The Scrap n' Art designers received products from Linnie Blooms for the August issue and one of the items I got was a canvas fabric Mini File Album Kit. When the piece was sitting on my table, for some reason it looked like the outlined shape of a house and the file tab looked like a chimey. I could not get that image out of my mind, so that's exactly what I created with it!
To make it work, I had to cut it apart to fit the roof on and make it look like a more realistic house. I used Art Anthology Colorations sprays with some stencils on the canvas fabric pieces and really love how it turned out. The base of the piece is a canvas that I covered with Tim Holtz printed tissue paper and added more Art Anthology Colorations sprays. The little white picket fence pieces are decorations that I've had for years. I used some of these on my daughter's beach themed wedding cake and had left over pieces, so I held onto them waiting on the perfect project. The roof, door and windows are thick chipboard pieces that I hand cut the shape, gessoed, painted and decorated them with stamping and outlining with a white gel pen. I splashed and dripped some black paint here and there over the whole piece. Little blue flowers and a key tied to the door finish everything off.
I've been contemplating selling this in my Etsy shop, but I might just keep it myself :)
I'll be back soon to share more projects. Until then...
Hugs & Happy Craftin'!!
