Tim Holtz Village Dwelling Dies for Haunted Holtzville
First Altered Village Dwelling House for Halloween
Altered Tim Holtz Village Brownstone Die
The basic house die is the Village Brownstone. I altered it by using 2 back pieces so I could make a different, less ornate door which you can see below.
Siding for the Village Dwelling House
Then I made rough sawn plank siding with the Tim Holtz torn notebook die and painted the pieces with black gesso covered with Picket Fence crackle paint. The edges of the planks were distressed with Black Soot distress paint.
Village Rooftops for Shingles
Fencing to Protect the Haunted Holtzville Miniature House
The fence - the border, rather - is the retired Tim Holtz On the Fence edge die, but sometimes still available online. It is made of 2 layers of cardboard glued together and distressed with Ground Espresso and Black Soot Distress Paint. Using a section of the fence I cut out 2 cross pieces to look make it look like a gate. I put 2 cardboard strips behind the gate section to make it stick out beyond the fence. I also drew in some nail holes just for a fun detail.
