Kenwood House , Hampstead London.

Kenwood House (also known as the Iveagh Bequest) is a former stately home, in Hampstead, London, on the northern boundary of Hampstead Heath. 

The house was originally constructed in the 17th century and served as a residence for the Earls of Mansfield through the 18th and 19th centuries. Part of the estate was bought by the Guinness family in the early 20th century, and the whole property and grounds came under ownership of the London County Council and was open to the public by the end of the 1920s. It remains a popular local tourist attraction.

Creating London Colourful Terrace houses out of recycled milk cartons.

First things first, spend time collecting used milk and juice boxes, rinse out thoroughly leave to dry out for a day.

Select your choice of paint. I choses these Baker Ross Pastel Ready Mixed Paint for Kids. they are pastel colours good as a replica of the NW3 London postcode town houses.

Cover your work surface with bine liners or old newspapers, set aside some to place painted cartons to dry overnight. the boxed will require several coats of paint, I did 4 coats of paint.

Set painted cartons aside to dry. Once dry, use your white chalk pens to draw in the details. This next step dries up very quickly.

There you go, your houses are all set, Enjoy!

Quiet London : Siobhan Wall

London is an exciting place to be, but not everyone wants to be in a noisy environment listening to loud music. Perhaps they want to be somewhere where they can read a book, or sit and linger for a while. Many visitors to the capital long to discover places off the beaten track – find a delightful garden to sit in or a tree-lined walk by a river.
