I built the corner on the little glue jig (from Rita too - thank you Rita!) and applied the brick paper to the inside of the walls.
Then I applied the brick paper to the outside walls and the two little inside walls, which I also topped with the white strips.
I then painted the inner patio and stone step with a grey paint. Placed them on the base and painted the 'grass' with green paint.
The patio in Rita's photograph has lovely crazy paving drawn on in a very effective way, but I decided I wanted a slightly overgrown garden with large stone slabs and grass growing up in between each one, hmmmm could the inspiration for the 'overgrown' bit come from my own little unkempt yard?? I did this by 'drawing my stone slabs with glue onto the patio and then covering with the grass in the kit.
Then 'hey presto' I tipped the loose grass off and this is what was underneath. The slabs are probably WAY out of scale but I like them.
I glued the patio into place in the corner. Just to give you an idea of scale the inner patio is a similar size to an English ten pence piece.
Once I had glued the inner walls and the stone step into place it was really starting to take shape.
Then I added the grass on the lower part of the garden, and of course there had to be grass growing up along the inner edge of my step - it just needs some HUGE dandelions and it would look like home.
That is where I have got to today. There is still the outer fence to build, a pergola, a bench and of course all those beautiful flowers to add. This kind of gardening I can quite happily handle.
