Hittys' Art Gallery is Coming Along

I have decided that this structure is going to be a little Art Gallery after the fashion of our REAL art gallery, which also has an apartment upstairs. I used scrapbook paper for the floor downstairs and for the wallpaper and floor upstairs. The shingles are made from the cardboard back of an old desk calendar I'd saved (of COURSE!!!). I painted the whole thing black on one side and let it dry; then I marked the backside into two inch strips, and cut them out; after that, I cut into the strips, about 2/3 of the width, alternating 2 narrow shingles and then one wide one across. That way, the shingles don't line up, because I didn't want them to.
