Textures House Book

Well I am still soldiering on with my house texture pages which we are showcasing on the Cardmaking Paradise Forum.

Here is another example for the 'Buttons, bits and bobs' textured house

I had to scan it as my batteries were flat in my camera - doh!  
The face was an image transfer onto mount board for the back of the frame.
The front I cut out a scalloped aperture, then covered the whole of the area with tile sealant - which was the only glue type 'stuff' I had to had that I could smooth on thickly to take the different depths and sizes of buttons and other 'junk' bits and pieces.

  I smothered them all with metal paint - just and old cheapo I have had years which is running out now - yikes.  When dry, I highlighted it with silver rub and buff, the mounted it on top of the image transfer which I had covered with a piece of 'overhead slide transparency cut to size.

It's stuck together with double sided sellotape

 More to come later
It looks so much better in real life!

I am just 'dipping my toe' back into crafting again, and joining in the monthly postcard swap on UK Stampers forum.  It really is great fun and just wonderful to get a postcard each month.
I have painted my images with water colours to hopefully give it a vintage feel.

Why not join us and make a post card - you'll soon get addicted
