If you had a left over piece of timber that measured 20" x 9" x 1" you'd obviously have to make it into a house wouldn't you?
That's what I thought too.
This is a work in progress, but this is what it looks like so far......
I drew a pointed roof and then cut off the angles. I saved the cut offs, they're useful for later on in the project.
The edges were sanded and then I painted the sides and edges with white acrylic. Next came Heavy Carvable Modelling Paste - I put a thick layer on with a palette knife and then drew wavy lines into it that will be roof tiles. (It might be a stretch to see them as roof tiles at the moment.....)
For the back I sorted through all my design papers and gathered everything with text on it, and then a few pieces just because I liked them. I stuck them on with Mod Podge (thank you for the loan Jacinta!)
Since we have a shed full of off cuts, I might end up with a whole town and not just a tall, skinny, very definitely quirky but loved house.
