OK yes - I am really enjoying making these little houses! LOL! Here are some other fun techniques or products you might try on your projects! First the little house (I believe) is a another Maya Road and I made it for a display at The Craftey Scrapper!
Don't you love when you get an idea and it actually works?
First I want you to pay attention to that little tree -
Clear Scraps actually sells 12x12 sheets of acrylic and I used
a Spellbinders leaf die to cut out this tree! I cut two leaves out of the
sheet, bent them in half and adhered them together-just a little down
the center with Helmar 450 glue. I added snow and cemented it
down to the cardboard base with Snow Tex.
The snow is a product called Snow Tex - this stuff has been around for a long time and it is always a part of my stash. It is a pasty texture, you can add water if you want to make it smoother (or more runny!) and it dries rock hard so you can use it to hold things in place. You can even add a little glitter
and it looks sooo pretty. (I didn't for this project because I wanted a lot of contrast between the house and my cute little tree.)
COLOR; anyone who knows me or has been on my blog a while knows I love color! I decorated my little house with Pink Paislee Mistables (paper) and of course my trusty Gellatos from Faber- Castell s Design Memory Craft ! All you have to do is draw some lines and go back with a wet paint brush to move the brilliant color! Some of the Gellatos are metallic so you get the look without the mess! The papers are already embossed and resist the color! I love this look!
The windows are framed with cut outs from another Spellbinders die, as well as any trim you see!
The roof is a stencil with iridescent medium by Liquitex. I will say that I bought this years ago - another staple in my stash and now I can't find it!! Which is a real bummer becasue this stuff is so great with a stencil!
Last but not least - you cant really see it in the picture but the windows have a stained glass
look - I cut squares out of the 12x12 acrylic sheet from Clear Scraps to fit to fit each wall and colored them with my Big Stampers Brush from Faber Castell Design Memory Craft!
Lots of ideas! Happy Crafting!
