House on the Cliff by Lesley

Hey everyone. Lesley here with a little house for you. (i'm still quite obsessed with these!)

I've been wanting to use this slab of wood for awhile now. To me......it resembled a cliff, where it has been chiseled away....so i knew a house had to sit on top of it.


 The house is a large block style cube one. I gave it a coat of gesso and then attacked it with rust paste.


The roof was heat embossed with rust embossing powder.


The windows were painted grey and then black dabbed over the top. And then i added some little screwheads.


And the door was coated in crackle glaze with black rubbed into the cracks.


 I trimmed the fence down to fit and left an opening where the door is. I left this plain, as the natural colour of craft parts is rather scrummy!


 I added a smidge of colour by adding a little tree, which consisted off a rusty screw, a blob of glue and some green moss type stuff.


 I think i may have one more house idea up my sleeve............

Thanks for reading.
