Hi everyone I have an exciting finished project for you, there is this new Sizzix die that I was dying to play with...
You know how much I like houses, right?  Well this one did not dissapoint the new Sizzix Birdhouse die is wonderful and the final result is surprisingly big so here we go, welcome to my messy creative process


here I have the pieces, you have to repeat the sides(2) and the roof (3)to make the bungalow
I had already started on my ferns and blooms

I wanted to play with some textures so I wrapped my house with gauze and used modeling paste to cover it up, trust me when I say it makes for one sturdy foundation.  Once dry your house is amazingly solid!

Since I wasn't done playing with textures I used my folded roof as a pattern to cut my burlap

ok this one's a better photo, I decided not to use the die because I didn't want 3 separate pieces, I wanted a solid one, and I didn't really need the score marks.  It ended up draping beautifully over the paper roof.

and of course you need to work your scallops...

as it was drying out Istarted to play with my gelatos for that perfect turquoise hue I used the Tropical collection, sooo yummy. 

then it was a matter of putting it all together

I just love the finished product!!!
See what I mean about the seamless cut on the roof?

it looks like it was made for the garden, I think a fairy would be so happy here!!!
I put a welcome sign there, just in case, you never know, right?

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you enjoyed my creative mess, LOL
I have used burlap for the burlap love challenge at CCCB
and this yummy color combo from the TSTR, I used the required colors and the twine
I was very inspired with those daisies and how bright and sunny this was
