You may have seen my very first post... In it, I showed a blank canvas - a gorgeous dollhouse that I picked up for $10 at Cotton On Kids. I've been plugging away at it, hoping to make the already sweet doll's house something amazing.
As you can imagine, it sure is taking its time, but I think it's well worth it -
I've still got a few more night's worth of work on it, but here's some sneaky peeks...
Each one of these roof tiles was cut out from Kaisercraft English Rose- Thelma paper, (using my craft robo - I'm crazy, but not that crazy that I was going to cut them out by hand!), and then individually inked, using Tim Holtz distress inks, before being carefully layered onto the roof. Let me say now, that after 5 nights of cutting, inking and layering, I'm never going to put my hand up to shingle a roof anytime soon, but I was really pleased with how it all came together.
I'm planning on changing the colour of the fancy bits at the front from white to a pink to match the window frames - what do you think?
