Today is my first "official" post with the Susan K. Weckesser Creative Team and we are celebrating Home Sweet Home. My first idea was to make a card but I wanted to try something different. On a larger scale. I had a chalkboard vinyl bulletin board that I have not used yet, so what better time than now as I plan on keeping track of my new responsibilities. Susan's new team already feels like family - another Home Sweet Home for me.
On the board,which is on the closet door of my creative space, I have our upcoming blog themes along with a calendar with my dates marked. Susan has so many great house stamps for me to work with -- I chose 4 of my favorites .
I started out by using many of my paper scraps and stamping the houses on different papers so that I could paper-piece some of them. The yellow floral and green scribbly roofs are made with some scraps of adhesive-backed fabric. I used Susan's line of Colorbox Color Pop Archival Dye Ink in Mystery to stamp all of the images.
I punched out circles of Susan's Color Burst paper and placed Doubleclick Skittles in their centers for added dimension. A few other creative touches are a sequin for a doorknob and white polka-dots on the roof scallops using my favorite Uni-Ball Signo Angelic White Gel pen
For more details on a watercolor technique I used and other creative touches, please check out a more detailed description of all supplies used ( and more pictures ) on our blog - My Sweet Earth . I'd love for you to leave a comment there on my post and continue to follow us. Thank you for being a part of my creative journey-- I feel so at home with this fabulous team !!
