It Takes a Village by Rachel Harries



It takes a village or actually perhaps a small town... this week I've started on my own little town of storage pots, I know I'm going to be expanding soon but here's my start. I so enjoyed making samples for the debut of these recently that I had to get my own.

I started by sticking the pots together with That's Crafty! Adhesive.

Once this was dry I then used That's Crafty! Light Texture Paste through the That's Crafty! Alphabet Stencil

I then used some packing card and cut out some window and door shapes which I then adhered to the houses and also added some twigs I found on my walk.

I then gave everything a coat of That's Crafty! Black Gesso and then started adding layers of That's Crafty! Multi Surface Paint making sure to dry between layers.

I then used a layer of Daily Art Bitumen

I then used some wax to finish off in places.

and there we have it this is the start of my property venture and like I said I don't think it will be the last time I get hold of That's Crafty! Tidy Houses
