Sorry I have been AWOL the last few days… I really need a big crafting session to make lots of things I can then post about when I’m too busy to craft that actual day. The past few days, including Sunday ended up being exactly that … so fortunately this project I finished on Saturday has been delivered to the recipient so I can blog about it now.
So why so busy? Well Sunday actually turned into a proper steps competition with the hubby (I won) plus I got the urge to clean which is a rarity and needs seizing on when it happens. Then back to work Monday and so crafting becomes harder as I never want to clear the desk, make it messy and clear it all again in one night… plus I got all the ironing done so go me, housewife of the year for those two days!
And work… well I’ve had some fabulously productive days but they have been a little on the long side! Next two days will hopefully be a bit shorter so I might, just might get some crafting time in!
Anyways… let’s get to the crafting shall we?
My friend Chris challenged us for this month to make a house themed something that is no bigger than 6″ and when I saw the challenge I knew immediately what I wanted to use… the Art Parts shapes that has been sitting in a box in my craft room at least 3 years if not more!
I got them out immediately and added gesso to each of them… plus a canvas board I was inspired to make a start on too!
Next day I added paint and stamping and stencilling and texture paste and ended up with two little houses.
So then I left them to sit for a week in plain view where I could decide what was needed to finish off.
I decided some definition on edges, a sticker sentiment and some tiny bits of doodling with paint pens. And then done!
Absolutely love both of these… decided to send the big one and keep the small one as a keepsake of the swap for now… it may end up as part of something else eventually, you never know?
Hope you enjoyed this little foray into mixed media and the little houses.
