3D House Challenge

On our challenge blog http://bigartadventure.blogspot.com/ Rosie is challenging you all to make houses from boxes. Recycling at its best!! Here's mine - I chose a drinks carton because I liked the tall shape of it.
First I sanded it... then applied gesso (gorgeous stuff!) I painted it a few times and stuck bits on and added a roof.
I used my Invoke shrine stamps to create windows and a door then added more paint, Byzantia bits from Stewart Gill, chipboard, Treasure Gold wax and finally beeswax.

At the bottom you can see some details - don't you just love painted lace? I do!!!

Oh yes...I also added one of my little angels!!!

What a challenge ! How on earth did you come up with this idea? Im really looking forward to trying this one out. That painted lace is beautiful, I would never have thought about trying that, and your little cherub is so cute. You have excelled with this challenge, I love it, Jaqi x

What a great idea! It's funny, as I was looking at your photos and nearing the end of them...I thought... hmm.... would would I use this for? Pencils!! Markers!!
Fantastic. As you will see on my blog, my life is consumed with my son's wedding plans, but this will be on my "to do" list once everything settles!
