Spring Nest


Have you ever started something and it turned out to be something very different? Yep, that's where this lil house took me. I thought I was making another romantic cottage, but as it progressed, I knew I wanted something else, a touch of whimsy. Emma was thrilled to see the addition of woodland animals, she wants to know why they don't make it into all my projects. The roof is made from vintage lotto cards, I cut them up and layered them like roof shingles. Mica sprinkled on top provides the shimmer. This was my first time using mica, I love it! Hmm what else can I sprinkle it on? The house is from Maya Road, papers are Basic Grey and Cosmo Cricket.
