Why is it that artists are so drawn to house shapes and imagery in art? Just like birds, this type of imagery and subject matter seems to often ripple throughout the creative world. I cannot help but join in from time to time.
As usual, lots of metal bits have been added to the project. Sometimes I just experiment and odd things I would not usually put together end up on a piece creating a cohesive focal, as in this case. To see all kinds fun goodies I used check out this link for Alpha Stamps.
The roof of the house is actually UTEE that I stamped into when it was still warm. A rubbing of copper gilders paste brings out the texture from this technique. I love how this element turned out.
Another trick I tried for the first time, coloring glitter. I wanted to use a coarse grain and I did not have the proper color. I used alcohol ink to dye it, and it worked really well.
I really like how this tiny house turned out. Working on a small scale can be rewarding as it can yield results quicker and I am such a hasty artist sometimes.
