Soft and romantic, Sweet Valentine is lit by candles, the air perfumed by flowers.
My Valentine dimension is finished (Sweet Valentine by Toefluff@Greybriar). It’s themed around a Valentine’s Day date with music and dancing, dining and wining, dipping – skinny or otherwise – and a large, well padded couch. Built in Dolcega Valley, Sweet Valentine takes advantage of the pool to create water gardens, a boating pool and a hot tub.
In Synchronicity and the Clock, I said it was about time to learn Dimension Toolbox. Major parts of this dimension were built using Toolbox. Dimension Dude’s Sobek Clock video was that vital clue in figuring out some of the power locked away in Toolbox. The windows of Sweet Valentine would have been impossible without it. Continue Reading
This feast makes the mouth drool and the stomach grumble. “Camelot” by Zero Tolerance@Icewatch.
Food is so much a part of our lives. It’s both a necessity and a luxury. It’s also also missing from the list of dimension items. Some very clever solutions have arisen to the problem of feeding the hungry. We look at how to display food to it’s best advantage and give simple recipes for our readers to follow at home. This Inspirations is dedicated to the clever dimensioneers object-morphing food into existence. Continue Reading
News on the Valentine’s Day front, there are now two competitions for you to enter. My own Dimensions Challenge: Valentine’s Day, for a dimension themed around Valentine’s Day, now has an entry form and a closing date of the 6th of February. You don’t have to finish your dimension by then but you must enter the challenge by that date.
If the thought of an entire dimension is a bit overwhelming, then have a look at Dimension Object Morphing™ Contest for Valentine’s Day. The establishment at Dimensions is looking for the best morphed object of 10 items or more. The two competitions are independently run, you may enter one or both without prejudice. There are no prizes but the joy of doing and publicity for your dimension, so get your Valentine’s spirit on and get dimensioning!
My Valentine’s display is well underway. I’ve tried my hand at some ‘art’, Elegance Art Gallery style. The results are on view to the right. If you decide to enter either contest – good luck and have fun!
Impressionist art from dimension items. ‘Elegance Art Gallery’ by Dragondancer@Icewatch.
In my travels around the dimensions, I occasionally luck into a real treasure. The Elegance Art Gallery by Dragondancer of Icewatch is one such gem. Situated in the Breach Chamber, Elegance Art Gallery makes good use of the building’s structure to display art works. As with the finest dimensions, Dragondancer adheres to the theme, I expected wine and cheese to be served at any moment.
Dragondancer does not confine the art to one category, rather examples of impressionism, still life, landscape and abstracts abound. All the paintings have one thing in common, they are all made from dimension items skillfully embedded in the walls of the dimension to form pictures. I can not begin to imagine the time spent rotating objects to make exactly the right patch of color to create a bird in flight or a boat on the ocean. Continue Reading
Keeping time. ‘The Radish Inn’ and Maze’ by Instability@Greybriar.
All the Christmas decorations are gone from my dimensions, ‘Merry Xmas, Greybriar’ has been destroyed and I’m prepared for my next venture. Once the Christmas wreath was taken down from the chimney, that spot over the fireplace looked empty so I decided to build a clock for the Radish Inn. It was an obvious artifact to go over the mantle and I hadn’t seen a clock in the dimensions I’ve visited. I set to work and built the clock* featured right.
With some spare time for browsing, I visit the object morphing section of Dimensions. Lo and behold, the Dimensions Dude** has posted his version of a clock along with video instructions. It wasn’t there 5 hours ago when I’d last checked. Do the Dimension Dude and I have a psychic connection, bringing our clocks into existence at the same time? Continue Reading
