With all that is going on right now and the amount of time we are spending in our homes it only seemed right to have houses/home as the theme for August. I've had some wood houses sitting on my work table for some time now just waiting for inspiration and/or incentive to getting going on them. Of course that's not the only kind of houses I created this month. I love the theme of houses and can't stop thinking of different kinds to do now. I think houses will keep popping up in my studio long after the theme has past.This wood block house was nature inspired. I started off with crackle medium for some texture and used Nuvo Expanding Mousse for the mushrooms. It gave me some great dimensional texture. More crackle paste on the back with some nature die cuts coloured with embossing powder.
I call this one The Queens House. When I started it I was think maybe along the medieval or Gothic lines.
It took me a few weeks to finally discover that it was the Queens house and then of course the queen bee had to go on the back.
You didn't really think I wouldn't do a doodled mushroom house did you. It may get some colours in the future.
These are a couple of house ATC's for trading. They are still up for grabs if you'd like to do an ATC house trade.
Do you do any house art? I'd love to see it if you do.
