Sticks & Bones - In The Village

By now you must have seen the fab-u-lush new collection from Polkadoodles
Sticks & Bones
You can find it in the store right here
You can find a full download, A CD, or even smaller downloads inbetween, how cool is that - plenty to fit everyone's budget 

I have made a few projects with this new collection but one thing that really stood out for me were the houses , so perfect for the little people and the Dino's 


I started off by cutting out a house for the card I was going to make *tick tock* as soon as my scissors started cutting the old grey matter was whirring and .......a village was created in my head.

This is one of the biggest projects I have made.......yet ............... measured this morning at 18 inches across.... I cut most of it by hand, but I gave in on the rock floor 4 x A4 pages was enough to send anyone scurrying for there cutters.

I used a piece of corrugated cardboard for the base , (my cats were most upset surely the box I was cutting up was for them??) and made little bases from Kraft card to stick to the houses so they stood  upright.

Then attached lots of fun dino and little people........and started on the floor - in hindsight (always a good thing) I should have covered the floor first with a greyish paper and built the rock floor on it, Oh no not I , the rocks had to cover the cardboard before I could begin... I used lots of foam pads to raise the rocks at different levels.

I thought I had completed my village but after a disastarous day yesterday - I fell out of love with my camera! I sent some photos to our Nikky - who gave me the fantastic idea of adding a vulcano and a huge TRex OMG it totally rocked and finished of my project
I so hope you like it
