Julie Nutting's Doll House and Doll Stamps

Welcome to my house. 

Prima Marketing and Julie Nutting have designed a darling house for the wonderful doll stamps.  I had the pleasure of playing with one of the first on the market.  Such an honor.  

I also added the adorable little dog stamp since dogs are most certainly part of the family.  In this house, the dog can even sit on the furniture if he wants.

So here is a photo of the "Before" .  Lots of compartments and rooms to make any doll stamps dream house come true. 

I decided to keep my house as a natural wood finish.  My motto, "work smarter, not harder", so I can't be bothered to paint the house.  The house is a gorgeous clean light wood.  Why cover it up and worry about getting paint in the corners?  Forget it! Can't be bothered.  I simply chose my embellishments and papers around the house - if it looks good with the wood, then it's all good. 

In tackling such a large project, I thought it best to take each little compartment and decorate one section at a time.  I actually let the patterned paper do most of the decorating while using minimal embellishments.  I tried not to clutter the compartments with too much glitz or too much stuff. It's easy to get carried away and over decorate, but then I believe it gets confusing to look at with an over abundance of embellishments.    

There is , of course, an angel in the attic of this house - no matter that it's a Prima a resin angel. 

My large bow hides the handle.

My house even has a Prima resin wreath on the wall to make the home a warm welcoming one. 

The house reads, "Queen of my Castle".  So true. 
I have created a family room setting using more Prima Resins, and Julie Nutting's Chipboard furniture, ( floor lamp and arm chair).   Those were simply inked and then dabbed with some gesso on a dry brush. 

and the family adorable.

Thanks so much for stopping over to my house.
