Craft Garden March Challenge



Good Morning All, I hope you are All well. Can you believe it is already the 1st March, this year is going fast, as it is the 1st of the Month we have a new Inspirational challenge for you at the Craft Garden. Pop to the blog to see the inspirational picture
.
When I saw this picture I just wanted to make a cottage, so I have, my cottage is made with salt dough, It measures 7& half inches by 4 & half inches. I modeled  the cottage, it had to be baked in a very low temp oven for about 8 hours, I then left it over night to make sure it was properly dried out and cold, I then painted it with acrylic paints, when that was completely dry I then varnished it with 3 layers of wood varnish. If you would like to have a try, the recipe is on my Salt Dough page.(which you can find at the top of my blog.)
Now back to the challenge, you can make what ever you want, a card, scrapbook page, knitting or even have a try at some salt dough, as long as you have taken Inspiration from the picture.
You have a Month to enter, I hope you will join in with us, as I look forward to seeing your projects.
I would like to enter my cottage into the following challenge.

Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate you visiting.
Have a great day
Kevin xx

Hi Kevin, OOoh, Love your salt dough cottage - it's beautiful and reminds me of a cottage from a Fairy tale... Love the little details of the windows and the lovely roof:)I've had a go at salt dough, but now I know you apply 3 coats of varnish, that's where I've been going wrong!- you are truly inspirational, Hugs, Teresa x
