Recently I was partnered up with the fabulous Mistress Jennie in the Be Awesome (Redux) Swap.  While checking out her Pinterest I saw that she had an entire board devoted to the Burrow - the Weasley's home in the Harry Potter tales for the 2 people in the world who aren't familiar Cheesy  Coincidentally the Burrow is one of my personal favourites as well so I instantly had a wonderful idea to render it sort of 3Dish out of paper.  I don't have any inprogress pictures unfortunately, it was A LOT of cutting and glueing.  and a little artistic license Cheesy   Sorry for the fuzzy pictures, Mistress Jennie has way better ones in the Be Awesome swap gallery

in a repurposed shadow box, that I lined with tissue pattern paper and painted.  The sky is painted with watercolours


one side.  The top addition is painted watercolour paper with coloured pencil on top to make the boards.  The roof pieces/window frames were all made from collage paper that I made and painted.  The windows are resin paper.


This side shows more of the wonky 3D-ishness


The bottom house of the Burrow was made out of cardboard covered with pattern paper that I gel mediumed on.  Then covered with Golden fiber paste, painted and weathered. 

I kind of want to make all the things out of paper and glue now Grin

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

This totally captures the feel of The Burrow and brings it to life. Love.

It makes me think of all the children's book I read as a kid- Pippi and Karlsson etc.

It's just perfect and so awesome! And now You need to make everything out of paper, of course! Smiley
