I love words, they often act as the springboard for my ideas and so I was thrilled when I saw we had 'Word Play' as a challenge at Country View Crafts Challenges this month. I took my moleskin journal and roughly drew some houses in pencil and then wrote, by hand, everything home means to me around the houses.
Then I coloured the houses in with Portfolio Pastels. I painted the background with watered down paint and revealed some of the writing in areas by wiping them with a baby wipe. I live at number 4 so I stamped a heart on that roof. I also added two Dylusions birds with funky hats.
I love these pages, as much for the personal message in the background as well as for the lovely bright houses in the foreground! I hope you'll join in with us this month!
