This series of projects involve the construction of various shops you might find in Paris.
In a series of video tutorials share every detail construction and assembly detail with you much fun as I’ve been having.  In addition to the shops themselves, I cover all kinds of other details such as making display cases and accessories like polymer clay sweets and foods, miniature shoes, purses, dresses, and perfume bottles.

I've also created many new collage sheets and digital image sets for this project plus free images for you to download,  you'll find the details in each of the shop & detail element blog posts down below.

Ok Laura...I’m going to HATE myself for this, but I feel it’s only fair to mention: why aren’t you charging for these tutorials???? I’ve paid for less instruction, substandard (compared to yours) construction, and I’m simply mystified as to why you go through all this trouble for free!!! I get that, as an artist, it’s about sharing. BUT, there are a decent number of us (I hope!) that would love the chance to pay it back to you. Ive CASEd more of your stuff than anyone; in fact, I’ve done this with more of yours than all the rest, combined. You’ve given enough away for a lifetime..;come on, let us help!!! If you insist, you can refrain from charging me, since it was my idea. But that’s it. ���� no matter what, thank you for all the tutorials and hours you’ve spent photographing and video taping on our behalf. I’m a huge fan-as you know, by now-and I truly appreciate everything you do? And yes.:.you better believe I’m making the French village!!!
