Well this has taken 5 days to do!!
From this photo, a wooden village scene, that I
bought 2 Christmases ago from Hobbycraft,
to the photos below!!
I painted it with Gesso first and had to leave it to dry.
Then I did one coat of grey Acrylic paint where I wanted it
and had to leave that to dry.
I then painted parts of the windows, brickwork and
part of the church. with Paper Artsy Chalk Acrylic paint
Then had to let it dry!!
Then I decided the grey was too dark. So I painted over it
with a lighter shade. That needed two coats and of course,
drying time between coats!!
Then some gold paint
on the clock face and the lanterns.
I used a spatula to spread some white paste, onto
the 'floors', the roofs and trees, as snow and
topped it with some glitter.
Put the batteries in and turned the lights on and then
turned the key for the Christmas song played
and the centre piece rotating!!
Phew!! Hope you are still awake!!
Sold it straight away, when I sent a text
photo of it to friends and family.
So I will be delivering it to it's new owner soon.
Hope you have enjoyed the few beautiful days
we have had this week.
Thank you for your lovely messages on
my last post, also the ideas for whiskers for
my dogs and cats!! I have used Pauline's at
Crafting at Cotnob idea first.
I used to make jewellery and had a rummage and
found a whole real of beading thread!!
It worked out fine, as I could also make it
black using a Permanent Marker Pen.
So thank you for all your ideas and will try
out the others too.
