our, at that time, little daughters covering up for him. Seeing one lonely shoe brought back funny memories.
Hugs, Drora

Sans! said...

This is a very different rhapsody, Ewalina. This one has motion! :) And definitely a story :). And that coffeecup stains look so familiar :)like mine this morning. And that book, how I will love to hold it in my hand and read it aloud. Ah yes, those kittens and shooooo, MY blue slippers!!!!!

With this rhapsody, you have made something everyone wants to be a part of or can relate to :).

I´m happy you finished this scene because the result is wonderful!

Jesteś perfekcjonistką :). Rzeczywiście wygląda to tak, jakby ktoś przed chwilą wstał z fotela, a za moment wróci i będzie szukać drugiego klapka, porwanego przez psotnego kociaka :).
