★ a house---is just a house...

Sep 10, 2013

Want2Scrap and Susan K Weckesser are teaming up over the next couple of days to bring you inspiration using products from Susan K Weckesser and Want2Scrap!

I started with a 10x10 deep edge canvas...covered it with Golden Gel Medium and tissue paper, heat set to dry. began with a layer of Colbalt blue fluid acrylic from Golden and soon  realized it was a bit dark, so white washed with gesso...the grass is yellow golden green blended with some Big Brush Pens.

The sun is a few layers of paint heat set in between each layer, i wasn't quite happy to i just kept building colour.


It's been a while since I had so much fun with paints and mists and I love how this turned out.

the smaller chipboard houses were painted with Golden fluid acrylics then i applied the four step paint system from


Tattered Angels ( developed by Wendy Senger) and thats how i achieved that aged look on the houses, they actually look like real metal, but the photo doesnt show it as well.. The Susan K stamp was stamped with black tuxedo and coloured with Faber Castell big brush pens. I went over the black memento with a black faber castell pen.  i added some glossy accents to the lighter parts of the roof.  The Susan k stamp came with one sentiment and i felt i needed to add more so i typed up a house is not a home without a on my Ptouch and printed it on black on clear and then adhered it to pattern paper in my scrap bin.
