Mixed media ATC - Acorn House

Hello everyone.!

       Firstly I would like to apologize for not being so active in blogland and other social media..! I am quite occupied with preparing for my exams and travelling about 4 hrs to work everyday.!! I wanted to make this post long back but found the time right now.! So here's another mixed media ATC..

Am sharing a pictorial of the process here..
I first sketched out the rough version of the hut & traced it out with black fine liner pen..

I mixed mica flakes and gesso to add on the head portion..

Painted the base with brown acrylic paint, applied crackle paint and then added a top coat of orange acrylic paint..

Painted the acorn head with brown and black acrylic paint..

Added all the exposed bricks and stairs with texture paste...

Added some highlights by dry brushing with gesso.. It also brings out the relief areas..

I decided later on to make the door an interactive one.. So here's a little surprise inside :) the door knob is made out of clay & painted gold..

A little photo editing to give a fairy tale feel ;)

Hope you liked it. I hope to be back soon for my craft routine in few weeks and also make visits around blogland.!!
Thanks for your support & love <3
Create. Have fun.
