Church Book Nook – Wedding


First I made coverings for the outside walls. I embossed card with  a cobble/stone folder and blended with distress inks to look like old stone.

I waxed the light bulb supports with a tinted wax.

I used the Coolkatzcraft Cobble Path stencil and paste for the floor, then painted with an acrylic paint, distressed it in the middle and sealed it.

Then I waxed the pews and later attached bows to the isle side, and added bibles to the back of each pew.

Next I built the walls using Speed Bond glue from Coolkatzcraft. While they were drying I painted the windows with alcohol inks, making them look like stained glass and blended colour to the surround stonework. For the main window I die cut a lattice and used it as the divider for colour; for the side windows I used peel offs which I painted black with Artist Marker from Coolkatzcraft

I built the tower using the same embossed card as the walls and made a flag pole and flag for the top.

I covered the roof with tiles made with the Coolkatz Mini Roof Tile Strips;I coloured the strips with alcohol markers and added moss. The ceiling and eaves were waxed using a tinted liquid wax and I added a couple of extra beams.

The front door was also waxed and I used a small metal ring for the knocker, which is kept in place with thin wire. I glued the door in place (slightly opened) with Laser cut kit glue also from Coolkatzcraft. I made a flower garland and draped it around the stone door surround. I added a small brick path to the front of the church and placed 2 topiary standard trees, which I made out of painted polystyrene balls on either side of the doorway.

Because the church is very old it needed wall anchors to hold the walls in place; there are a couple of tombstones outside the church as well. I used a die from my stash to cut grass that grows around the church.

How fabulous is that! As always if you have created a project using any of our CoolKatz products we would love you to share photos of them over in our Facebook Group, you will find the link below.

Happy Crafting.
