Houses feature a lot in my dreams and in my paintings, so when I came across Lauren Gray's art and her blog featuring the houses she had turned into wall sculptures I thought I'd lke to make my own houses with a bit of colour.
I already had a bit of timber lying around so I had a go at making a house myself and realised that I really need a mitre box. My dad has a mitre saw and helped me to make the houses. Then I sanded them, coated them with a sealer, and have gessoed some and collaged scrapbooking papers on to the 'worse' bits of wood. In the next couple of days I will paint and varnish them as well as add windows, doors etc.
Whilst out at the shops today I found this wooden tray and scrapbooking frame to use as frames. These I will also gesso and paint in a background too. Stay tuned over the next week or two for updates on the progress of my little houses.
