Creative Soul Retreat Swap. I ended up making 52 of these little houses and know I actually made 53, but can't for the life of me find the other one anywhere ... hopefully it'll turn up sometime because I'd promised to give it to someone ... I might have to make another one.
If you want to see what some of the other little houses retreat delegates have made, feel free to click here.
I cut the houses out of cardboard, then stuck the roof through the cuttlebug to give it some texture, I added patterned paper that I stamped with text in black and chicken wire in grey (which is quite feint). The roof has been painted in rust, a sticker added across the base and some german scrap on the edge of the roof. The bird is hand cut out and all 3 eggs, some painted muslin forms the nest. I then used spanish copper rub 'n' buff to go over the edges, the sticker and the german scrap to give it a rustic look.
Only 22 hours and 56 minutes until I leave for the airport and go to the Creative Soul Retreat ... I'm very excited ... must go pack now ... I have left it to the last minute of course.
