Welcome To the Neighborhood (Lots Pics)

Creative Inspirations Paint has helped me think outside of the box-should I say packaging maybe! I found this wonderful House Pattern and just had to play with the design...I use to collect village pieces but have passed on to my children to display now. So I am making chipboard ones.
Pull up a chair and sit back and relax- I have a few steps to share with you on designing this house.
 I actually used chipboard from packaging because it was a good weight and also had white.The pattern was printed and then cut out of the white chipboard.
 I used an embossing tool to crease with a ruler. Spellbinder dies helped me cut out windows without having to use a cutting blade.
 I painted one layer of Autumn Wheat and Brown mixed on a foam brush- I wasn't careful just stroked it on. Then I put the house through my Big Shot with a brick embossing folder. then I went back with Autumn Wheat paint again.
 Next I did the same process as above using Antique Gold CIP Paint- then a checkered embossing folder for the roof.
 This fence is a Tim Holtz die cut- the greenery is a Cheery Lynn Die. Rustic Red CIP paint was used for the shutters and the door, and Ivory paint for the fence
 I placed Raw Sienna CIP paint on vellum for the windows and Liquid Applique for the snow on the roof and fence posts.
What a fun project to work on -thanks to Creative Inspirations paint I could make a realistic looking house. What have you been working on?
