Creative Wednesday - Make a House

Continuing on my skinny page addiction, this is another one for the Creative Wednesday challenge of "make a house". I had this piece of watercolour paper that I had previously painted, stamped and splattered and its gentle iridescent mauve and green colouring "spoke" to me yesterday so I used it as the base for the page.

The main part of the house is made from a "special collection" envelope (I'm recycling some very old church collection envelopes that my Mum gave me when her church was getting rid of them - I love their small size and naturally aged look). I'm thinking I should have coloured the envelope a bit differently as it blends a bit too much with the background but I was having a tone on tone day I guess! The rest, apart from the little Collections frame, is made up of little bits and pieces in my scrap box with liberal lashings of white gel pen of course.

The rest of my weekend creative time went on working on my "Twelve Days of Christmas" gifts , making some ATC trades and painting samples for my Textured Surfaces workshop. Multiple painting layers mean none are finished yet but I have about twenty pieces scattered around in various stages so eventually I am going to have a lot of pictures to share!
