Home is where the HeART is

Today for Retro Cafe Art I am sharing some fun little houses that were sent out for a Retro Cafe Art mini house shrine swap. If you have followed my art you know that I like to  make little things with lots of moveable parts. These houses use a lot  of unusual items too, there's poker chips, monopoly pieces and empty ribbon reels. Do you know they are discontinuing the iron playing piece in monopoly and replacing it with a cat! Many people don't even know what an iron is! LOL.

To make these I started with RCA  little mini houses shrines and covered the with Vintage Hair styling washi  tape. All the edges were painted with metallic paint. Inside there are buttons, monopoly pieces and the word home from the Collage Word Sheet by Cassandra VanCuren collage sheet. The empty  ribbon reels were painted then the part where the ribbon goes I covered it withVintage Hair styling washi tape to create a stand. I also layered a multi painted poker sheet on top of the ribbon reel. Some copper dimensional pearls were used for dotty dimensional accents.

Hope you will be in a happy heART home this week.
take care, gerri
