Altered House

I got this from a show a while ago as I think they are just so cute. Its taken a while to decide what to do with it but here you go. I had a moment or two in the early hours as I am an insomniac as you may know.

I used Crafty Individuals Papers, extra strong d/s tape, metal, beads, silicone glue regular craft supplies, and some cute metal people.

I started by covering the house with the papers
Cut out the door
Covered the door shape with metal and embossed some details on then inked it lightly with Stazon

Did the same with the windows

Stamped some faces onto scraps of the papers and fixed behind the windows

Cut a piece of metal to cover the roof with a bit for tucking under, it holds just by folding round but I used D/S tape to be sure. I embossed the detail then went round again inside the line for definition, sanded lightly and secured to the roof section.

Lastly the little people, I coloured them with permanent markers and stuck on with silicone as they are raised so its the best for a good contact with the house. Oh forgot I made a wee crown to go over the door with a scrap of metal.

I covered the cover of the book with metal and hand embossed a name and some flowers, colour with Stazon and permanent markers and covered the inside pages with more of the papers. Think it will make a nice little pressie for someone :-) It would make a good house moving gift for a few photo's maybe
