DIY Miniature House/Tea House

I am always a fond of miniature houses because of their details. I came across this diy miniature tea house on Amazon and I bought it right away. I thought some of the furniture and tea boxes are premade, but I had to build everything even the thinnest pieces. At first, I was having a hard time because I am not used to putting together something that are too small, but I had fun. It will surely test your patience. Overall, it turned out beautiful. The tea house has lights and music box. Please check out Cutebee’s miniature houses on Amazon.


Gradient color effect using Dylusions Paint


Hi everyone! I had fun creating this tag/bookmark. I love how the background colors blend together. The tag is from Tim Holtz Alterations tag collection from Sizzix (2 3/8in x 4 3/4in). I used dylusions paints from Ranger ink for the background and splatter some black, white, blue, red, and yellow acrylic paints to add interest. Dylusions paint are blendable and dries quickly to a matte finish which I like and the fun part is using my fingers to blend the colors. Instead of smoke coming out from the chimney I stenciled star shapes using texture paste and used my kids star stencil. For the house, I used textured cardstock and applied acrylic paint and stenciled it with texture paste using Tim Holtz layering stencil. I also added sentiment stickers from Tim Holtz idea-ology. For the final touch I outlined the house, stars, and sentiments to make the whole thing pop. I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.
