Altering the House

Nov 5, 2011

I feel like I’m burn­ing the can­dle at both ends, right now. I’ve been work­ing on spe­cial projects, writ­ing instruc­tions for three class­es that I will be teach­ing, next week­end at The Crafty Scrap­per, gath­er­ing sup­plies to kit for the class­es and try­ing to fin­ish up this Hal­loween Mini Album. So tonight I fin­ished alter­ing the house and thought I would share it now instead of wait­ing until Mon­day.

I cov­ered the major­i­ty of the chip­board house using this Hal­loween 2011 pat­terned paper by JBS Mer­can­tile. The small sec­tions are per­fect to alter the house and pump­kin. The owl and stars on the roof are from this pat­terned paper.

After I cov­ered the house with pat­terned paper I sand­ed and inked the edges using a brown ink. Then I attached the pat­terned paper of the kids onto the back of the house so it looks as though they’re peek­ing out the win­dow.  Using Fab­ri Tac, I attached a piece of Sin­gle Ruf­fle Cro­chet Trim by Maya Road as an awning and accent­ed it with black self adhe­sive gems. The pol­ka dots and stars are accent­ed with Dia­mond Stick­les. Remem­ber, you will need to cov­er the back of the house where the part that sticks up above the album page shows. 

I cut out and attached one owl on top of anoth­er using foam squares. I like the dimen­sion it gives to the top of the roof. I light­ly accent­ed around the eyes, wings and tum­my using Dia­mond Stick­les.

I applied adhe­sive to the mini pump­kin and cov­ered it with pat­terned paper from the mini pat­tern sheet. I sand­ed and inked the edges using a brown ink and then accent­ed the stars using Dia­mond Stick­les. I then attached all three items to the house with a strong liq­uid adhe­sive.

Now, we are ready to attach the altered maple leaves, pump­kins and house to the pages and accent the album using those spe­cial Hal­loween pho­tos and addi­tion­al embell­ish­ments.
