Day 225 ~ Make a critter house.

What kind of critter? I dunno. Whatever critter wants to live there. S/he has to be small, though, because this piece is 6" X 8". The background is a watercolor with some stamping and designs drawn in watercolor pencil, then painted. The house is made of cut sticks glued to a piece of watercolor paper that has been formed over foam core ribs so that it bows out. The door was cut from the paper and swings out. Inside the house is a piece of leaf for a back wall. The squares decorating the facade, also pieces of pressed and dried leaves. The roof is grape vine pieces with some raffia, the ladder and stilts are painted sticks tied with sewing thread. The metal piece at the base is something I found on the road.
