Spot the Difference-Roundtables

Spot the Difference

by Debbie Young

            I was recently organizing the Roundtables that I have made over the years and had my samples all laid out on a tray.  I moved a couple of things around and thought how fun it would be to do a ‘Spot the Difference’ game using miniatures.  I created this one using those Roundtables and, do you know what?  It was fun…and it didn’t take very long at all.  See if you can spot all 11 differences.  

            Obviously, the most important thing missing in the second photo is U.  With the additional time we are spending at home…wouldn’t it be fun if we all made one?  The possibilities are as varied and as unique as each of our members.   You could make one out of a collection of flowers, or a 1” scale roombox you have made, or even what you currently have on your worktable. To make one, simply start with a display or even a selection of small items, photograph it head on…move some things around (10 – 12 differences are good) and re-photograph (I just used my phone).  Then, send the two photographs to me (Debbie Young –  And, don’t forget to send a key with the differences as well.  It is that simple.  It will be a fun way to share a little bit of yourself with our members.  If you get them to me, I will make sure they appear either in the Gazette or online.  Come on, are you game?  Get it…Game?
