Triptych - Houses

Hello everyone,
The Mirror Crack'd Challenge this month is hosted by the talented Rita Marie and the theme is 'Triptych.'

I loved making this canvas, the little houses were so much fun to put together.
The substrate on the canvas is stamped tissue paper with Gesso and glazed over in Raw umber and Nickel Azo Gold.

The second substrate is a wash of watercolours.
Base for my houses.
The roof templates painted in Black Acrylic.
 The painted fabric with scraps of cardstock for windows and doors.
Adding more depth and stitching.
Rusting up the elements.
Adding the trim and the fence lines.
Gold paint to the roof.
close up.
Completed the canvas and finally adding embossing paste through a script stencil.
There are wonderful creations on this theme over on the TMC Blog.
Hope you can participate in this Challenge this month with us.

Entering these Challenges.
Love To Create Challenge:Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes.

Have a great week
