So...this was my first swap project, and I am posting it on recommendations from the completed project board. The swap was "tiny winter house" which was one winter-themed house under 4 inches in each dimension. I really felt like I wanted to do something clean and sort of minimalist for this project and after some experimentation, decided to go with all white layers of a house. Here are my layers:




Then I had to find some way to present these layers, so I wanted to make them into a book, but I didn't leave enough edge on the left to bind them, so I made a book and each page was a frame that I glued the page into.





I also added some trees at the beginning and end of the book. I hope StickerChick87 likes her book, even if it probably wasn't the 3D house she was expecting! I tried to use a lot of detail and sort of tell a story. about a house. in the winter.

I absolutely love this idea and the way it was executed!! The white paper is perfect and reminds me a lot of the artist Peter Callesen and the way he uses shadow to create contrasts between layers. Awesome job!!  Cheesy

I absolutely love this! I don't know if I would have been able to plan out the different layers nearly as well as you did. I love the white on white and the sweet little wintry tale the book tells. I'm also impressed with your solution for attaching all of the pages together- I think I would have freaked after all of that work, so good for you for figuring out a solution that adds to the overall project!

If I had a Wist, this would be on it Wink
