Hello all my Friends in ART!
I'm here to share with you one of the great things about an epiphany!
This paper mache house really caught my eye somewhere...I think it was Hobby Lobby or Michael's.
And the cool thing is the roof comes off!
I covered it with Tim's Tissue Wrap-Composer and Terminology using Glue-n-Seal.
Then I added all kinds of Distress Inks, and Distress Stains....I just couldn't get what I wanted, so I kept adding color here and there.
After that I started to stamp with Jet Black Archival Ink and Mixed-Media, Steampunk, and Remnants from Tim, and Doodle Parts from Dylan Reaveley created the leaves on the roof.
Then I decided to make DOORS! Black chipboard and plain CB that have had all kinds of Embossing Powders thrown on them! I LOVE how they turned out.
They were my late night Epiphany!
I used Embossing Powders on the 3 mini numerals, and Alcohol Inks on the Wings(Adornments Regal) and the antenna...that's what I call the thing on top of the chimney.
The sign is made with CB, jump rings, and the screw eyes from Idea-ology.
The Word Band is highlighted with Snow Cap Acrylic Paint and added with a couple of Hitch Fasteners.
The Foundations were perfect for lifting the piece up.
I added Butterscotch Alcohol Ink to the Clock Key and left the Mini-Gears and Label Pulls natural.
The sign is cut from the Destinations Paper Stash.
The Label Pulls above the doors are supposed to serve as awnings and Address Names for whoever would live in this little box...I mean building.
I love the Red Hitch Fasteners for the Word Keys.
Here is the assemblage for the antenna...Foliage, Faucet Knob, and Hitch Fastener...all colored with Alcohol Inks and a brush.
Sometime the stamps and the underlying tissue paper fight each other (like here), but I didn't really care. The overall affect was what I wanted.
The Box Corner and Spinner are also inked. The Mini Gear die was used to cut CB over Metal Foil Tape. The Timepiece has a thick layer of Glossy Accents.
The Hanger Clips had the top clipped off and added just for fun.
Various pieces of CB add dimension to Salvage Stickers and Paper Stash from Lost and Found, Seasonal, and Destinations.
The last thing I do is add all the Pen Stitching and Dots to edges as you can see here. And I shadow the letters and numbers with my Pumice Stone Distress Marker.
I filled in some and outlined the leaves to make them more contrasting. I like the way they shine on the accents.
I picked out Names from the Adverts stamp collection to use for the awning signs.
So there it is, after 44 brads I'd only poked a hole in my finger once, but boy, does that bleed and throb the next day!!!
