Steps to Make This:

  1. Download the house template, print it and cut the shapes out.
  2. Cut the Grafix Clear Craft Plastic sheet in half.
  3. Add paint to the Gel Press Plate and spread out with a brayer.
  4. Place the stencil on top of the plate and slide the brayer across the stencil. This will remove any excess paint.
  5. Remove the stencil and then place your Craft Plastic sheet on top of the monoprinting plate and press the plastic into the paint.
  6. Remove the Craft Plastic sheet and if so desired add an additional color in random spots on the plastic.
  7. Use the house template to cut out the shapes from the Craft Plastic sheets then put them aside.
  8. Print vintage images on the Computer Grafix Matte Adhesive-Backed Film and cut them out.
  9. Add color to the images by using Inktense pencils and spread the color around with a water brush then let dry.
  10. Remove the backing of the images and add them to the house panels.
  11. Add foam stamp designs on to the house panels using black paint.
  12. Then add Splatters of Art Spray to the house panels.
  13. You can also add text Stickers to the house panels.
  14. Attach all the house panels together with clear packing tape. Leave approx. 1/8” in between each panel.
  15. Cut out freeform scalloped edges out of the black and white polka dot cardstock and glue on to the house panel using Yes Paste.
  16. Add Washi tape to the roof.
  17. Punch holes using a paper punch then thread some black twine through the holes to tie a knot. Trim the excess twine.
  18. (Optional) Add lights to the inside of the house.
