Hello Crafty Friends and welcome to a whole new month of crafty fun!
Our March Kit - All the Leaves Are Brown - is all about Autumn..... because down here in Oz, Autumn is just around the corner... and isn't it just the BEST season?! Well, I think so anyway.
Today Donna joins us with her first March project - a gorgeous little Autumn Cottage.
Hello wonderful people , well here I am again to show you
what I created with the wonderful March Kit for Aunty Vera.
As soon as I saw this kit I knew it was destined to be a cottage..
So the first thing I did was make a template. Easy right, 4
simple pieces of paper,
only Do Not do what I did and
that was adhere the paper on before it was put together
BEFORE checking which side it actually goes on;
YEP! you guessed it, was on the wrong side lol
Love this little Cottage...
The photos do not do justice to this little cottage..
I die cut the door 3 times with Black cardstock, Autumn Day and Stitched Floral.
I also cut the clock with Black cardstock and again with Stitched Floral
I used the gorgeous Washi Tape for
all the corners.
Then flowers were made with the Washi Tape.
Two brads for door handles.. Don't the flowers look
gorgeous with the gold Washi Tape..
Side view of the cottage..
I love this paper and adding a border from one
of the papers finishes it off nicely..
Can you see the hats and mushrooms shine?
The other side.
How cute is this Doodle-pops Country Crow...
Back of the cottage..
I love this tree with all
the leaves falling off it..
I fussy cut a flower and added a Washi tape one on top
to give a little dimension..
I used Ranger Distress Crackle paint to give the tree
a bark texture.
I thought the die from Sizzix - Chevron by Tim Holtz was perfect
for the roof..
I Placed holes in the roof and the cottage to lace
Jute String through to keep it altogether and
also to carry...
You can see the Washi Tape on the corners here..
How big the cottage actually is..
