So this was fun.
Thanks to Kristin's heads up, I was able to sign up for Jacqueline's Tiny House Swap. As usual, my idea changed a LOT by the time I was done. That's the fun part. Or so I keep telling myself. With gritted teeth.
Inspiration came from Laurent Chehere's photographs, although I'm a little embarrassed to say so - mine is so pedestrian in comparison. So don't compare. In fact, don't even go to that link. Just pretend I came up with this all by myself
The inside of the house shrine was going to be decoupaged. I spent one Saturday afternoon just copying great black-and-white historic etchings of sky. But you know what? Once assembled with a roof, it was so depressing. So grey, and dark, and somber. Sophisticated, maybe? But just not happy.
So, bright blue ombre it was. Pearlescent blue, in fact.
Then I was going to make the little house out of Sculpy. Or maybe use an N-scale house meant for railway models. And then I saw Karen Corbin's little house sets. They're amazing. All I did was assemble, paint, and get all sketchy on the roof.
And a tiiny little kite - house #3. The rules were to include three tiny houses of any type.
It went out last Saturday, just one day late! That's not bad, for me...
Now back to work deadlines...
