An Artists Home

Today's Challenge from Created By Hand is to .....

Create art using the house template created by Suzanne Cannon of Quietfire Design.
HOUSE TEMPLATE
Print it off and create your house! Think a traditional house or think outside the box! Use stamps, inks, paints, collage images or whatever you have to make your house!

About a million ideas came to mind when I saw this fabulous template. This is the first piece I finished.

I used various shades of Alcohol inks swirled together and then splattered as the background. Next I cut the window frame out and embossed all around it with gold embossing powder. The image behind the window is from Alpha Stamps.

The Tree (Tim Holtz) on the left hand side is stamped using timber brown StazOn, as is the brick on the right (Stampington & Co.). The word “Home” (Stampington & Co.) is gold embossed on purple paper and then I ripped the edges. The Word “Artist” (Tim Holtz) is stamped with brown ink on a very thin piece of veneer.

I finished off this piece with a bit of lace and a few glass leaf pieces.

Hope you enjoy. I am open to any and all types of comments.
