I got creative this week and made a new board with matching background in which to set up my sylvanians on. this time I used different colors for the grass. previously i used a very bright and pretty Lime Green, which i actually like better than this color. I may actually redo this and use the Lime Green this time. the Lime Green was much brighter and prettier I think. plus, I haven't seen anyone else use that color as grass for their Sylvanians before and I feel like it gave my photos a little touch of "me".I bought a packet with a long white picket fence in it. it was originally tied together with white wire, but since that was impossible to glue down (I tried!) i decided to untwist all of the wire off that held the fence together, and tediously glue each and every plank down individually. i wasn't sure at first how good that would look, but i think it actually looks rather cute! I also bought "fluffy" white felt and used them as the clouds. they probably aren't low enough to show up in a lot of my photos, but i still like seeing them myself :)
i've been trying to hold off on creating more stories until i purchase a new camera. my old one really doesn't take great photos and i know this blog would look a million times nicer with a better camera. Mr. SylvanianLove and i have been looking at Nikons and will be purchasing a very good one sometime this week before we leave for our trip. so when we get back and we're all unpacked and settled, i'll get started on more stories and photographs.
