Our House In The Middle of Our Street

 

Here is my entry to this weeks Lots To Do challenge which is people/and or places. I deciced to use one of Crafty Individuals little wooden houses. It's been gesso'd, painted, sanded, stamped and finished off with distress stickles. None of this really shows in the photos but never mind. I really liked the shabby chic technique I tried earlier on this week, so I've used this on my roof. Lots of TH distress inks and stickles to match. I didn't really see the point of these stickles (as I bought about 12 bottles :o) ) I couldn't see that glitter would go with the grungy TH style. But I do like 'em, they are not tooo blingy, and you're allowed to put them on with your fingers!. I've been really adventurous and made myself a metal picket fence. My vintage family have been aged and UTEE'd. I'm still on a masive learning curve with my melt pot, like it cools instantly, so there's no point in making a pool in the centre of your image and expecting it to swoosh around. uh uh sets solid in the middle, but a blast with the heat gun melts it down again :o)
Thanks very much for looking, and enjoy the World Cup Final x
