My whimsical houses with thoughtful words....

These were created with upcycled printed canvases gessoed over then painted. The roofs are corrugated cardboard dry brushed with white paint. I made the hearts out of paper coasters that had a black and white print which I stamped over using black ink with a pattern stamp. The butterfly wings I found in a children's book. I also used the corrugated cardboard for the windows. All of the materials I used were recycled. Creating art of what I have on hand.
As my Grandmother used to say: use it up or wear it out. She was recycling before
the word was even born.

I love these houses.. and will put the originals in the local market next Tuesday. I also scanned these and will make them into greeting cards. Three in a set. Fun!
ta..have a wonderful weekend!
