A House of Thrills

It's not too haunted nor too spooky, but this cutely
decorated Thrilling house just says HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
My little house is premiering at Authentique Paper Blog today...have a look:

When I received this Maya Road paper mâché house, it started 
speaking "make me into a haunted house!"...and so, I did.
  I started by painting the piece with an acrylic black paint.  




 For the roof, I cut apart various patterns from the hexagon
 printed paper, Frenzy,and glued it to the form. 
 Next, I cut individual hexagons and attached to sections
of the roof with foam dots.  A sprinkling of iridescent glitter (from Art Glitter)
 gives them a bit of extra POP!


 After cutting squares of paper from the 6X6 Bundle, I added them to the walls of the 'rooms'.
I used a large wood veneer doily shape as the background and base for the clustered embellishment. A small postcard print was cut from the 6X6 bundle sheets (a larger, matching design can be found on the Mystic 12X12 paper).  A couple of stickers from the Details Sticker Sheet were included, as well as two black blooms and leaves from Petaloo!


 A canvas wired bow (from May Arts ribbon) sits perched on top and finishes off the design!

I love this house.  I'm not even sure where he resides now. 
After the Summer CHA show, he was taken home with someone new...I hope they're enjoying :)

See ya'll later!
