I've been very busy lately, both with a few social dinners and family visits, but also accompanied my eldest daughter to the hospital for her monthly medicine. Getting the Multible Sclerosis (MS) medication that she must have take even a whole day at the hospital. A little stress for both mother and daughter. So while we sat there I thought hmmm it's almost Christmas, maybe I should show the stylish Christmas house that I have made in between battles.
And here it is - my christmashouse. I am very proud of the results ☺It was so much fun making this madhouse ☺
And here - just because I like you so much, is a step by step tut. of how I did this marvelous house:
I started with a canvas shaped like a house and gesso it
and took out my tim Holtz stencil called Holliday Knit and stenciled with red and green acrylic paint, like a panel on the house.
the roof is made of watercolor paper in 100 lb, cut into a bunch of small round triangles, and painted with gold paint
then I find my Rubber Dance rubber stamps Giraffe, Deer and Pinecones and stamp them on a tag with Archival Black ink, then I collored them with Distress Ink and cut them out.
I painted with yellow and white in the windows to get the effect of lamplight from the inside of the house. I also stamp the girafe and deer in the window, just to gain a little shade
and here is the animals and the pinecones in color
I stamp the beautiful snowman with Distress ink on a tag
I colored the hat with Distress ink
I glued a lace ribbon at the transition between the wall and the roof before I glued all the tiles on the roof
I took the snow paint and pushed a litle snow on the roof, window sills and bottom of the wall with a big brush
I glued some bling up under the eaves for icicle effect
and here is some close ups for my project
