HOUSE ATC'S


There is nothing better in my opinion than creating something from paper that is old. I love using old books that probably won't even be read again by anyone, and probably destined for the tip. So why not when painting or fiddling as I often do, use up the scraps of paint on an old book. I use the little bits that are left over on my paint palette, so I don't waste it and just paint randomly onto these pages. At some stage I will use the paper and in this case I have. I love the vibrant colours and I am leaning towards using more and more of these colours lately in my work. Don't get me wrong I love Vintage colours with a passion but for some reason I keep painting with bright colours.


These little houses are ATC size and for a swap on my group this month. I have used a bit of German Scrap for the roof and doodled the rest with rub-ons and bottle top stamps. I have chimneys on my house's because I have a chimney on mine IRL. LOL.................

These are gorgeous Elizabeth!! I love the bright colours too and I also think of myself as more of a vintage art girl most of the time.

These are so beautiful! I love the colors and the bird images! I'm wondering if you painted directly onto the old pages of vintage books? I have a large collection of vintage books and have been reluctant to use most of them for art, but if I could do something like this, I would try--
