I just finished a bakery for Alana, Karissa's little girl.
I did a mix of brick and siding on this house.
I wanted a total vintage feel for this house. Inside and out.
Downstairs is more aged. I made stains on the wallpaper with a brown ink pad. I also scrubbed the wallpaper until it wore off and moved it around while it was still wet to get bumps and lumps in it.
The ceiling is textured. I have a nice seam running along to add age here too. Imperfection makes it look more authentic. No real old has is perfect. So I try to add little touches that would really be in an old house with character.
I made a tall, skinny fireplace for a more Victorian look. The frame for the painting is a Christmas ornament.
I used book binding to paint a design for a rug.
I made some bakery sweets too. I made everything out of regular clay and paint.
I think the upstairs will be quite cozy when it's all furnished.
That's one more done! Wait!!!!
I forgot the flower box!
Now it's done!
Next, I'll show you a Marie Antoinette Hameau inspired little cottage. I should get it done today.
Until next time!
