Moorland Cottage

April 15, 2018

I’ve been working on the Tudor cottage lately. It has been slow-going since moving to Indianapolis in October. It has taken awhile setting up and organizing my craft room. Now that I can find everything, I’m back to creating.

 

I didn't get around to blogging about the wall treatments that were applied to the Moorland Cottage.  I chose some pretty scrapbook paper prints for wallpaper but mostly wood panels and trim were applied in keeping with the rustic Tudor style.  Once the walls were covered, I couldn't wait to begin furnishing and creating scenes on the first floor!

I will eventually go back and replace the thin taper candles in the lighting fixture with thicker pillar candles.

 

 

 

I really wanted to create ornate ceilings in this house. I used gold scrapbook stickers and embossed wood trim in the living room. I trimmed over the front door using cardboard scrapbook cutouts. I also created beams in the dining hall.

 

 

 

This kit came with a simple, ladder type of stair. I decided to create my own.

 

 

 

I built a bench from scrap wood and embellished it with jewelry findings.

 

 

 

 

 

I wanted to incorporate some linen fold paneling which is very often used in Tudor decor. I built panels and a window seat and used corrugated scrapbook paper to create the linen folds.

 

 

 

I had a hard time finding a table that would fit into the dining hall in this small cottage. I ended up using a fairy garden table that I deconstructed and cut down to half its size in width and height.

 

 

 

The kitchen was the most fun for sure. I built my own fireplace and shelf. The bricks in the fireplace were made with cork that I cut into rectangles and painted. I created the stone floor using paper clay.

 

 

 

 

 

That’s it for this post. On to the second floor….
