Hi Everyone!

How are you all?  I'm
exhausted.........spent a
fair amount of time today
searching for the shed key.
All I wanted to do was to
see if it would be possible
to store some paintings
in there...............aaargh!

Cue Jane Castle to the
rescue .....

"Having sorted a couple of drawers
 out in the craft room I reminded 
myself of a wonderful pack of 
Tando Creatives Whimsical Houses 
so decided to have a play and create 
a wall hanging for my shed and 
back gate keys.

I cut a piece of wood to the required
 size and sanded well before giving
 it a libral coat of chalk ink. 

Having decided on which houses to use
 I then gave them a base coat of 
white gesso and then began painting the 
various parts in bright colours.

Then using various PaperArtsy stamps,
 inks, stencils and grunge paste began to
 decorate each of the pieces.

The piece of wood was then lightly sanded 
again and 2 holes made to screw
 in the cup hooks. 

A Shrink Plastic key was made using 
the stamp from HotPicks 1010 and 
once heated a little Treasure Gold 
was added.

A hole was made in the 2 roofs so
 I could attach some wire for hanging 
and this was done before glueing the
 houses to the wood.

 I then decided I needed some trees, so 
inking 2 leaves from Tando Creatives 
Mini Leaves 2 was the final addition 
to this project.

I'm very pleased with how this turned out
 it's fun, practical and different to anything
 in the shops. 

Have fun creating X"

Thank you Jane - your timely
project is going to save me
so much time spent looking
for the keys!

First I need to visit the SALE
