I've been a bit blue lately... Hubby went abroad with my Dad for a week and I really missed him! I sat around the house moping, and didn't even look at scrapbook paper (shock, horror!).
Anyway, before he went away on holiday I finished making a little Christmas House based on the BirdHouse Mini I had made following Laura's instructions. The Christmas House is a lot smaller, and the album/book inside is a lot different.
Everything was made with paper except for the little robin on the back window sill (that was an old Christmas Cake decoration from when I was a little girl). The slipping snow on the roof is made from white paper, inked and then glazed. I overdid the glaze in some areas so that it would drip and look like it was melting snow.
Even the door had a little wreath and a letter box that opened. Of course, everything was stickled :)
The snowman was papier mache - quite a difficult task, as he is only about an inch and a quarter tall!
The tree took me hours! It's made from about 400 little punched leaves all glued to cardboard 'skirts' glued around a tube of cardboard. I thought it would be so frustrating making this... but it was so therapuetic!
