Bad Girls Project 52 #12... 3D House.

I finally got the latest Bad Girls Project 52 Challenge done.

3~D Homes: {paper, board, fabric, box, metal etc.

Any material choice. All sides must be considered, Art in the round!!}

THEME: Dreams {past/present/future, actualized or not, night/day etc.}

REQUIRED MATERIAL: Buttons {any type/shape/size/number/color/material}

This is my take...

Welcome to Wits' End

I started with the roof... it's a coffee filter (3 actually) sprayed liberally with Indian Corn Glimmer Mist, then sprayed with clear coat shellac (lots & lots & lots) to stiffen it.

The house is a coffee can (Maxwell House... ew!) I painted with 2 coats of tan acrylic paint. I then wrapped a trimmed-to-fit Starbucks Bag around it. I really like the way it crinkled up... I put the bag on before the paint was totally dry (impatient! lol) and it looks really neat-o. The chimney is part of a Starbucks straw with a bit of torn lace 'smoke'.

The front door is part of Starbucks cup wrap (backwards) with a button door and ribbon hinges. Buttons for a walk-way... and climbing roses reaching up from the gardens... 'Gardens' created with Dried Flowers & Moss.

The base is a bio-degradable Planter Liner (like paper mache...) turned upside down.

Welcome to Wits' End sign... Popsicle stick punched with a Crop-o-Dile. Eyelets, broken necklace chain and brads finish it off...

The field of Baking Cup and Button flowers was inspired by THIS video. I found the mini-Cups and just had to get them... so cute!
Bunny in residence... of course!

The Mill Wheel is a piece out of the inside of a broken VCR-tape... the 'water' is blanket binding.

The Quote on the Starbucks bag is what inspired me for the 'Dream' Theme...
I loooooove fleurs & gardening & coffee! They are in my dreams quite often. ;O)

The field of daisies are Martha Stewart Wedding Confetti and the natural of the planter base.

Happy Squirrel on board!
