My Dream House

This Lo was for the shopping challenge on SIS. I picked Pink paint, fabric, and the word "funky". I talked to Lucy on sis the other night, and she was telling me to take my time and layer with the watercolors. So, i figured i would give patients a try lol. I made the background with layers of green and blue. I dripped pink and blue on top of that. Patterned paper is by Daisy D, I washed it with Gesso. I love this paper the most!!!! I made the grass by cutting a piece of green basic grey. I thought it lacked depth so i washed it with Gesso, and 2 colors of green on top of that. The letters are old creative imaginations, i put gesso on them too to mute the colors. I sewed on this lo too!!! I really like the sewing.....I knew i would i just needed to conqure my sewing machine fears :) In the end i super love the way it turned out......I have been cranking out stuff this week....I hope i can keep up this creative momentum!
