We had a lovely morning playing in our journals using pages torn from a book. Somehow it just seems wrong tearing pages out, but once you start, well I suppose the book isn't a huge amount of use any more and so the more torn pages, the easier it gets!
I already had the background done on these pages and was wondering what to do with them. Jenni had already started creating her houses from the book pages and so I joined in.
I started by cutting a square followed by a triangle (ie house and roof) and then spritzed with Dylusion inks using blue and turquoise. I tore pieces for the windows and door and spritzed using Heidi Swap colour shine which has a shimmer through it. Next a chimney was added and then the various bits were glued in place.
The second house (on the left) was done the same way but with a bit of extra colour added. When I was at the Papercraft show recently, one of the stall holders was demo-ing adding a puddle of Dylusion ink to a paper towel and using that to add small bits of colour, so I thought I'd give it a try. So the pink areas on my house are done using this method. The ink soaks into the paper towel a bit so the colour is more just to highlight but I was quite happy with how it finished off the house.
The title was a left over piece of print, stencilled in turquoise and white linen. The bottom was stamped and painted using a little brush directly into the ink.
The houses were highlighted using a charcoal pencil, thanks Jenni, and to finish off, a couple of ink spatters to the background. I think I will continue the house theme on the other page but ran out of time today.

Anyhow, must dash as I have a couple of classes to prepare for next week and I've barely started.
Thanks for visiting and always enjoy reading your comments.
