I was feeling neglectful of my crafting, so I took the last few nights off of working on the big house to work on my wee one
I now realize the most difficult part of wee house making is trying to get good pictures
I've never worked with clay or paperclay before so I ended up redoing most of of small items night #2, but it went much faster the second time through - and they are much sturdier Live and Learn.
I was able to get the wood floor completed using the veneer tip that I saw on an earlier post and began working on my kitchen.
This is supposed to be a gnome house - I am making it "pioneer-ish", the gnomes fab stuff out of found farm objects.
The utility table I picked up at my local dollar store and gave it a paint job, other items made out of paperclay. Carrot slices and a mushroom being prepped for dinner (human sized, not gnome sized), little oven mitts ready and waiting I made all the cookware (hopefully) solid enough to be played with, if my house turns out decent looking I intend to give it to my niece for Christmas next year (and then get to making my other nieces and nephews one).
Tree branch spiral staircase (I realized afterwards that the scale is a bit small but I liked it and didn't want to tear it apart.... tall gnomes will have to stoop a bit going upstairs
And after I got bored with the inside, I have started doing some outside work to change it up a bit. I will be using egg cartons for the stonework and am still going to see if I can make a tin roof out of soup cans ... wish me luck !!
