These photos are practice shots from a scene I’m working on for the Back Talk Cafe story.
The backdrop is an actual photograph of an old shuttered theatre in a tiny rural town that we drive through at least once a year. (We are easily distracted by cool old buildings and structures.)
By dinking with the colorizing, my husband can print it out in different color tones and saturations, which helps give it a mood or ambiance. We’ve got others I’m eager to try out as backdrops too!
I made the little suitcases shown in the scene by glueing fabric to lightweight card stock. I strung beads for the little handles. I’m in a glueing fabric phase or something because I love making those little suitcases!
And I simply like the doll: the Disney Fairy Godmother doll from the most recent Cinderella movie; the big ringlet curls, the wide eyes, she looks like Helena Bonham Carter, the actress who played the Fairy Godmother character. I bought it for a considerable discount with the intention of reselling but when it arrived even better than expected, I decided pretty quick that the Back Talk Cafe story definitely needs a Fairy Godmother.
