I've been learning a lot, creating these house portrait silhouettes! For my 3D house portraits I've been in the process these last few years of getting better and better at capturing every.single.detail. With each new commission I've challenged myself to add more layers, more levels, and get increasingly literal - if there's a piece of wood or stone, it's probably represented as a separate piece of paper.
I made a thing! Well, technically I made this thing a "thing", in that what once was a vague idea is now a fully-organized and structured product that is available for purchase on my website!
True confession: I use scrapbooking paper to contain all the pieces of my works-in-progress mostly so that I have the occasional photo op that is something besides my cutting mat! I don't know when or why I bought this teal paper with architectural drawings on it, I think it pre-dates my time making houses out of paper, though, so it's either a happy coincidence or foreshadowing! 😂
Isn't this background color the best thing you've ever seen?? (Just me? 😂 I know this one can be a little divisive) It also might look a little different, since this is the first time I've shared this funky background option here, but since I love this color I decided I could add it to my palette!
Windows! The house I'm working on this week has twenty gorgeous windows, with fancy trim and shutters and three of them are dormers. One thing I hadn't fully appreciated when I started on this paper house portrait adventure is that the houses that take the longest to draw, often then also take a good chunk of time to get ready to cut, then the cutting machine takes a long time to cut them out (sometimes over an hour!), and after all those hours I still haven't even glued two pieces together. I'm very overdue on this one, so I'm hoping these windows come together without being too fiddly!
