House Journal

It's been a long time coming but this is the last of the Circle of Friends round Robbin Journal Entries for this rotation. 

Andrea's Journal was in the shape of chipboard houses, she asked participants to do whatever they wanted but no personal photo's.

So I decided to make a "Tea House" out of one of the houses.

I stained the book pages with tea and brushed some tea leaf bits onto the page.

I made the window frame out of paper clay, painted it white, stained it with tea and then stamped it with a script stamp. 

The opposite side of the house is what's going on inside, beyond the window. 

Yesterday I shared a tutorial on how to add texture to foil without an embossing system.  Well, here is that project in it's entirety.

You can view the tutorial HERE

This is my "House of Blue's" which was the first idea that popped into my head.  I'm not 100% pleased with how it turned out but they can't all be perfect, right.

I used some of my paperclay stars (available in my store) to fill in some of the open spaces. 

And that's that.  I had a great time creating for this round of journals and I can't wait to start the next journal rotation.
