Enter if you dare

 A house is never still in darkness to those who listen intently; there is a whispering in distant chambers, an unearthly hand presses the snib of the window, the latch rises. 

~ J.M. Barrie

 A  little haunting decor for the holidays! The  desire to play in the  world of miniatures called my  name and using one of the Darice Wooden homes, grafix black chipboard and some  paints House #13 came  to life with  ghosts and all! 

Each shingle and siding  was  painted and then cut from the grafix chipboard and glued on . The  moss is is green embossing powder mixed with  matte gel medium 

The shutters were simply black cardstock  painted, cut and glued  and the wood boards  covering the  window  ... back to the  black grafix chipboard, painted, a pin to create the  lines and  voila  wood pieces . 

Spooky trees cut  and  painted and the fence pillars   tiny cut pieces of the  grafix chipboard.  On those to add texture  I added sand and cheesecloth  before painting them gray. 

So Once upon a  time that was the  house , 10 sheets of the  6x6 grafix chipboard  and  80 hours later  House #13 is  now on the  block! 

Happy Halloween! 
okay I'm off .. I have started a  fairy  house and this is the  walkway so far....
