I made this little scene a few days ago and I thought I would show it to you.
I found the little tray at the dollar store and i thought it was really cute. When i got it, it was just the raw wood so i painted it a pretty light blue colour.
The mug was a Christmas one so I painted it purple. It was a challenge to paint the mug because it was all glossy and stuff so it took a lot of paint, paint that was a mix of dark purple and white. I had to keep remixing more paint but it was never exactly the same as the first. Inside the mug you can see a little brown (coffee), that was made be mixing a lot of white glue and a little brown paint.
There isn't really a point to the dominoes, they just looked pretty. To glue them in the right places i used a VERY small bit of hot glue so it wouldn't show when looked at from different angles.
The book page is just a normal book page, nothing special. (I ripped it a bit though)
Then I took a few flowers (from my lent is over post) and arranged them in the corners.
The spoon is just an old spoon. I wanted to position it differently but there was a logo on the end and i wanted to cover it. On the spoon I dripped a bit of the "coffee."
