ePlay Challenge–Wood

2014 April 7
by Micki

Hi folks,

As promised I made time to play along with eclectic Paperie’s April ePlay Challenge.  After cleaning house, doing laundry and running some errands on Saturday, I was able to sneak into my studio in the early evening to start on my project.

After some paper painting & mark making, and generally making a mess, here is what my finished project looks like:

These were just scraps of 2×4” pieces of pine which hubby cut for me and lightly sanded.  I’ll be posting a more detailed step by step on the eP blog on my next post which will be this Saturday.    Got to use some new eP goodies that had just arrived on Saturday.  I spend all day Sunday playing with these and have to say that I had lots of fun.  Working on these kept my mind off the work week ahead, definitely a good thing!

Here are some close ups of each house.  The taller one:

The mid sized one:

And the smaller (narrow) one:

I think they turned out great, especially considering what they looked like before adding the detailing and doodling Smile.

    Just love love love your wooden houses.  I am completely obsessed with creating whimsical houses.  Thanks for sharing and hope you dont mind me using your inspiration for my own houses.  Dont worry, just keep my art for myself and display in my Sue-Dio.  (dumb yes, but my name is Sue, so Sue-Dio)
