Life's A Beach

Hello and good morning lovely people!

Thanks so much for your kind wishes both for my DH and our family and friends...
Things are improving all round... Now all we need is some lovely Spring weather Lol!

 I haven't done a great deal of crafting but I have a little light up project to share with you today


 I made a little beach house with a battery operated tealight inside - The house is made from card and I added hessian to the roof and a few die cuts plus a door made from lolly sticks, painted with a tiny link glued on for the handle


The base it sits on measure just 4x4¾ so it's quite small and I used fine (used) glass paper to cover it


The die cut anchor was covered and embossed a few times to get a rusty looking effect and I added a piece of broken chain - You can also see a flap at the back of the house to insert or change the candle

Here it is lit... The windows are on 3 sides, lined with vellum that I drew a few lines on


A few bits and pieces to decorate and that's it... Cute huh?

Ok... I'm off to catch up with your blogs now...

Wishing you all a lovely day

~ Ros ~

My gosh Ros, this is incredible, and super cute! You have left nothing out, I love this little beach house, and all the details you have added, even the light! WOW, you just blow my mind with these houses and rooms you create. I'm glad to hear hubby, family & friends are all improving. I agree we do need Spring to arrive. Have a wonderful day Ros!

Oh Ros this has really bought a smile to my face, and I would love to have the upscaled version of this right next to the sea on my own bit of beach..not possible I know but I can dream...lol. This little miniature is so full of interesting features and inventive uses for everyday bits and pieces, and looking very pretty when lit up I'm sure. x

I am really enjoying your 3-D creations, Ros! I'm so impressed with every little detail! I love that it lights up through those wonderful vellum windows and how clever to make a rusty anchor complete with chain!

OMGosh, Ros! This is the CUTEST thing EVER! So many GREAT details right down to the rusty anchor, chain, and pleated shades! LOVE this!

Cute indeed Ros. You sure have fun making these adorable projects. Your attention to detail is as always staggering. I am amazed that it is on a 4 x 43/4 base and I bet it looks fabulous with the tea light on in the dark x

Maria said...

Love all your miniature artsy projects, Ros! And, this one is just too cute for words! Wonderful beach items from the sweet sea gull to the tiny shells and fab beach sign! The anchor and door are perfect, too! Another amazing creation...well done!!

Kathy Krug said...

I love this 3D scene. You always have such amazing details you add to these.

Leslie Miller said...

I have no idea how you come up with all your ideas for these amazing creations, but the detail and authenticity is incredible! That anchor! It looks absolutely real! I had to look up glass paper as I'd never heard of it. Similar to sandpaper, but with glass. It makes the perfect base for your beach house. How fun it would be to have your growing collection of miniatures on display. Real conversation pieces!

You are so creative and clever, Ros. I would be all thumbs trying to put something this tiny together and with glue every where. I do love seeing your tiny projects. Glad all is going better with your DH and friends too. TFS Hugs..Nancy

Darnell said...

Cute with a capital CUTE, Ros! It's extraordinary! It's so much fun to look at and it must be so much fun to create! I would commission you to make me a tiny Playhouse except it would no doubt be ruined in the mailing. If you're keep these miniatures, I'd love to see a photo of them all together sometime! So glad to hear Ian's friend and your brother are doing better! Hugs, Darnell

What a cute beach house - makes me want to go this minute, even if I've practically just returned from vacation... Have a wonderful weekend!

Inkyfingers said...

Oh my Ros, this piece is just gorgeous!!! I love the fabulous rustic look you got and the seagull on the top is sending me away with a big smile on my face. I'm glad to hear things are improving for you and your family, and I hope the beautiful weather we are having is cheering you all.
Hugs
