    and the scene is completed with a little 'shrubery', and the addition of Mom and Dad.

    And it's off to my friends layout for a little exposure :wave: :wave: :wave:

    Drew, if it wasn't for seeing the "base" of it I would have sworn it was a prototype. Great job.

    Like I said about the structure itself, this was very challanging and very rewarding to make.

    I've never 'made' 10 & 15 ft trees before.:eek: :eek: :eek:

    I've never planted 10" grass before, one blade at a time:eek: :eek:

    Thanks for all the good comments.Pictures on Saturday!! (it's only on my friends layout to inspire him to get going on his unfinished residential section;) ;) ;) ;) )

    Speaking of weathering, I was trying to weather the 'paper' brick on the main building. Dry brushing didn't work, no surfaces for the paint to catch onto. The india ink 'washes' would not wash the surface, they just wicked right in.

    Any thoughts on weathering paper?

    Great job there Drew. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
    Chalk is a good weathering on paper. Go lite with it and add more as you like. :wave:

    Chalk weathering,... that is one thing that I haven't tried yet. I've been reading alot about it, so It must be time to pick some up and give it a wirl:D :D :D

    One thing I forgot to mention, putting those trees and bushes around the cottage. When you use aroma therapy dish soap to mix with the white glue, the trees not only look real, they 'smell' real too!!
