Mini House Shrine Swap + New Goodies + a Coupon!
Hi everyone! I'm excited to announce all the fantastic NEW goodies in the shop! Mini House Shrine Kits, Vintage Ruler Charms, and yes, even a Shrine Kit made from vintage rulers! Too much fun.
I couldn't wait to get started making some little houses. They are the center of our latest SWAP too!
Supplies Used: Mini House Shrines, XSmall Frozen Charlotte, Vintage Ruler Charm, Ledger Paper, Diamond Glaze, Black with White Dots Washi Tape, Frozen Charlotte Doll Head, Brass Crown, and Colored Mini Dice.
To make mine, I started by assembling the houses and then I spray painted them white for a nice base coat. For my tall ruler house, I used Washi Tape on the sides (so easy!), stamped the back, and used vintage ledger paper for the roof. On the inside I added my Charlotte with the word "grown" (I covered the text with diamond glaze to protect), a bit of moss, and the glued the vintage ruler charm to the front. To create my second house I used several colors of acrylic paint applied with q-tips. The roof is my favorite part. I attached 2 vintage postage stamps and then covered them in diamond glaze (several coats) to harden. Finally I attached my assemblage bits and added mini dice for feet (my favorite part!). These were so easy and took just over an hour to create. I can't wait to make more for the SWAP!
Loved that the mini dice just happened to match the stamps!
I had so much fun making my houses that I knew you would love it too, so we are hosting a Mini House Shrine Art Swap.
