Little Houses - Easter Home Decor by Susanne

Hi everyone!
It's Susanne here today and I'd like to share my newest Easter home decor with you. I was so inspired by the tiny houses from the Tim Holtz newest collection with Sizzix, that I designed my own houses in my Silhouette studio. I love this neutral look for my easter home decor.


I cut the shapes from craft cardstock, added some old book paper with Gel Medium and covered everything with gesso.



In my next step I used stamps from the Gather Together , Birdies, Antique Botanicals and Feathered Friends sets together with Archival Ink Jet Black and Coffee.


I added some earthy colour tones with Martha Steward acrylic craft paint and DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics.


Of course I wanted to have a little bit of three dimensional texture, too. So I picked the DecoArt Media Crackle paste and add a some of it here and there with different stencils.


You can achieve an amazing effect with the DecoArt Media Antiquing Cream. Add it all over the textured areas, let it dry and wipe it off with a baby wipe.




I stamped my main images on tissue paper  and adhered them with Gel Medium.
(Bird is from the B for Bird set, Egg is from the Big Egg).


After I adhered the sentiments I used double sided tape to build the houses together.


Finally I added some shadows to the buttom with a dark watersoluble crayon.


Here are some close-ups:












Thank you for stopping by today!
xx Susanne.
