New Houses

I just finished two more houses with a sea life theme.

I always like to put something inside for the person who looks in the door. This one has open doors like I made on a few of the fiesta ornaments.
This one has a flat decorative door.
With a goldfish inside.
Each one is different.

If you are interested in knowing how these are made, I am writing two articles for Cloth Paper Scissors about it. The project will be broken up into two separate articles in consecutive issues coming out this spring. If the whole project was in one issue, it would probably fill half the magazine. So this will be like when one of the quilting magazines has a how-to for a quilt and it runs in a few consecutive issues.

The first issue will have the step by step process that I used to collage and paint the fabric. The next issue will detail the house construction. I will keep you posted for when the articles come out.

    Wow, I can see why it takes so much writing to explain how to make these — when I look at them, I can’t even figure out how you do it all! Judy, how big are the houses?

  3. The smaller houses are 6″ x 6″ and about 9″ tall.

    How beautiful! I love the painting you did, and what you’ve done with the embossed metal is just incredible. I’ll be waiting for my copy of CPS!

    The metalwork is a fabulous finishing touch! I’ll have to dig out my copper and try the ones that were in the QA gifts issue–now they REALLY appeal!!!

    Judy, Your work is truly magical. I would not take anything for having seen one of your houses in production.
