Lightbulb The water spot.........................

...Saw a pikki of a SYLVANIAN barge on a 'canal' and decided to make one to go at the side of the dollshouses or caravan i have.....
..used a sandwich tray 15'' x 6''.....glued some sandpaper sheets to cereal packet the size of tray.........put glue along in stages and put some little stones on top..shake the excess stones off after a while............found some polished stones that looked 'wet'.......................added some lichen here and there..........i glued some blue glitter here and there but it did'nt look so good..so i used silver,when the light shines on it it gives a good effect ...

Arrow

.........cut some willow fencing to the height you want it,then stick it to cereal box cardboard again and weigh it down....................you could add fish other animals,objects in it....i will make 2 little bridges to go either side but you could fit this into something with grass all arond it and have a doll fishing in it?...or kiddies with a fishing net and jars for a scene.............it would be small enough to pack away if you did not want it on show all the time....... ...or make some locks to go either side of it .....i have seen little rowing boats that would fit in this size so you have a man sitting in that or have an edwardian lady with a parousol sunning herself!.......i don't have any perspex/plastic long enough to go over it....a doll box would probably do the trick..........
..you coule make a bank for the back of it from cardboard..stick some railway grass sheeting over it to give it more dimension if you have plenty of room...or stick it in a boxroom....
