Wendy Vecchi Art Parts - Key House

Hello Blog Friends

I thought I should show you the item I teased you with on Saturday.  As many of you know we are having renovations to our house and the new windows each have a different set of keys - so where to keep them?  I made one of these........


I made it from Wendy Vecchi Art Parts, from the sets Square Frames, Residences, Florals and Outdoor Art.

The Residence Art Part was stencilled over using Wendy's brick stencil and her white embossing paste which I coloured with some Fired Brick Distress Paint.  I love the way it turned out.


The background rectangle was covered with some BoBunny paper from my stash.  The flowers were painted with Distress Paint in Spiced Marmalade.  I traced around the flowers onto cardstock, painted these with Spiced Marmalade and added these to the base flowers to give dimension.  The roof is painted with Walnut Stain Distress Paint and the fence is coloured with Weathered Wood Distress Paint and distressed with Black Soot Distress Ink.



To finish off I added some self adhesive hangers by 7Gypsies and the word keys are Tim Holtz letters.  The hanger is seam binding coloured with Broken China Distress Stain.

Margie guessed what it is and a couple of others were very close, I will have to try harder next time to disguise my make a little better!  Thank you for looking and thank you especially if you leave me a comment.

Hugs, Anne x

  20. Hallo Anne,
    dein Häuschen sieht so süß aus mit dem kleinen Gartenzaun davor.
    Und die Steine in der Wand sehen total echt aus, wie gemauerte Ziegelsteine.
    Unglaublich schön, und dann auch noch praktisch für die Schlüssel.
    Liebe Grüße von Sophie xx

  26. This is brilliant Anne! Even if you are just locking/unlocking windows that little house will make you smile each time you reach for the key - the masonry especially is fabulous. I love all your little details and dimension. Hope those builders are coming down the home straight (no pun intended). Nicola x

  32. Amazing use of these elements to make something you can actually 'use', and not just 'look at'. This is so lovely, and what a great way to store your keys to your new windows. Hope the remodeling is coming along as it should, and you soon will have your new space. Pictures???? Trying to do some 'visiting' this afternoon, and enjoying all the wonderful things I'm seeing. TFS & hugs.
