New Challenge over at ABAC - F

((This project was inspired by Jennings644 and CreaBoetiek over on You Tube))

This month the challenge over at Anything but a Card is 'New Beginnings', there are so many interpretations of this theme.  I chose 'New Home'.

I used tissue for the background on my 12x18 canvas, I then painted and sprayed until I achieved the desired effect.

I cut shapes of houses freehand as it didn't need to be perfect - in fact quite the opposite.  I painted, used modelling paste, lace, stamps, ribbon, playing cards,inks - the list goes on lol - used quite alot of bits and pieces from my scraps.I used 2 different types of moss for the grass and trees.  The big post house with gilding flakes on the roof had the coloured (used dylusion sprays on it) fresh moss as grass and trees in the garden and the old unloved buildings had dried dead looking moss.
Sorry for overload on pics - couldn make up mind on what looked best lol.  

I do hope you have enjoyed your visit today.  Why not head on over to Anything but a Card and join in with the fun.  We would like to see you there.

Hugz and love
Ellapu aka Elaine (sometimes lol)
