2016 #11 Fairy House {by Etsuko Noguchi}

2016 Topic 11: Our House

Hi everyone!! Etsuko Noguchi here. I'm thrilled to be back on the PaperArtsy blog and tonight I'd like to share with you a post for the ‘HOUSE’ theme.

I made this Fairy House to use my new favorite Sara Nauman’s stamp set.

Step 1. 
I started to make the houses using heavy weight card.

 Step 2. 
I then stamped Sara's ESN20 leaves by Fresco Guacamole, Hey Pesto, Hyde Park and Haystack onto the smoothy white stamping card 

I also stamped ESN20, ESN15 sentiments, wild flower and circle on the waxed tissue white using Archival inks. I tore the tissue paper and stuck by gel medium to the roofs.

Step 3. I was very inspired by 'Wanderlust' e-class Andy Skinner's fabulous technique. It was a complicated process but I followed up to the embossing this time.

I used Prima Modeling Paste onto each of the outer walls then I used heat tool until the paste dried a little (once it is no longer creamy). I stamped ESN20, ESN15 onto the outer walls with a little water. I shaped the house outer walls when the paste completely dried. Also I made fence and steps with chip board, I then used Golden White Gesso on the houses. 

​Step 4. 
I cut the leaves to make the roof tiles and attached onto each roof. And I added mosses. The tree was made with the same way as the roof.

Step 5. 
I painted Fresco Mermaid on the cube house and I added dry brushing with Guacamole. I then painted Fresco Haystack on the cylindrical house and I added dry brushing with Blue Oyster.

I used fab Hot Picks HP1605 to made the doors and the windows. 

Finally I made the mushrooms and the fairy with paper clay then I  painted with Frescos. I used ESN20 to made the fairy dress with Fresco Blue Oyster and China.

I really had enjoy to making the fairy house and love to play with wonderful stamps and Fresco paints. Hope you like this and would you like to make your own fairy house beside the window. 

Thanks so much for joining me tonight!

Thankyou Etsuko, this is such a sweet fairy house. The texture on the walls is wonderful, Sara's stamps have worked perfectly. The dry brushed technique was a great choice as it really lifts the texture. Such lovely finishing touches too, with the beads and words on the rooftop. ~Darcy

Etsuko, these are adorable! I love how cleverly you used Sara's leaves to make those leafy roof tiles! These are perfect fairy houses, any fairy would be proud to call them home! xx

This is amazing, etsuko! Where do i begin? I love the shape of the houses and that you made them from scratch. I love the leaf tiles. I love the clay doll. The attention to detail and all the techniques are amazing. The shapes of the two houses remind me of the buildings we often see in France. Maybe they have fairies inside?
