Mini-room: Straw into Gold

Made for @imera in the Mini Room Swap; one of her interests was fairy tales, and I did the thing where I just started working on something and this is what it ended up.


(yes, I know that’s not actually how a spinning wheel works.)

And a few in-progress bits:
Flagstones (gel pen outlines & fill… after that I added watercolor pencil & then played with a water brush)

Haystack! (strawstack?) It’s made of garden twine, loosely crocheted into a cone, then with a whole bunch of short lengths untwisted & pulled through the base.

Egg carton wall stones (before I added the top of the second wall) and both the straw and the little balls of spun gold tied down with thread & then glued on the bottom:

Windows, full wall, stones slightly rearranged (I could have spent basically forever tinkering with the stones…), and gluing the tiny toothpick-tip legs to the stool…
