Individual Houses

This little house reminds me of a fairy house, with its arched door. The door is copper, with a button doorknob. I used an insulated staple (whatever THAT is!) to attach a paper charm. When I painted it, I wrote words into it.
This is my favorite roof so far, with the dangly charms hanging off the texturized copper.
The door is a mini canvas, with a nail doorknob and a charm hanging from it. The window is a piece of acetate that had various alcohol inks sprayed on. I decoupaged the wood structure with actual house plans.
The roof on this one is an antique ruler, cut in half. The "doorknob" is a drawer pull that didn't work out for its original purpose.

When I painted this, I etched in words. I made the book before, and it has a Home theme to it. The heart is cut out of felt, which is a new texture for me, and I love it.

I've really enjoyed working on these houses, but I think it's time to return to some canvases or boards now.


  1. Boy you sure got a lot of mileage out of this idea. Nice work.
