Tinytopia and the magic of little things

I have recently joined in with a class run by Mary Jane Chadbourne, appropriately named "Tinytopia and the magic of little things". This is a fun on-line class and these little houses are very addictive.
I wanted to go for an eclectic mix of houses that I will have on display in my craft room. I have lots of pictures so will not talk to much about the details. I have created 6 so far with more to follow.
I love the small little details on each house and its surprising what detail you can fit in on such a small area.
I love the dolls head one with the clay hat/roof, perfect for a little pixie/fairy house.
I added 'Head Room' text on the pixie house, which I thought was perfect having a dolls head on the top. Of course I had to incorporate a Halloween house and a garden house, things I love!
I also love the little house with the metal face, hands and feet, so textural with lots of DecoArt Crackle. My witch has a fabulous metal hat aged with black paint along with added rub on's and touches of wax around the edges to give a lovely finish. I adore the hitch fastener feet!
This picture shows a little more detail on each of the houses, from a different sides. My London one was inspired by recent trip to London.
I love the owl on my Halloween one. Its such fun hunting out pieces to add to these fun little quirky houses.
The Easter one has fun little wooden bunny ears for added dimension.
The kit I purchased from Jane also has a stand to display the houses which is perfect , just a few more to complete and I will display them all together.
I hope you have enjoyed my fun little pieces as much as I have creating them!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
