House of Stars...

I was doing a bit of tidying.. (only a bit mind you, life is tooo short to go the whole hog with tidying....) and I found a little wooden box with compartments.I think it was the box that some little coat hangers came in, but whatever it started off as, it became my ideal excuse to stop tidying and make something!!!  I made a small house...
Very quick (well I was supposed to be doing something else......!) make, this one. I used spray inks in turquoise green and pink to dye the box and three bits of driftwood. I also cut out some stars and they got the spray and splat treatment too...
I doodled on the stars to make them stand out a bit, then added a tiny fairy person....
I put a star on the apex of the roof, then added a word. I know, I know....'star' is a bit of an obvious word to add, but I have a fondness for the literal.......!!!!
Have a great week everyone!
Love Trish xxxxx


  1. Hi Trish, your house is gorgeous, love how you have incorporated the driftwood into it too. Beautiful colours and design, as ever.

    BTW, I am thoroughly enjoying using your new DVD, I am having such fun with it and have loved learning how you do things.

  2. Love your transformed box. Great colours!

  3. Well I'd say that's a LOT more worth while than tidying... I love what comes out of avoiding the dull stuff!

  4. Such a gorgeous little house and WAY better than doing housework!! Love how your splatting looks purposeful but mine looks just like 'splats' which have been the result of some careless technique!!

  5. Housework, what would that be? Fabulous little house, the colours are gorgeous - so love it! xx

  6. Just still having a peep around, you do the most delightful things.


THANK YOU for taking the time to write me a means a lot! xxxxx
