Happy Belated Halloween!
I wasn't able to finish My Gothic Halloween House. But I did finish it enough to set it out next to my huge cardboard house with fake flickering votives in each room to add an eery glow.
I had a lot of fun working on this house!
I really liked the scrapbook paper that I used for the interior...
I covered the back with wood pieces to contain the candle glow. The reverse side is papered.
This is my favorite paper...
Oh and I like this one too!
In the kitchen I used the black and white tile floor that came with my Queen Anne Row House.
Painted the Roses Black. I liked the little bits of color showing through.
I primed the trim with Orange and the body with purple then covered in Crackle Paint before the final grey/black coats. Didn't crackle as much as I liked. I decided to keep the orange primer showing on the edges.
Printed out some orange tinted windows on transparencies. Wasn't able to complete all the windows.
I will put this house away and finish it next Halloween.
I managed to get my self a part-time job while the kids are in school. So unfortunately less time for mini-making!
