A Book Nook #1

Have you ever heard of a Book Nook Shelf Insert? I happened across these wonderful little pieces of art on Pinterest and was immediately taken by them. They are dioramas created to fit alongside books on a bookshelf. Many look like streets or alleyways, but many depict a fantasy world. The designs vary from very intricate to relatively simple. You can browse some of the lovely ones for sale on Etsy.
Anyway, I decided to try my hand at a couple of them. My first attempt was a cobblestone lane between a book store and an art gallery. The original inspiration piece with instructions can be found here, but I let my imagination dictate how mine was to look.

I’ll show you my second Book Nook in my next post.
