We had a heat wave this week, so we bought some ice cream

Great!

I'm so enjoying this thread, the displays you're making in your dome are beautiful & interesting to see what you can do in the limitations of such a small space.  It's a kind of Klicky haiku!

Especially enjoyed the gardening, zombie, beach, old couple, Halloween, 3 Wise men, snow day, & forest scenes.

Thank you! I like the klicky haiku comparison  ;D
The ones I like best are those with some height in them but those are also more difficult to do because the larger pieces take up more floor space.
The old couple is one that works for me. just a few pieces, but it tells a story.

They're lovely & unique little vignettes.  It's interesting to think about how you could use the vertical space.. have you thought about adding a coloured film & creating the illusion of part of the dome being under water?  or a glass column to give the illusion of something or someone floating within the dome?   

I'll look forward to seeing what else you make.

I haven’t thought about that yet. Those are great ideas. The water idea would be easiest
