House and Home

I finished this Scrap book LO today, took a picture, I wondered if there would be a challenge it would fit, I am happy to say over at The Rainbow Lady, the challenge is for House and Home, now a dolls house may be lateral thinking, out of the box, but I'm sure it fits the challenge. The story of the House Painters  is on the piece of paper, which I have printed below, because it's too small to be read, even when enlarged.  I started with a 12 inch sq. piece of Kraft card and spritzed it, splashed it, made a good old mess of it with various inks. The title is made from a sheet of alphabet letters for scrap bookers, matted onto red card.  The paint pots are downloads from the internet. I realise not all my followers and visitors are into scrapbooking, I wonder, why not? I hope you still enjoy your visit and I thank you for all of your very kind comments.
If your interested to see more of my Dolls House Properties why not visit Cazro's Mini Properties.
'''I bought myself a small dolls house off E-bay for £8. My intention was to convert it into a Witch's Cottage. Once I had told James all of my plans. without any discussion or negotiations I suddenly realised that the house belonged to James. It was HIS Witch's Cottage, so, to be fair, to Matthew, (his brother), I gave him the choice of a few properties, and he asked for the Pub~ The Nag's Head. On one very hot day in the school summer holidays 2011, we had planned to paint the houses. Appropriate old clothes and hats were worn. Paint put into tubs, off ready to paint. Matthew had decided he didn't like the red bricks on the pub and wanted to paint it white. James and I planned to cover the house in grey, then to add splashes of other paints to make it look real dingy. Granddad helped to paint the difficult bits inside the cottage. Matthew had a great suggestion to add a Broomstick landing pad on the roof, like a helicopter landing, and James said not with a H, it would have to be a B. A great time was had by all.''
