Stones from egg cartons | Creche | Pinterest. Victoria Miniland - BRICK (Page 2) *Life in Miniature*: Making aged slate roof shingles. This month we have another tutorial from Judy Kingsley of Chelsea, Quebec (check out her fabulous fireplace project that was previously featured.) Here she shows us how to create a beautiful slate-shingled roof using textured cardboard. Click on the photos for a larger view. Materials: Textured pulp cardboard, such as that used in egg cartons or in wine boxes to separate rows of bottles (you can get them from a wine store)Acrylic paints in brown, burnt umber, dark burnt umber, orange, off white, grey, lead grey, lichen grey, etc.Ruler, pencil, scissors, paint brushesPaper for guttering Paint the cardboard in whatever base colour you want for your shingles.

For slate a brown or grey base works best. Let your cardboard dry completely. Once dry, cut out the shingles, varying the length and width. Once the shingles are cut, mix them all in a pile so that you will be picking them out randomly. One side of the roof is finished! View of a dormer window and roof edge.

Victoria Miniland - BRICK (Page 1) Victoria Miniland - Classes Index. Victoria Miniland - Building. Victoria Miniland - 'Egg Carton' Stone Wall or Floor Class (Pg 1) Before applying stones to the wall, draw horizontal lines at various heights..perhaps one at 1 1/2", the next one at 2 1/4", the next at 2 3/4", 3 1/2".

This is to give you a guideline. Mark these lines similarly around the rest of the walls. READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE PROCEEDING so that you will understand the whole process. When applying the stone, Tacky Glue will work, but Grrrip or Fast Grab Tacky makes the job a little easier. Work in one section at a time, trying to make the stones match up to the first line, however, some being under or over doesn't matter and does give it interest.

You may find that one stone will fill in the section, while next it you may have a smaller stone and require two or three to meet the line. Use these lines as a guideline only. When you go to apply the second row of stones, stagger it just as one would when shingling a roof. Paso 7 Antes de la aplicaci?

I found the topiary trees at Michaels craft store. They are place card holders from the wedding section. The house is covered with concrete. This side is just concrete. I painted the trim white, the body of the house is puddy colored(tan) and I aged it. The battery and switch are in the dormer roof. The interior was dreamy to work on! I made the bed from 2 pieces of fencing. I found a canoe at Hobby Lobby. I had to put a couple of glitter trees in there too. The wall of book pages is so perfect for this house. My jar chandelier is my favorite light fixture I've ever made! The Anthropologie Inspired Dollhouse is Musette's future home.

Note: the beeskneescousin is in the process of moving to our new home, Thanks for your patience during the transition Art SpacesTeachers of all sorts love seeing how others organize their space and visually inspire students. I'm always so excited to see the snapshots that people post this time of year. As I took time this week to set up my own spaces, as well as working on the new website I had an idea to create a new page to showcase art spaces from all over.

A database of sorts that would serve as a visual reference for teachers. Teachers of all sorts could take a look at how others use their spaces and share their own space. StudioÉLAN: Medieval Times.

", well I am working on that IN MY MIND, right now. I am seriously avoiding having to work on that staircase in the kitchen which has to be done first, before anything else in that room is started. For Whatever Reason, work on the stairs is scaring the pants off me! I decided to refocus on something Not so intimidating; a distraction until I can work up the nerve to do the stairs. So I decided to work on not only the second floor bedroom, but also the bathroom too. I have been pleasantly surprised that they are both now, very 'Close to Completion', and will be ready to show very soon. I didn't show the photo, but THIS ENTIRE SECTION OF ACETATE WAS GLUED UP INTO THE CURVED TOP OF THE FIREPLACE OPENING. Elizabeth. Glorious Twelfth: Tutorials.

Using Realistic Brick Compound and Stencils Introduction This is a step-by-step guide to creating realistic brick and stone finishes using Realistic Brick Compound and Stencils. The basic principle is very simple and not unlike other types of decorative stencilling. The only real difference is that instead of using paint you will be applying Realistic Brick Compound which produces the authentic look and feel of real bricks or stone. Before starting is important to keep in mind that the Realistic Brick Compound is a very easy material to work with.

Hutch studio. ~ DIY Tulip Tea light ~ I'm always thinking of different ways to use these little battery operated tea lights around the shop.

Tudor-style house design guide. Striking in design and frequently copied, the Tudor style dates back to the 16th century where it shaped construction techniques in the UK. Homes were now built from timber and wattle and daub, where they had previously been made from cob or unbaked earth. The appearance of Tudor buildings reflects the way in which they were constructed, rather than being a result of the builders trying to impose a style. So, if you want your new home to have an authentic appearance, you must appreciate the limitations of the materials and technology used to create the originals.

How Tudor homes were built Traditionally, oak was the main source of timber for construction. Tree trunks were used to make posts and beams, and the thicker branches made up the rafters to support the roof. Unseasoned (green) timber was generally used for the main structure because it was softer, which with the tools available, was easier to work. Types of frame A variation on the types already mentioned is the aisled frame.
