Altered Art house

I have had this plywood house for a couple of years just waiting for the right papers to dress it up and voila - along came Graphic 45 with Olde Curiosity Shoppe. I love the eccentricity of these papers and find it works perfectly with my style of work!

Once again - I use black gesso to coat the house prior to covering with paper and modpodge and then adding all those final bits and pieces :) Enjoy

Life as always has been extremely busy over the last month - we have had end of school term 1, Easter, Chionia and Gary's birthday, nieces engagement, nephews birthday, SIL birthday and lost track - still have Jess's birthday, sisters and nieces birthdays to go this month before taking off for a few days to SA to meet up with the best bunch of scrappers :) Can't wait!!!!!

Anyway - Chionia had her birthday at the Great Escape at Hillarys and seeing we haven't had rain really here in Perth for months what does it decide to do the day of her party but rain!!! Oh well the sun came out to play after a little while :) Also have been very inspired by another friend of mine who makes the most beautiful cakes and lolly bars - as I have said if she lived over here and not in Sydney then she would have done the girls cakes!! Lolly bags full of fun stuff and not too much sugary crap - just a pity people don't rsvp as I ended up having a few spare.....

My first attempt at fondant ganache and all that!! Not bad - actually had fun playing and learning whilst sticking etc!! :P and cake pops rofl!! Next time will be smaller but very yummy!! (recycled cake from water party to family do :) removed pink and added red rofl!!) Also went with a red and white theme - after looking on line decided I could make the Martha Stewart pompoms which are really easy and mum made the beautiful bunting :)
