Everyday Everywhere Everything
I found these little houses on Gene’s Blog http://blogdelanine.blogspot.com/ and I’d like to try to make a few of them with fimo clay
6/17/09 Chunky Houses Swap
I’m swapping little houses again. This time I’m thinking about using my crazy watercolor pages with weird winding shape homes. I have tons and tons of completed watercolor paper that I need to use! I just keep making more and more of the stuff.
My concern is that the houses look like houses and not just swirvy squares. I want to find a way of making the trimmings chunky and homesque. But I know I want to use my bright color combinations with flecks of metals and embossing powders. I hope I can pull it off.
I like how this lace is laid out – I’m going to remember this and try to replicate it with ribbon and paper as well.
I haven’t had the energy or the inspiration to work on any projects the last few nights. But today I found this picture:
I think I may use this idea to finish up an area that I’ve been working with without saticfaction. Or maybe it won’t work out.
I had a good time relaxing last night with my Book and craft project. I used watercolor paper, painters tape, Gesso, markers and watercolor brushes for this project.
This is the final look
So far it has the feeling of the fabric from a Du Buh Du Design’s ad. I’m still thinking about my circus inspirations for my next round of little houses.
I don’t know where you find the colored tape. But if you painted masking tape with gesso and a color it might work? Perhaps painter’s tape would work better. It’s something to thing about.
I found another cool idea today. This Eiffel Tower is on sale but there isn’t a description of what exactly it’s make out of. I love the color scheme and think that maybe it’s paper? What if you had ten of these in all sorts of colors and patterns. That would look really cool!
I also love the Crowns made from newspaper. What great patterns.
I want to remember this circle and thread design. I wonder if I could do this with paper?
I like this sketchy quality of the houses. I really like windows and steps to the doorways. Let’s see where this leads me.
I’m really into making little houses right now.
