Julia Spiri December Challenge DT Post

It's time for the final challenge of the year over at Julia Spiri Challenge Blog and as always the theme is Anything Goes with an Optional Twist. This time the twist is 'dolls house'. This one was so much fun to do!

I have had a blank MDF money box that's been in need of altering, sat in my cupboard for almost a year, and this was the perfect challenge to inspire me to dig it out and use it. I teamed it with the very cute Little Fairy digi, turning it into an adorable house for her to dwell in.

First I painted the roof in acrylic paint, and added a tile effect with a mask and grey paint. Once dry I cut to size papers from a 12x12 paper pad called Ella Blue, made by GCD Studios and adhered to the walls. The windows and door are cut using my silhouette cameo, and the fence is a Tim Holtz die cut. I finished with little flowers all around from my stash.

I have to say I am thrilled with how the project came together, and I am hoping my youngest daughter will be too as it is a gift for her birthday. I am hoping it will encourage her to save her pocket money to buy new furniture for the dolls house we are buying her for her birthday, just before Christmas. 

We would love to see your entries so do join in if you can. You don't have to use the twist, or even Julia Spiri images, but there are some amazing ones to choose from in the Etsy Shop if you fancy treating yourself to some new images. You can also join our Facebook Page to keep up to date with all new releases and share your work using her adorable digis.

I'll take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas. I hope Santa stuffs your stockings with some crafty goodness and you enjoy some family time with your loved ones.
