There are so many ways to decorate the quirky whimsical houses.  Here I have decorated the small box which can be used for paint brushes, pens , make-up  brushes,and knitting kneedles.

Step 1  I have painted the box, and the front of the house with a coat of white gesso, the sprayed  them with a can of ‘Pinty Plus’ chalky paint In ‘Rose Pink’. I sprayed the roof In ‘Pale Green’. I  was going to add a few trailing flowers but got carried away with the flowers.

Step 2  I ​then used ‘Polly’s texture stencil to make a brickwork effect putting paste through the stencil  and leaving to dry.

Step 3  I then used Faber Castell gelatos In ‘Butter Cream’ and ‘Guava’ on coated paper, blended it  together and cut out with floral dies In different sizes. I then attached them to the roof. I cut  another couple of flowers In half and used them for shutters. They looked very pretty.

Step 4  I then used the ‘Whimsical Texture Stencil’ to add little dots In ‘Decoart’ media fluid In ‘Ultra  Marine Blue’, and painted a few bricks with a wash of ‘Primary Magenta’.

Step 5  I Used ‘Polly Allsorts’ whimsical texture rubber stamps to stamp circles and dots with ‘Decoart’  ‘Hansa Yellow Light’ and ‘Titanium White’. And made a little sign ‘Wish House’ from ‘Polly’s  Whimsical street signs’ and stuck It on the front.above the window.

Step 6  I painted the door In Decoart ‘Primary Magenta’ and ‘Titanium White’ . I added liquid pearls  to the flowers and shutters In ‘Ruby red’ and a few dots on the small circles In ‘Platinum pearl’    The whimsical stamps and stencils can be bought from my etsy shop ‘Polly Allsorts’
