Creative Wednesday - a new challenge blog!

I happened to check out Marg's blog this morning and found that she and Sarah have started a new weekly challenge site for Mixed Media/Stamping/Collage Artists who love to create Art. It is called Creative Wednesday and this week the challenge is to create a row house so of course I had to join in - I love little houses! Check it out and join the fun.

Here is the first house for my row. I am going to create a whole row, making one whenever I only have a few minutes to play. The pretty brad at the top means the scan is a bit blurry. The second picture (when at full size) shows the real size of the house so you can see they are pretty small!

I have covered a Collections chipboard house with a collage paper I made of white and cream bits and pieces and then photocopied. The edges are dabbed with Antique Linen Distress Ink. This house had a window so I have put a little picture (of Sarah Bernherdt?) behind the window and added doodles, a rub-on border and some words from a very old copy of Gone with the Wind.

And while I was typing up this post I received a blog comment from the lovely Sephi telling me she has given me the "I love your blog" award. Thanks Sephi - I love yours too (always fully of beautiful and creative stamping and collage). The rules are - (1) The winner can put the logo on their blog. (2) Link the person you received your award from. (3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs. (4) Put links of those blogs on yours. (5) Leave a message on the blogs you have nominated. So I am passing this on to seven of the many blogs I love - Susie, Susan, Carole, Elizabeth, Anne, Martha and Kelsey.
