Well, I finally did it. I finished the spooky house I’m going to use as my demo model. I hope to have an art sale of my Halloween houses with a non-profit charity as the beneficiary and I needed a model to get things going.
I am going to share it with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is “Anything but a Card”. Thank goodness my house is not a card so it fits well with this theme and I don’t really have to apologize for posting a house – again. I only have about an hour to get it in for this challenge.
Construction of the Abandoned Italianate Mansion Halloween House – Basic Structure
Windows and Siding on the Abandoned Italianate Mansion Halloween House
The bay windows were probably the hardest thing to make because I used on piece of acetate behind them that was hard to bend. It was kind of a pain.
I had to make my own crackle paint because they don’t make my favorite Distress Picket Fence crackle paint any more. I coated a piece of black cardstock with glue then painted it with white gesso, then repeated the process. The paint really does look like old peeling paint on an abandoned house so it worked out, but it took a long time. Then I cut thin strips on my guillotine cutter.
