Christmas Project #6


Gingerbread Cottage
artist Ranjini Malhorta


Ranjini used ACT cards to create this little cottage.  She covered the cards with a large dot paper-Matarro, small brown stripe-Terrassa, and our favorite red polka dot-Coloma .  The Barcelona papers are two sided so you get a lot of choices when it comes to dots and stripes.  Love that.
Ranjini taped the cards together with stripe gaffer tape to create the house.   
 
She painted and glittered shapes from 1 package of ATC chipboard. Then began to add all that glittery "gingerbread" to the little house.  She added a bit of bling to serve as lights and gumdrops on the roof.
Clever girl, that Ranjini.




We can just see a whole village of these little houses along the mantle...maybe a candy cane lane or a snow village.  
What would your village look like?
