This is my “Home Sweet Home” entry for your Dream Artists’ Village. My passion is anything and everything spooky! I love haunted houses or houses that “appear” to be haunted. Doesn’t every street have one??! Therefore, I chose to create a spooky house that I call, “You can never have too many locks!” In this case, those locks are meant to keep something INSIDE the house. In this piece I used assorted decorative papers, some of which I ripped and distressed, plus assorted metal lock ephemera and I printed a moon image on vellum for the round window. There is a tiny light that can be inserted in the bottom of the house to make the moon window glow eerily (cool). I used pop dots to make the front door bulge out and a little clear embellishment to make the house number “13” stand out. The smoking chimney is a spring and the escaping ghost is paper . There is ribbon around the base that resembles rod iron. There are different images on all 4 sides!!
I have never made a 3d “object” before. This was way TOO MUCH FUN!! I may have to create my own little Haunted Village. I love these challenges because they "challenge" me to try small, manageable projects that are fun!!!
Thanks for this little house pattern.
