Faith Pocock - Ollivander Shop from Harry Potter

                                                                        Hi Faith Pocock Fans!!

Have you seen all the cool MDF houses That Faith has? Go check them out in  Faiths shop. They are amazing and such a variety

I was a little intimated when she sent me "Ollivander Shop from Harry Potter

Pretty easy though if you ignore all the other bags that come with it!

4 walls, top and bottom

So once I had an idea in my head I pulled apart.

I found a free picture on clipart that had rows and rows of boxed wands. So I printed and pasted down for the back wall.

Next I glued main body back together

Next I got my trusty Vivid to colour in the windows 

Because I dont own a brick stencil which would have been ideal for this project I decided to get out my Coarse Texture gel and paint all over once I had glued on the pipe work

While this was left to dry over night I picked up the vivid and started to colour all the outside elements

Next morning I picked a colour for building and also selected some pictures to go behind windows.
Below is the finished result

Couldn't have a Harry Potter project without Dobby!

Flags of the 4 houses

Young wizard studying

And lastly a hand in the dark casting a spell

I truly enjoyed making this. Highly recommend any Harry Potter fan to give it a go
Only thing I would change is using a brick stencil.

Until next time

Faith Pocock - draw project

                                                                     Hi Faith Pocock Fans!!

I have a super quick project for you all today,  a cute little book draw over in Faiths shop.

I must admit the lovely Faith already pre made this project for me so all I had to do was decorate

I painted it with chalk paint

Next I picked out an image I liked as a focal point.

and then played around with some cogs from Faiths shop

At this stage I decided I didn't like the plain black background so picked out more paper

Painted cogs and glued everything down

Needed something for top right so added a number then rubbed DecoArt Metallic Lustre over edges and cogs.

Very quick and easy, but looks amazing!

Until next time

Faith Pocock - Book Nook

 Hi Faith Pocock Fans!!

A parcel arrived on my doorstep a couple weeks ago with some amazing projects to make up.... I wasn't sure which one to start but Faith wanted it for SENZ this year for her book Nook display, oh my this was such fun to put together and if you think this one is great you need to check out all the other Book Nooks over in Faiths shop.

Ready for the "dry" run

Its always important to do this then you know where every piece goes

Now ready for adding texture and paint
I used a container of "Flower Soft" that I have had laying around for years and never used... this was perfect for adding texture to trees

Painted shading to a blue sky

Next I added some texture paste to outside of building and painted grey when dry giving it a stone look
Added the door and shutters

Next I started gluing parts of the house together and joining it to one of the sides
Ohhh and don't forget the couple with their baby!

Lastly the other side, top and back are glued together.

This picture really doesn't do it justice.
If you would like a closer look and are here in NZ - it will be found at SENZ at Faith Pocock stand

Hope I inspired you all to get a book nook - these look amazing between a couple books on a shelf with little fairy lights glowing inside them

Until next time 
Happy Crafting
