House Hooks Project

You're gonna love this one!

Another tutorial that will take you right through this project is on the PaperArtsy Blog today.


I have to say, this is my favorite project in a long time. I love houses, and vintage images of kids are just perfect for the front of this little piece.

House Hooks

This is the wooden plaque that is just too cute to believe. It's approximately 14 x 7 inches and ready to go.


The tutorial will take you through the layout and prepping of everything using chipboard to Masonite fences and frames  from Retro Cafe Art....start to finish.



This is the House #1.


 And here's House #2.
You'll be able to dig in your stash of chipboard pieces, trims, and little bits of ephemera to make this project your own.

This is a detailed picture of House #3.





And this is House #4 that we'll put together to wrap it all up.

So ask questions and leave comments if you have any.

I'll get back to you with answers and I'll cheer you on!
So get ready for some Mixed Media Stamped FUN!
Let me know if you have any questions or comments here. I'll be traveling, but I'll do my best to get back to you. So I'd love to hear from you as I'm touring around!

I'm another huge fan of little houses (brought up surrounded by my mother's dollshouse collection) - and of your blog header too! - and this is just wonderful!! Looking forward to diving in to all the details...
