My Halloween House 2015 Continues to Evolve


It always takes many days to finish one of my altered art house projects, but it still is amazing when I spend 6 - 8 hours a day, multiple days, and find still more to be done! Today's photos are of the trim on the roof. First I added the white patterned paper strips to the roof . . .

then added the black polka dot strips to the chimney.

I wanted a decoration of some kind hanging down from the eaves of the roof and so I took a strip of the green patterned paper that contained a solid design, folded it in half lengthwise and then fussy cut the edges of one side of the strip.

Added to the house roof they were very pretty - so continued all around.

Then I added two of the larger flowers, that I fussy cut from the printed paper I had used to cover the outside walls of the house, to the centers of the dormers.

Good thing I love fussy cutting! :<)

I didn't like that the underside of the green patterned paper used for the overhang showed from underneath and it was a very bold, bright pattern. So back to more measuring for more strips, this time in the white patterned paper that I had used for the trim on the top of the roof.

Then I used a black marker to color all of the undersides of the fussy cut edges of the overhang. Whew! I'm a perfectionist yes, but I love my projects when they're done! :<)

Now it looks much better! Think I am almost finished? Think again! More photos tomorrow!
