Gingerbread House with Sakura Crystal Lacquer!


HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!
I know this may be a bit late for this year... but you have all year to make a little village for Christmas 2013!!!  All you need is Creative Paperclay®,  Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer and Terri Sproul Mixers, a few cookie cutters and IMAGINATION!
Roll out Creative Paperclay® like cookie dough.  Cut clay with the Sweet Creations by Good Cook Mini Gingerbread House, small Christmas Tree and small Snowman Cookie Cutters.  I usually roll it out on a transparency so I can pick it up and ease is off.
Construct the house while it is still wet.  Use clay made into slip in the inside corners as a glue.
At the same time cutting clay make small thin tear drops for tiles on the roof of the house. 
When dry paint the trees with Terri Sproul Mixers-Green Pearl, sprinkle lightly with Terry Srpoul Ultra Fine Glitter and decorate with Viva Pearl Pens Gold and Red balls!  
Paint the snowman top hat with black craft paint and dry.  Paint with Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer, while wet add black seed beads for eyes and buttons, then sprinkle lightly with Terry Srpoul Ultra Fine Glitter!  When dry add Bakers Twine for a scarf, add a dab of Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer to secure at the knot.

   Copper Penny
   Citrine
   Shimmer Garnet
   Green Pearl

Small Christmas Tree Cookie Cutter
Small Snowman Cookie Cutter
Viva Pearl Pens - Gold, Red and White

Glue the tear drop shingles on the house using Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer mixed with Terri Sproul Mixers-Copper Penny. Cover the roof with Copper Penny and sprinkle lightly with Terry Srpoul Ultra Fine Glitter!
Paint the house with Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer mixed with
Terri Sproul Mixers-Shimmer Garnet. Add the window while the lacquer is wet and paint it Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer mixed with Terri Sproul Mixers-Citrine. Let Dry.

How incredibly creative! Dear Lyneen, I have been thinking of our mutual Friend recently--is she okay? I tried to visit her blog, but it looks like it has been taken down.

I hope your New Year is blessed.

I love this post, by the way--you are just amazing.
