On The Street Where You Live

For the last couple of weeks PaperArtsy have had a challenge of  Our House. I really liked the sound of this, so this is what I came up with.

I didn't really know what I wanted to do so I started by brayering a couple of backgrounds with Fresco Paints.

I have lots of house stamps, so I stamped them out and did a bit of rough highlighting with a white pen. 
I cut all these out and then came the 'what now' moment.

So I painted a box frame with Bubble Gum and Coral and set about stamping.
This is Jofy 15 and the fab circles are Kim Dellow's (EKD01)


and Neville went on the other side (EDY09).

More dots on the top painted with Frescos's. 

The painted houses have been layered up inside. The flower on the outside is Jofy 42, and on the inside there is Darcy's EDY08, one of my very favourite stamps (along with Nev)

To say that I had nothing in mind other than I knew I wanted to make something, I'm pleased with how it turned out.

I'm also entering this into the MMM challenge as the colours on my piece remind me of their Summer days challenge.

Enjoy the football (yawn) and thanks very much for looking x
