Nichos are roadside shrines in Mexico. Joyce at Paper Forest now stocks them so I had to give it a go. The photo does not do it justice, as is usually the case. I rusted the case to begin with, then decorated it with gems. The image of Madonna & Child was painted for WYD held here in Sydney this year. It is a modern image but I think fits the Nicho nicely. The doors close but I am not happy with them yet, so will upload another photo when I have completed it.

The House to house the houses

This is my house to house my houses!!!! The above photo is the back & sides, the photo below is the side & front door. This the flat version, keep scrolling down & you will see the house when it has been constructed.

This is the right hand side.

The left hand side

The front door.

The back.
Well this looks like the backyard dunny only prettier!
This is a first. I cut the walls, floor & roof from mat board. Painted Watercolour paper with Golden paints. Put them through the cuttlebug. I joined the sides & back with extra tacky jac paper then put the embossed papers on, so it did two jobs, holding the building together & attaching the papers.
I used Grungeboard for hinges. Then I used various die cuts to decorate the house.
