Faux stone

I've got so many works in progress right now, happily I can say this one is finished. I created some faux stone work for the outside of the barbie house I'm working on. I used cardboard, tissue paper and mod podge to create the look. I cut the cardboard into 1"x1 1/2" pieces and used Elmers glue to hold it in place. Once the glue dried, I painted on some Mod Podge and layered some crumpled tissue paper over the pieces. I kept adding tissue paper until the area was covered. Here it is all painted to look like faux stone on the outside of the Barbie house. The pink window frame will be put on later-- once I've decided what kind of curtains I'm going to use.
Here is the before picture:I did the same treatment for the sides of the house as well.
1.) added cardboard.2.) Added tissue paper...
3.) Painted everything~Next, I'm going to be working on creating a wood floor for the second floor of the house. I was lucky to come across a bag full of thin wood strips that measure 7"x1/4".... immediately I thought of a wood floor for a dollhouse.Stay tuned for that :-)
