Glitter House Lane

Hello crafty friends!  It's Susan on the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts blog today, sharing a bit of cold weather cheer during this August heat.

I've created a wee Glitter House Lane using 3 House Ornament Kits, accessories, and a platform.

I used 3 house ornament kits - primed 2 with gesso after taking them off the original chipboard sheet, and primed the third while still attached.  Both needed touch-up gesso on edges after gluing together.

I assembled chimneys, a dormer, and porches, and added those and window trims to the houses and painted with gesso.  In the future, I'll wait to gesso until after this step.

I used the 12" x 4" platform for the lane.  Gesso'd white and added coordinating scrapbook paper to the bottom (photo below). 

I used most of 3 sets of House Ornament Fence and cut them down for better scale.  Once all the glue dried I gesso'd the fence white and then painted it light teal.  Once *that* dried, I finished the platform with white acrylic paint.

I painted the houses in a variety of pastel colors and added white to the tops for snow.  I used white glue to paint small areas and added clear glass glitter.  This was a long process with all 3 houses and the platform, but patience was the key.

Earlier, I cut out vellum shapes for the inside walls, and after all paint was done I added glue to the edges and slid the vellum pieces up through the bottom openings.
