I have been doing a little and I mean little bit of cleaning in my craft room. (I need a big clean again to keep it under control) In doing so I went through my background scraps and tried to decrease the scraps pile. I re-organized my recent scraps and die cuts and pulled them out to try to make an eclectic series of houses. I tried to keep in the same color schemes for my backgrounds to coordinate the look and feel.
Beyond that the houses all began to take on a life of their own and changed the cohesiveness. As I worked through them I also began to use the inspiration of other challenges. This particular house is based on the glam grunge challenge at Mixed Media World and the Butterflies and Blossoms Challenge at Mixed Media Monthly.
For my final one I had this beautiful Memory Box Arch already cut and thought it would be pretty to do more of a church interpretation on my house. I added the silver embossing around the edges and bottom of the house. I then embossed the arch in silver. The rest were bits and pieces of leftover projects pulled together.
I had fun but I think I am going to try play a little bit more with the houses but create a painted village. I am loving the Paperartsy challenges as they have me thinking about different types of art mediums and how to use those ideas in papercrafting.
The MMM Challenge
Have a wonderful day!
