Half a sneak peek!





Hello all!  I hope you enjoyed yesterday's project, but it's already time for another PaperArtsy sneak peek. 



And it's a "Part One of Two" peek for a work in progress, the first stages of a project that you won't get to see completed until tomorrow.


Over at the PaperArtsy blog, there's lots of lovely grunge paste, paint, crackliness and rustiness to see - it would be lovely if you have time to hop over and take a look.


The beginning is the most important part of the work.

Okay Alison - jut call me stupid - but how did you stamp the grass and the birds inside of the little square? Does the house come apart so you can stamp it more easily. Of course I am in love with this house - the way you have made the outside look is more than fantastic. Obviously I have been over to the Paper Artsy blog to check this beauty out. Where did you photograph this? I love the brick and the moss. I love little bitty things and very old things.
Just call me rambling Rose.

Sandy said...

Okay - I have been studying this and figured out how to do it - just call me slow. I just try to go too fast because there is always so much to see and to do!
