Dressing the 1:144 Scale Queen Anne is going to take some time.

I recently spent several hours on the fireplace. The largest portion of my time went into designing the tile — it had to print as an actual design, not a brown blob. I started with creating a fabulously intricate Moroccan-flavored tile. Printed at such a tiny scale, the details all melted together to create a solid brown tile. The final graphic is a much simplified and brightened design.

Doesn’t look right, does it? But it prints well.

For the fireplace construction, I was greatly inspired by Anna Carin’s fireplace tutorial. Because I wanted a natural wood finish, I used wood where Anna Carin used cardstock, but the build method is pretty much identical.

And just for fun…
