Cut out a house shape out of Cardboard. Paint with acrylic paint.

add some stripes of paper and/or tissue paper

Place a stencil over the house and start spraying with chalkboard. Set aside to dry

Take a Frame from the Frame Fonts and spray with two different Glimmer Mist Colors

go over the frame with an archival ink pad and paint with clear crackle paint. Set aside to dry.

Paint Houses with Glimmer Glam which is also going to work as a sealer. You can use two different color – one for the roof and one for the bottom of the house.

Now take the Pearl Glimmer Mist and spray over the House – heat it up – don’t burn it with the heating gun and move the liquid around with the heating gun. Once everything is dry, spray it again and repeat. Do several times until you get a mother-of-pearl like look.

Do this until you are satisfied with the look

You can now dress up your houses – doodle with markers around the edges, add scraps and fairies, some nice inspirational sentences and the frames.

Attach strong magnet to the back – and take a walk to the fridge ;)

And there you go – a nice little present or to keep for yourself – an inspirational Fridge magnet.
