Blog Hop - House, 3-D

Today I Created | A 3-D House for the first Triple Play Blog Hop Thursday

This was my first experience using the Sizzix ScoreBoard dies by Eileen Hull and I can see the wonderful possibilities. I decided to try some unusual chipboard to use as the basis of my 3-D House project.

I found some old LP records in my attic recently so I dug through them and found John Lennon's Double Fantasy album. He was such an icon of music and peaceful protests that I knew I could create something with his album cover.

I had to be a little creative to die cut the shape so that both John and Yoko's image could be clearly seen once the house was assembled.

After most of the house was built but before gluing on the roof, I attached the wire so that it curved in a graceful bend. Next I used Photoshop to print images of butterflies that I found on the Graphics Fairy blog and carefully cut them out. I arranged them by color so that they start off in shades of blue/green and rise up to orange. I attached the butterflies onto the wire to appear as if in flight from the door up to the rooftop.

My Triple Play Blog Hop project is a tribute to John Lennon and the magic of his message that is still relevant today.

Please click on the Triple Play Blog Hop button on the right to continue to view the work of other designers and their creative use of this same 3-D House die. And next Thursday we will be featuring the 3-D Twist Cube die.
