My Mini Craft Room

I really wanted to add my PiF tiny craft room to a few challenges so hunted a few out. And the fact that it's little picture won't appear in the inlinks thingy on my blog if it hasn't got a post of it's own! I've added a few more photos...very long post so just scroll down!!
After painting it, I added the 'wall paper' with mock coving and skirting boards, the bench was covered in wood effect sticky back paper. All the little books have staples and the sheets of backing papers are held together with a brad, so they look as though they were just thrown on the shelves as they are fan-able (is that a word?) or moveable, but can't fall off. There's a cup, which is really a seed pod, a bead held in place with glue and a pin...
The scissors and hammer are brads. Tiny buttons. Tiny punched out flowers. A pink square of foam for the cutting board. Rolls of tiny thread, and ribbon. Inches seemed to be a good thing to use as pictures or scrapbook pages. The spider, wine bottle and glass are confetti. Tiny 3D foam pads have been cut down to look like big foam pads. A lid was used for a (very filled) waste paper basket. A decoupage sheet was reduced to a very tiny size and has 'fallen' onto the floor. The carpet really is my craft room carpet! I used a tiny tag punch smudged with glitter to look like one of those glitter trays.
A WOYWW Banner is on the wall. A clock, storage jars and the cat were all cut from magazines. The 'pin board' was a tag, I cut little slits to hold the 'letters'. A mini me ((Loony Lyn) is on the front of one of the books. String, thread, paper, beads, and ribbons fall from match box draws. The pencil tub was just a glued roll of paper held by the white paper clip, which I left on. It was then filled with silicone glue and filled with cut down match sticks and tooth picks to look like pens and pencils. A tiny glass jar, which once held beads was filled with all sorts of bits and pieces. A very small cotton reel now appears to be a very large cotton reel. The 'card' is actually full size and was on a decoupage set, so you would know how the card would look once made up. I'd kept it in one of my draws and it just fell out as if to say, use me!! so I did...!

How it started, painted on my ironing board... and turned into this..

For one of my challenges there has to be a tag...
The little glitter tray is a tiny woodware punched tag

The notice board was a tag cut down and
there's the butterfly for the Tuesdaytaggers challenge

The last thing I stuck down was the little brown parcel under the counter. The tag on it reads to Debs! (who was my PiF partner) It's supposed to be the little craft room all wrapped up ready to be posted... Thanks for stopping by!
