A little Wooden House just crying out to be altered
Some time last year, I found this little house for sale at our local charity shop, well I just had to have it. I had not a clue what I was going to do with it and am still not 100% sure where my inspiration will take me but I will design as I go and then stop to think, then do some more.
Which were quite nice but I not quite what I wanted, I wanted a older, more grungy feel, so I took a piece of wet and dry and several ink Distress ink pads, pine needles,spiced marmalade, walnut stain, and one ink it up black ink and set about inking up one of the pages I wondered at this point if it would be easier to cut the inside shapes first then ink them up, so I sort of changed direction a little but it coming on quite well
The next thing I am going to do is to ink up all the inner paper squares and stain the edges of the frame in walnut stain I am thinking about added some of the beads from my £1 bargain charity shop find for feet maybe? not sure yet, I will modge podge the inner squares in place then set about staining and cutting the side and top pieces. Then I am going to varnish it all. Then comes the fun part I have been collecting little things to add to a project like this, I may need more but what fun its going to be adding the bits and bobs to it.
