More Houses

2014 September 15

This time on a canvas.  Yes, I know, I’m obsessed with houses; wood houses and paper houses on canvas.  What can I say, they are a wonderful project to use up bits and pieces of scrap paper, gelli prints, ephemera, rub-ons and even bling.




I did not add too much texture and kept the background rather plain because I really liked how it turned out with the graduating colors.  Kind of reminds me of a late sunset.  The houses, roofs and windows/doors are scrap papers, some cut but most were torn then covered with several layers of paint. 

I doodled lightly around everything and added some old rub-ons as well as a heart gem and that was about all the art I did this past weekend.  I had a senior shoot on Saturday, which reinforced the point that my body must be too old for this sort of hobby.  It definitely takes me longer to get back up when I lay on the ground for that “different” shot and so I pay for it the next day.  Even the balls of my feet, which I totally don’t understand.  Sigh – getting old Smile.  I did have a girl night with one of my besties, Rhonda, watched one scary movie followed by a funny one.  Much needed “unwind” time and lots of laughter!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend doing what you wanted!  Until next time…..

    Nice Village!  I like that there wasn't as much going on in this one as usual.  I'm less likely to miss something, but I'm still gawking at it for the fourth time.  Hope that Kyle & Gracy are both mended and won't be taking you to the hospital anytime again EVER!  Glad you got some fun friend time in over the weekend.  Wishing you a wonderful week.  Bet you're oohing and aahing over the cool down, aren't you?
