WOAH. It's been a while since I laid a finger on my dear ole' model house! Not only was I distracted and exhausted by... well... LIFE... but I also got into a rut. I hate ruts. The only good thing about them is getting out of them! ~LIKE NOW~
Today I was working on the big room in my house. Here are the little steps I took to making the brick wall. I may work some more on it, but I'm not totally sure yet. First I laid all the bricks! They are made the same way as before and they are also the same size!
I painted them in reds and browns first because I thought it would be more realistic this way.
I then grouted the bricks, just like before. This time was a bit harder because there was so much more area to cover.
I then painted over the bricks in a cream color. I liked the way this color looked with the green wallpaper. Oh! Also, ignore the wallpaper that has paint on it. I have more paper, so I will just redo that. Haha! Sometimes even I get impatient. Anyways... I left the cream paint kind of messy because I didn't know if I would like the texture or not, and as of right now I think I may put down some more paint. Its kinda too much texture.
I also found this other wallpaper in the craft store. (Well.... actually it's scrap-booking paper.) I may not use it in this project but I thought it would make a nice wallpaper someday!
Once again, I apologize for my absence. Sometimes I just get so busy... but yet at the end of the day there really isn't much to show for it. It is a crazy phenomenon that seems to be pretty common. Especially among us artists! Haha!
I hope you all are doing well! Oh! I also listed some cake boxes in my Etsy store. I will make a post about them another day, but you can check them out HERE if you want! -
Thanks for stopping by!
