OK. Page 2 - my 'new' website is up and running in its correct place. Starting to put up inventory and stories behind my artworks.
This is page 2 of my 1:12 scale dollhouse miniature paintings.

You can see where my heart is - animals (dogs), garden/old things, beach/ocean/sunsets, and houses (particularly old ones - both shown are heritage homes). The first page I showed (last post) had animals (cats), birdlife, beaches, flowers/gardens, old things (buildings), and beaches.

The stories behind my art - #001 - 010 'dollhouse' 1:12 scale miniature original paintings.

I am getting my art together, along with the stories behind the paintings. This is the first page - numbers 1-10 of my miniature paintings in 1:12 scale - meant primarily for dollhouses, roomboxes, etc.

I've offered prints on old book pages in my Etsy store before, as well as currently. But this is a first.

I was thinking how much I love teacups, especially those with pink roses, and then thinking how popular prints of my watercolor of one has been. I had an old book from 1876 nearby, and was thinking of printing on the pages of it. And from there, this became my new creation (using my own art for printing onto old book pages).

It would be great for a feminine themed area, tea shop / cafe, or would suit shabby chic decor.

The book has some wonderful old quotations from Victorian times. Did people ACTUALLY talk like this - thee, and thoust, etc.? This is the real thing - you get the book page with the print on it. If it sells, I may offer more - just on different pages, of course.

Available on Etsy in my "Dreamy Papers" store.
