I've been working on this project for about three months.  I'm really please and have started my second altered house...

I used all sorts of painting techniques, image transfers, and various mediums.  I trashed my craft room as I was in a manic inspired state looking for stamps and charms and paper.  I'll post pictures of the back later and one showing the size.

Oh - and I didn't build the house.  I got it as unfinished wood project at Michaels.  Still Artistic?  This is my first project for this thread.

What are you looking at??

The fringe along the roof adds great dimension. I also really like the paint job, the image between the two windows, and the way you used stamps. Oh, and the layered look on the non-chimney side of the roof - how did you achieve that?

This is getting my brain going in a different direction...there's a bare spot in my garden that needs a magical house.

Nice work!

It's about 16 inches tall and 6 inches wide.  I want to make more, but "work life" has invaded "home life" these days.  Thanks for commenting!
