Back working on the house.
I've taken the paperclay tiles off that i started a few weeks ago and started to replace them with cardboard tiles.
I'm using the cardboard you get when you buy the strong boxes of glossy photo paper and it's about the same thickness as artists mount board so perfect for tiles.
The house has been sitting next to me as i work and i didnt want to carry on until i knew exactly what i wanted to make replacement tiles with.
Debie from Piskies and Poppets recently made a witches corner with cardboard roof tiles and i thought they looked wonderful, so had to have them for my house too.
Once the whole roof is done and the glue is dry i think i'll sand all the edges of the tiles and bash them about a bit so they look old, dirty and worn.
Can you see on the other side of the house where the roof just ends. Thats the bit i'm unsure about when i tile that roof. Where it just ends i dont know what to do with the last layer of tiles so the ending looks right.
If anyone has any suggestions i'd be happy to know. I should have planned the house better but at the time of building it just looked right.
