my little houses with a tick

< align=" centre"> collection of houses

I finally have them finished. My little houses for the Creative Soul Retreat in March, Melbourne. It was fun setting up a production line, something I don't do very often. I love that they are still unique in there own way. I painted each house with graduating colour, sanding back the edges to give an aged feel and then stamped them with an imprint I've made from lace. The image of the heart is one of my favourites, I use it often and it came from a painting I did a few years ago. All the houses are embellished with buttons, beads and curly wire.

Now that I have these finished I can focus on getting supplies together and the finer details of going. I never used to make lists, but I've found them mighty handy since I've discovered how much more organized I can be when I do use them.

Here is to another thing to tick off my list.
