Challenge: House of Stains

House of Stains
5"x7" Shaped Journal Page

This little house was created for this week's dans ma maison challenge, "House of Stains" (il y a une tache). It was created on gessoed chipboard from a cereal box. Materials used include Prismacolor pencils, watercolor pencils, acrylics, stamps and Pitt pens. The edges were defined with a gold marker, hole-punched with a Cropadile and then beaded with glass beads strung on fine gauge copper wire. Gesso was used to make the stains.

Terry, this is Amazing!!!! I viewed it close up to see all your tiny beads which I think really just set's it off. I love the look, don't know if I would have the patience to try it though LOL.

Thank you SO much, Lynn, for your comments! This was a bit of a departure for me . . . got a bit more traditional. Patience IS the key word, especially when you accidentally knock over the little dish of glass beads LOL!
Hugs,
Terri :) xoxo
