Imaginarium Designs - Off The Page Project

Hi, today I want to share a Off The Page project that I made for Imaginarium Designs. Due to the many tutorials and details of this project, I will be splitting and sharing afew posts on this project over the next few days.

"The Repair Shop"

"The Repair Shop"

Inspired greatly by the chipboard windows, bicycles and the gears, I made a miniature repair shop. Today I will share on how to make the base and main body of shop.

Used a wood board for the base. I mask off the rest of the area with masking tape. Then cover a portion of the board with texture paste over a stencil. Heat dry.

Paint over it with acrylic paint to create the stone pavement.

 Then I cover the rest of board with a green felt as grass patch.

Adhered some moss randomly.

I used a S$2 Daiso white wooden box (that's hollow base) for the main body of shop. Then I cut a piece of cardboard, cover with patterned paper and cut out the space for the chipboard windows and adhere to the box. After which I cover the sides with brick patterned papers.

For the floor in the shop, I scored strips of kraft papers, rub over with graphite Viva Decor Inka Gold, then arranged and adhered down to floor. Note that I added a thin strip of wood to widen the floor space abit (painted the wood strip white before adhere).

For the chipboard windows, gears, corners, frames and the diecut tools (glued about 7 layers of diecut kraft papers), I colored them with Viva Decor Inka Gold-Graphite, Silver and Bronze.

I made the table from wood sheet and strips and wooden decorative legs and inked randomly with distress ink to give it a dirty look. For the peg board, I cut from a foam sheet, used piercer to poke holes and twist wires around the tools to hang them on the peg board. And they can be removed easily. I made the kraft tool boxes (below the table) from scratch too.

Here's some pictures of the miniature shop:

For the chipboard bicycles, I painted them white, then go over certain parts with Sharpie pens and added black half pearls at centre of wheel.
