Hello everyone!!! I’m back again with another version of the Village Mansion… only this one is a bit more spoooooky!!
I’m amazed by these little houses and get completely immersed while I’m creating. When I’m done… it’s hard to believe they are made of paper!
I tried something different on this one by using some cheesecloth and Distress Grit paste to gain some texture. I was going for a “The stucco has fallen off the walls look” and I think this combination did the trick. I used a variety of Distress paints to color the walls, then went over everything with Black Soot paint to give it a darker tone.
I used Distress Stains and Woodgrain cardstock for the roof tiles. Once the paper was colored and dry, I used the Village Rooftops die to cut out about 28 strips. Once I put them on the roof, I ran my blending tool with a slight amount of Black Soot paint over top to darken them.
I’ve left the embellishments simple… one could really go crazy at this point, but I just used a Cross bones Adornment above the door.
I have put together a video of the process, you can view it below or on our YouTube channel.
