My Happy House

Isn't this just adorable? My last post was about my wonderful hosts on my trip up north. Sylvia makes these sweet little houses that I think she should do some classes on, don't you? Hers had more painting but of course I didn't want to copy them exactly, so I depended mostly on the paper for mine. I just couldn't get these houses out of my mind, when yesterday, I was supposed to be packing up for a major big 2 day show and I came across a blank 5x7 canvas. A blank canvas! The little houses in my mind, I set about creating my own. I just had to get it out of my system! So out came the papers, punches, buttons and Mod Podge. I bought these wonderful metal numbers from the Tim Holtz collection a while back and thought they would be the perfect house numbers! Happy with my little canvas, I continued my packing. Hope to see some of you at the mission in Oceanside this weekend!
