Skype Craft - Ken's Houses



Hello! It seems like a while since I have posted on here. I have been doing some online classes during the lockdown period but either haven't got round to taking photos to share or haven't finished them!!! Still crafting just not finding the motivation to blog.

However a week or so ago I had another Skype Craft session with Alison Bomber and Brenda Brown - actually it was across 2 sessions as we chatted so much we didn't finish the first time (and we had to allow Alison's crackle to crackle!)
Brenda's lovely husband Ken has been busy and cut us all some wooden houses - so we all worked on the same substrate.


I painted my houses with Summer Sky Fresco paint and then randomly coloured on Tim Holtz printed tissue paper (on the back). Having added this to the substrate I added some book page scraps, some drips and some leftover stamped card. I also added some extra paint highlights to help with the colour composition.


I stamped a quote (an old Tim Holtz stamp set) on some painted card and found some leaf and butterfly embellishments that I painted and stamped on.

The sides - that you cant see too well are also stamped.


Pleased with these - so much so I have them in my living room - to remind me to challenge myself occasionally!

My lovely friends have both excelled themselves with their designs.....you can find all the details on their blogs.

  1. Absolutely gorgeous colour combination - not sure I've got Celery - one to add to the collection! The bold florals of the tissue are so cool, and I love the "step" of sepia text paper around the foot of the houses. A treat, as always, to play "together"!

Thanks so much for leaving a comment. I seem to be getting a lot of spam comments at the moment (updated March 2020) so unfortunately I have had to switch moderation back on - but I will publish your comment ASAP! Thanks again. Nikki
