Hope you are all having a good week so far!
Here is a little project I created for my design team day over at
another project you can all create with
a sprinkling of imagination ...
leftover scraps of pretty papers
paints, inks, stamps, embossing powders, stencils
and a need to get
inky, paint splattered hands ... bliss!!
To get started I pulled out a box from my stash, full of scraps from
I was over the moon to find a 12x12 Color Burst Sheet not even touched ...woohoo ...which became my starting point, followed by scraps chopped up into house shapes complete with wonky tonky doors and chimneys.
Can you see how the background paper already has beautiful splats of color ...
I fixed the houses in place with Inkssentials Glossy accents and scribbled all around with a fine black liner pen.
I do love to scribble!
I used Susan K Weckesser Inc/Crafters Workshop Stencil along with some Gesso for the numbers on the roofs.
More scribbles, blobs of white acrylic paint smudged around with my fingers, Tim Holtz Rub ons and cut out hearts.
The chimneys are working .... see the puffs of smoke welcoming you home.
A little close up so that you can see the Smooch Spritz sprays I applied in various colors along with
I also used sentiment stamps from Susan K Weckesser/ Unity Stamp co - Create Your Day set
along with A Little Bit Washi stamps for added texture.
Not to mention more hearts cut from scraps, churning out those chimneys!
The little hickeldy pickeldy fence was drawn in with a pan pastel tool and smudged for a softer look all round and finished with UTEE and clear embossing powders for more touchy feely textures.
I will leave you with this little house called " Hope " along with one of the sentiments -
It`s the imperfections that make us beautiful and unique!
Till next time
