I've talked about these before - Framed Photo Art in Miniature. If you click on the picture above, you can see a much larger version, and a lot more detail.

These are going to be debuting in my Etsy shop before the end of this week. Neither of the two shown will be there, as the waterfall was given away as a gift, and if you look closely at the other, there was a slight matting mishap! The matting was wide enough but not tall enough.

Making these has been one long, sometimes frustrating journey.

I live in the Smokey Mountains, and one of my favorite past-times is hiking. I LOVE to take off early in the morning, camera in hand, and hit the trails in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park. And I wanted to combine my two favorite things; my photography and my Mini's. All is well while I'm out taking pictures, but the problem was shrinking them small enough for Mini's while keeping the sharpness and clarity!! Finally, a good friend of mine, Fairy Garden, figured out how to do it, and through the magic of Photoshop, we got some useable pictures.

These two are framed in hand crafted frames, but I wanted something a little fancier, so I looked high and low to find picture frame molding in 1:12 scale, and FINALLY!! Success. :0)

Anyway, to make a very long story short, I'm going to be selling my original art photography, miniaturized and framed in hand-crafted frames. I hope you check them out in my shop when they're on sale. And thanks for looking.
