Housey, Housey

Hello,

Houses seem to be all the rage at the moment don't they? A lot of my friends are making them and being as I always have to copy my mates, I made a house last weekend. However, after I showed it to Grim, who laughed and then said it looked like a Space Rocket and then changed it to something very rude that I will not repeat here... I binned it! :O))

Then, I saw it sitting there, in the bin, looking a little bit dejected, so I salvaged it and altered it a bit and then decided that the bin option was the best thing for it. Then, just as it was on it's way to be recycled, I changed my mind and left it sitting on my desk....where it has languished all week.



So, here it is. It isn't what I intended it to look like, nor is it my favest piece I have ever made, but I have grown rather fond of it!!

Using a hand drawn template, I cut out the shape and then cut out a window. I used Distress Inks and stamps from PaperBag Studios and Catslife Press to decorate it. I added the little bird and the charm to the chimney as a last resort LOL

Thanks for looking and you can be as truthful as you like....honest opinions please!!!

Sometimes you are just too hard on your self missus, it's a great ickle house, love it and to be honest dont think it needed the charm or the bird it looks like it was fine to start with xxx but the birdie is cute xx

Melissia said...

Very pretty. I like that you cut a window rather than stamped one. I think that gives it a lot of character.
