I always write, "I don't do dioramas," but the purchase of the above scented oil air freshener prompted the creation of one. It wasn't until I opened the package that I realized the lamp-shaped air freshener is 1:6 scale or close enough.
I thought I should take a leap to create a simple diorama to illustrate the scale. So I placed the air freshener back in the packaging and snapped the first image above.
My husband's assistance was employed to find a household item to use as an end table to hold the lamp. With his creative eye and instructions to try this, try that; do this, do that, the simple diorama featuring Alvin Ailey's American Dance Theater Barbie and her chaise lounge resulted.
What we used:
The air freshener is the lamp.
Two white plastic cutting boards create the side walls, angled to create depth.
Black velour cloth serves as the back wall and floor.
A white washcloth is a throw rug.
A crystal dessert dish covered with a coaster creates the coffee table.
The wall art is a thumbnail image pasted onto the original image.
Pretty neat, right?
As I was snapping photos, Husband asked, "You never thought you'd be a 50-year-old woman still playing with dolls, did you?" My answer was, "No," and I thought to myself, "I'm much closer to 60 than 50, and I'll still be playing with dolls then too."
