I know I said Id wait and see when the house came but I think ive made a decision before hand!
Inspired by the Rick Pierce workshop pages and his webshots I have decided that the new house should infact be a Fairy house.
The first pic i found that I loved was Rick Pierce's English Cottage so i thought maybe to follow that style but with more of a fairy theme in and out. Love the thatch , think that would work really well, and the vines too, but brighter and more summery and fairy like obviously, like this delightful house by Julie McLaughlin here with the fabulous flowery feel.
The other house I have i think was a DHE kit which usually has more than 1 floor. This was only made to be 1, so I can do one of 2 things. I can make it a one room witchy house following the other pic shown here by Rick Pierce with lots of rickety wood added, pumpkin patch and cauldron bubbling outsdie. Or do as Debie suggested and build it up abit which is a great idea as I do have this vision of a Witches bedroom so it would be a shame not to have the 2 floors. I hate to make things out of wood so maybe I can try and find a room box to go underneath which once the whole thing is covered in paperclay will make the house an unusual shape?
Ill definalty be starting on the Fairy house first though and wont make a start on the other one until that once complete. I think we have enough projects on the go to just start on 1 more for the time being.
You know what Im like Ill be after lots of help and advice, hope thats ok! I would like to get a thatched look on the roof i think, so any help there will be much appreciated from anyone thats done that?! But for now i await the posty and look forward to all the wonderful things that will happen to the new house. And excited too that Nikki is going to be making fairy minis too, it will be lovely to feature Nikkis work in this house as well as our others!
Thanks for everyones imput and help!!
