Home Sweet Home...

The final set of new Lin Brown stamps I treated myself to, (so far) was one of the houses sets.. the skinny houses I was calling them to myself.

Whilst I'd been working on some of the other projects, I had been wiping the excess paint, as I usually do, onto a journal page - this time, the teeny A6 sized one. I knew when I saw these super little dwellings, that the would need someone to live there, and from aeons ago, I have a load of Art Impressions pixies...

 The page has all of the new LB Limited Edition paints and some Snowflake to knock it all back a little, I stamped the houses on white card and used my Inktense pencils to colour them,

stamped one of the swirly grass/flowers from ELB16 before I stuck the houses down (imagine a path leading from the one in the background as it looks as if it's just hanging...)

and sat the little fella on the roof - which, although it doesn't really show, is layered up for dimension

Just a bit of fun for a sunny Sunday!

This is lovely Helen. And you got to use your last set... I haven't used the LP ones yet - might have to wait until in the week!

Love the excess paint background - doesn't look like a clean up page at all! Glad you got to play with more of your new stamps Xx

How ironic I have just purchased a house stamp to do a journal page, it will also be a great stamp for someone moving. Love these funky houses.

Hugs Eliza
