It's a Small, Small World at Frilly and Funkie

Hi everyone and welcome! First of all, thank you for all your lovely reactions to my Creative Chemistry 103 homework; it was very much appreciated. Today it's all about beautiful things coming in small packages for the latest Frilly and Funkie challenge. The fabulous Cec Wintonyk is our host for this one and has chosen the theme 'It's a Small, Small World'. Here's what she has to say about it; "Create or alter something small in a shabby chic or vintage style. Your finished project can be anything from the size of an inchie, matchbook or domino to the size of a playing card or note card, which means anything from 1 inch to 4 inches and it does not have to be flat. Be creative and let us know in your post just how small your project is".

At the end of the challenge the team will choose their top four picks. Our first place winner will be invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at Frilly and Funkie. Three additional talented participants will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and adheres to the challenge guidelines will be entered into a drawing to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique!


Many possibilities came to mind for sticking within the 4 inch limits but I settled on this Tim Holtz Village Dwelling which comes in exactly on 4" x 4" x 4"! How's that for planning. There are two main elements to this house; the walls and the roof/base. The former was created from Distress Woodgrain Cardstock, coloured using the Paint Resist technique from Creative Chemistry 103 and lots of Distress paints and inks (listed below).



The roof and base were created using the Paint Resist technique again - yes, that blue and orange 'paper' is in fact stamped/inked card using the Tiles and Mosaic background stamp set! The blue floral came from the Correspondence Tim Holtz Paper Stash and matches perfectly with Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink. The flowers scattered at the bottom of the walls, across the porch and on the roof are Tiny Tattered Florals created using coordinating Core card stock and Brass Liquid Pearls in the centres. 



Time for some close ups - feel free to flick through as quick as you like (click each image for a closer view);
some people like to see the details and others just want the edited highlights so it's over to you!














There you have it - my contribution to the collection of gorgeous 'It's a Small, Small World' creations from the Frilly and Funkie Design Team. Make sure you hop on over to see their incredible makes, by which time I'm sure you'll be inspired to join in the fun and be in with a chance to win!

Thank you for joining me today. Whatever you're up to for the rest of the week have a good one and take care of yourselves, Jenny xxx

  23. Can I move into this charming little cottage? I promise to have you over for mugs of tea and fresh baked biscuits. I love this soooooo much! Every detail is sheer perfection. I have to confess, though...having a husband who's been a roofing contractor for the past 32 years, I noticed the roof right away. LOL Good shingle work! Hugs, Jenny....

  24. Oh my goodness, Jenny! I can't get over your fabulous, funky, happy little cottage! You are a master in the use of color (and blending inks and colors seamlessly), which you've achieved here to perfection. The flower garden is so cheery and fitting for your cottage, plus the wood texture and the tiny curtains in the windows--genius! As for the roof and base--there are no words!! I don't know how you do it. I have looked at your photos about 30 times just taking in all the marvelous detail. You are amazing!
    Hugs,
    Nancy
