I Dare You - I could not resist in showing you now!!!!
thats me finished now! :( but heres the houses i did for Heidi i sure hope she likes them!!!!!!! The first house i called "flying the nest", I knew i wanted to have this phrase on one of them, and the image happened by accident as i was rummaging through a draw and found it and thought oooh that would fit!,so i stamped another stamp to use its wings. i alcohol inked the base of the house and covered the top half of that in utee, the bottom half i added some mesh and the dynmo words. the heart is made of clay and i painted it with acrylics, i rubbed a gold rub on all over it. the top part with the 3 mini butterflys i stamped and embossed and added them on to some gold beading and attached them to the image as if the were flying "the nest".
The second house is called "what it means to me", i wanted to sort of sum up what a home would mean to people, i dont like where i live but know what the home really means to me if that makes sense!.
at the moment it would not be me creating if i didnt use a clay mask another addiction!, so i added fibres for her hair and plaited them, i wanted them to give the effect of curtains. the roof i added a piece of patterned paper, i added ribbon as a divide, i stamped loads of words into clay and painted them black, these were the words what mean something, the dynmo words are the material things!. i added silver rubon to the whole piece. i wanted the base to be textured so i added 2 different types of mesh, and some foil and painted that black to, i used the heat gun to dry it rather than have the bubbled up effect, i am so impatient!
I have to say i am actually quite chuffed with both of these houses, and cant wait to start on my own!.
