It's tutorial time!! Let's jump in, and get to it! Oh, and by the way, this limited edition kit is available in my shop.
I started by painting the edges, corners, and roof of the house with gesso. I also painted the windows, door, and heart. White acrylic paint would work great (and is included in the kit). I just grabbed what I had.
After it dried, I painted the edges with more gesso (white acrylic paint would work great) to soften the line between the paper and the house. I wiped off the excess with a paper towel , so you can still see the image.
I punched the scraps with a Fiskars Apron Lace punch (lace punched strips are included in the kit), and layered the in the arch of the roof on the house. I added a flower vine at the top of the door...a little tutu for the dress form.
