Creative Paperclay® Gnome Home with a Little Gnome Piggy

Welcome I am glad you have come to join me.

My name is Donna AKA/Memes Art Place and I am new to the Design Team. 

I have made the sweetest Gnome Home with a Gnome piggy as my first assignment. 

Supply List
*Creative Paperclay®
*Eileen Hull Designs/Sizzix 3D Block Die/or box of size you would like-You can see them HERE
*Embossing Paste by Wendy Vecchi-You can see that HERE
*Paint/I used Golden...but you can use what you like
*Time to play 

So how did this start? I will show you how I began my Gnome home!

I started with Eileen Hull Designs 3D Blocks die, I moved them around until I figured out how I
wanted my Gnome Home to look.
Once I found the shape I wanted and glued it all together I used
Embossing Paste to cover the outside of the house. I wanted this to
resemble stucco. I had to wait for this to dry a bit.
So while waiting, I rolled out my Creative Paperclay® and cut it into squares, not really worrying
about it being exact. As you can see some are smaller and some are bigger.
But it is okay, these will be roof tiles.
I started to apply the tiles, no glue necessary. Just remember, water is your friend!
I created a stem for the top and added little bricks and rocks to the front and sides.
I let this dry for a few days. Really only needed overnight, nothing was to thick, except maybe the stem.
I was off to paint and add the character to this New Gnome Home!
 I did not take pictures of the process for the Pig, he really was super easy! 
I think the paint process was the longest part of this whole process!
You can make anything out of the Creative Paperclay®!
The rocks look realistic along with the bricks.
Here is the back of the Gnome House with vines climbing up the stucco.
Another view, you can see the side.

And Finally meet the little piggy that lives in this home........Winston!
Here is Winston's backside!
