Hi, I hope 2015 has started out as you wanted, the weather
over Christmas and new year has been amazing hasn't it!
I made this little pixie house when I was on leave, using a 3D ,MDF box house
From Imagine If , see there other fantastic MDF products

I covered it on the out side with paper .

And painted the inside

Covered the floor with a wood look paper

For the windows I cut a over lay to size and glued it to the window

Next I used a cake board  for the base
This strip of chipboard fence , I trimmed it down and painted it
to use as a ladder

I traced where the house will sit as I wanted it smothe

Using course texture paste I covered the rest, to give
a rough look

I run the ladder/fence through the cuttle bug

Once the texture paste had dried ,I painted it with gesso

I didn't have the right green so mixed two together to give a
uneven color green 

I found a strong twig to use as my tree

I drilled a hole for it to fit into

Put it all together, I added a inside light and some fairy lights to the tree

Below is the night time photos
It looks pretty cool at night, makes a good night light :)
Thanks for taking the time to visit and check out Imagine Ifs very
cool products. Stay tuned in as Jo has a few very cool new things
coming up this year.......... My lips are sealed hehehehe

Paint candles and decorate to your likening, whilst they are

Think of others at christmas

Hi all . I always try to do something nice for some one, at lest once a week, it doesn't have to be huge ,
it could be as simple as a hug ,having a coffee with or buying a coffee for some one.

warm fuzzies so you get something back as well.
