Working on Christmas House
Work on the Christmas House continues as I start to add the base paper to the paper mache shape. I have removed all of the accessory pieces and scraped the surface of the main shape to make it smooth so no bumps or ridges show through the paper. I am using the new Graphic 45 paper collection called "A Christmas Carol".You know how much I love Graphic 45 papers and this collection is so colorful!
After the shape is covered with the base paper both front, back and sides - it is time to pick different patterned papers that will cover the accessory pieces that I choose to use again and glue to the front of the basic shape.
All the accessory pieces will be edged and a border all around on the front of each piece using a blue marker that matches the main color in the base paper before the patterned paper is glued on to them. (Just like I do with all of my fussy cutting pieces - no edges without color!)
Thank you for visiting my blog today! Tomorrow I have photos of the finished Christmas House. We have rain here in this part of WI today - very dark and dreary this morning. I need to make some cards today to send to my great grandchildren - will be using lots of color I think! :<)
