Pixie's Dreamiorama by PixieCold Pixie's Dreamiorama by PixieCold
Heyy! :D

Woow... this was probably the most time-consuming project I ever did. But at the same time it was soo much fun and I realized how much I missed doing pieces of handicraft! (Which I used to do A LOT when I was younger.. ^^) This took about 35+ hrs in total, all the detail was killing me! xD But I am really happy with the result, it looks much better in reality, but I hope the photos portrait my idea and concept in a good way! ^^

About the idea for the diorama:



When I think of autumn the first thing, that comes to my mind, is that dreamy atmosphere autumn brings along. I love the feeling of sitting in a park and just enjoying the beautiful colorful trees and the rays of sun bathing the whole scenery in twilight. And the best thing is, if you can enjoy this atmosphere with a person you love, may it be a friend, a family member or your lover! ^^ People (and also animals :)) seem to get closer together, as it gets colder outside. That's what the two people on the bench and also the fawn and it's mother are standing for. I also really love pavillons, they have that special kinda romantic appeal! So I placed the scene in one! :) I hope I succeeded in catching what autumn means and what it feels like for me! ^^

Techniqual stuff:



The shoebox measures 23cm x 34cm and is 13cm high (+ 13cm archway, so 26cm in total). It consists of solid carton.
The following materials were used for the other items in the box:
Trees, bushes: Artificial moss (it doesn't rot), wire, goldspray
Bench: Solid stalks of straw, wire
Persons, animals, kite, pavillon: Solid black carton, transparent yellow paper
Underground: cut foam, synthetic turf glued on it (like used on model railways)
Little details (flowers, latern, mushroom, leaves etc.): Different materials

Everything is handcrafted except the little mushroom, the little leaves on the ground are also bought, but I painted them red and brown to fit the autumn-theme. The little chestnuts are made of styrofoam painted with brown watercolors. :) Everything is glued/fixed with wire, so its safe for transport! :)

I am reeally excited how you like my diorama (or Dreamiorama xD).. I went to soo many different stores to get all the stuff and I spent so much work to get this done while also having an eye on my little daughter (she tried to destroy the diorama several times... haha ^^). I really hope all the work was worth it, if I won something, I would probably freak out.. :D

I would be veeery happy about comments, favs and meaningful feedback! Without your support I would be nothing! :hug:

I wish everyone good luck and a happy and cosy autumn-time! :heart:

this is a very cool diorama. Not to many things move me in a way that I want to go physically do something. This has. I am going to my local park, find a bench and maybe take some pictures.
