Well I am not sure how much I am going to have a chance to do for the rest of the day. I have to start packing and getting ready to go the mountains with my family! SO... I wanted to show you guys what I've been up to since yesterday.
I finished shingle-ing all the roof!
Here is a closer look at the roof so far. I like the way all of them are slightly different shades, so I will try to keep that aspect of them, but I do want to make them all darker. I will try to apply a dark wash over all of them, so that it takes the color down a few notches.
Also, I couldn't get the shingles to bend without breaking... I even tried to soak them in water overnight and they still splinter. So.... I will do this! I am going to take the trim that was meant for the corners of the house, and trim the roof with them! I figured that since they are a bit too wide for the lower portion of the house, that wouldn't matter on the roof- especially when I add dark paint and moss on it. Haha!
I will trim all of the front corners with this. I am planning on doing something different for all of the back trim.
Another thing I have coming up on my list is the flower boxes! These are what the kit ones look like.
Here is what one would look like under the window.
They are perfectly fine, but not really what I want to go with. I want to make some that are similar to the outside walls of the house. I am making all these things for flowers and plants.... I hope I will be able to find some plant-life that looks right!
Also, here is something I am working on for some new miniatures I want to make. They are just boxes, but I wanted to play around with some scraps of paper to get the size and design I need.
I will continue to make Fall items, but I am also planning on making Christmas items soon! I love Christmas, and with all of the things I want to make, I think I NEED to start soon. :D
Anyways, the box is just a prototype- so expect a better version of it the next time you see it! :)
I mainly wanted to let you guys know what was going on! I am not sure if I will have internet access over the weekend, so I might not get to blog again until Monday. O___O
Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to let me know what you think by leaving a comment! I respond to them all, even if it is to just say Thanks!
