Row House(s) Swap

 My ATC group made Row Houses for our December project. We made two for each trade and they were 1" wide and could be any height- up to 3 1/2". We had 9 ladies trade. Here are my Row Houses:

  I found a post on the Fiber-Castell blog done by Mieshia for large houses- and since I have not had my Gelato's out for a while, I decided to give it a go in this mini size....... I had fun getting out all of my unused metal embellishments.

 I used 'old' and unmarked TJ scraps for the house- Walnut Ink Resist- and roof -unmarked "UFO' Technique Junkie technique.

  More fun in my scrap box.....  a couple with Alcohol Inks, watercolor, Simple Sumi and Cuttlebug Highlight. I made misc doors and other accents.

 More Simple Sumi, Watercolor and fun with doors and windows.

Here are the houses I recieved back in the trade:
Mary W made the three on the Lt; and Mari made the two on the Rt.

Harriet  made the 2 on the Left, and Sandy the 2 on the Right

Cindy made the houses on either end and Diane M. made the center two houses.

Trena made the Lt two houses and Debbie the Rt two houses.

A Christmas ATC from Mary : )

 I really enjoyed the row houses- the goal is to connect the houses and made a little scene on the mantel.  I may make a few more to add to my 'collection.

Thanks for stopping by!
