Tiny Little houses

Hi everyone!

It's Majo here today and I'd like to share my newest home decor with you. I was so inspired by the tiny houses from the Tim Holtz collection with Sizzix, that I just had to have them on my candle tray. I love this neutral look for my home decor. 

I cut the shapes from cream cardstock, added some old book paper with Gel Medium and covered everything with gesso.

 In my next step I used different stamps to create my background together with Archival Ink Shadow Grey, Pale Ochre and Versafine Toffee.

  After I adhered the sentiments and the Paper dolls with pop dots,  I used strips of my Miracle Tape tape to build the houses together.

I stamped and heat embossed the roof with very chunky embossing powder, I had to add powder several times, before it had the texture I desired. 

I made flaps from Washi Tape to adhere the roofs to the base. Thanks to my lovely teammate Tera for the recommendation!

I have a tray with glasses for candles, which I have redecorated many times over, i.e. Christmas, Halloween, Easter etc, now it's a more general theme I can use for a while regardless of any occasion.

As you can see, I left the backside undecorated, this way I can come up with some other embellishments if I get tired of the dolls. It also shows you that sometimes I don't look at my image before stamping and turn it upside down 😏

Have a closer look:

Some little flowers cut from Glassine Paper and crumbled up.

 Thank you for stopping by today!
xx Majo.
