Tiny Ocean House
Since I don't have a lot of crafting capacity right now, I thought it would be wise to finish up the little project I needed to make for the Craftster Tiny Fairy Tale House swap. It feels nice to have the pressure off, and I'm very pleased with how this Little Mermaid-inspired house turned out!
It's about 1.5"x1.5"x2", embellished all the way around with seashells and a responsible amount of glitter glue (because yes, there is such thing as too much glitter glue). The shells are sparkled up with some jaquard pigment powder... so subtle and shimmery!
My favorite part is the roof! I used my cricut to cut scallops, then painted the layers in different colors of that powdered pigment before gluing them down. It reminds me of fish scales, the way it's shiny, and well, the shape! I think I've got to make a similar fish ornament later on.
And what work of art is complete without a touch of sparkly microballs? Haha, I couldn't leave them out, because they look so much like little bubbles. Perfect for Little Mermaid-esque-ness. So there's just a touch.
