Ally, I enlarge the picture I'm using for these to actual size (I do these as an 5x7 piece, so not too large. Then I use my light table to trace the outlines and main lines of the house onto tracing paper.  For this picture I used fabric for the sky and grass. I sometimes paint them.  On this one I traced the house onto a white fabric and then painted it the various colors before cutting out and fusing onto the background. Then I TP'd it all. The landscape was all freehand, but pretty well matches the landscape in the original picture I was given.

Of course there is always creative license.

BJ - Your thread painting of the house of your friend, is lovely.  Bet you are really pleased with it. I would live to try a building but my perspective is not that great would have to trace the building. I have been asked to do a cottage.can you tell us your methods, is your sky painted or fabric etc.

will be watching with interest the challenge.

A finish!

Just finished this one. It is a house my friend lived in for many years and she asked me to do it for her. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I think it is my favorite of the houses I've done so far.

Now on to the challenge piece for Sharon.

Just completed this a week or so ago, and gave it to my cousin and hubby for their 50th anniversary. We had a lovely visit with them in Penn. USA. First time we have been out of country for 2 years. Thought I would show it here though I have posted it on my FB page for Etched In Thread by Ally.
