I have a few projects in the making and the first one I'd like to share with you all is this handmade recycled cardboard house. I will be decorating it with a Christmas theme, and here's hoping I have it made and decorated before Christmas.
So as you can see below, I have made a start on my house, I have used a box from one of my daughters' Avon deliveries but you can use an empty box you have laying around. My measurements for this are: width is 12 inches and the height to center roof point is roughly 18 inches. The sides of the house are around 1 1/2 inches (I used the width of my ruler and just cut so not really measuring).
Then using the hot glue gun, I glued the sides, top and bottom and the roof onto the cut out base of the house.
So now the back and sides have dried, I am going to give the rooms on the front a coat of paint. I have decided to use a pale blue colour for the rooms. I have mixed an antique white (a cream colour) with ultramarine blue to give me the pale blue for inside the walls. I will have to give the rooms with the paddle pop sticks a couple more coats of paint to bring them into line with the other rooms. The colour of the sticks were a bit bright, so they definitely will need more coats of paint.
Now the fun starts and that is decorating the individual rooms with a Christmas theme.

I thought I would like to share some of my art journal pages as this being the first blog I'm doing. Please enjoy... This is a page done in my 'quote journal'. I use this journal to write down quotes I like and on the odd pages I will do art.
