The emergence of a building

Next on the list for construction was a house book box. 

This is to contain images/ books that I haven't made yet, getting there! Just seem to be slow at the moment.  

It is representing Avignon in Provence and the books to go in it will be about the area surrounding Avignon. 

I have made the house using box card, and covered it with paper dyed with tea and caustic soda, then layered with dried teabags and painted. 

Each window will contain a book and the spaces for these are lined with maps and brochure pages from Avignon.

 It has taken me in excess of 12 hours just to construct this.

Anyway, I must go as I now have the books to create!!
