Mosaic Monday - House Canvas
I started by creating a gradient background from blue at the top to earthy colors at the bottom using artist pigments Carribean Blue, Laguna and Yellow Citron. I painted yellow onto watercolor for the bright windows. I cut my house from white textured card stock. The main body, the roof and chimney. I cut out windows and framed them with paint. I painted the door and cut it out. I painted a path way to the door and the tree trunk in darker colors. I cut out the foliage for the tree and added birds and flowers. I crunched and stained tissue paper in green and adhered it to the bottom of the canvas to create grass. Added some clouds in the sky, smoke from the chimney and a red heart in the peak of the roof.
Submitting this to Mosaic Monday hosted my Judith at Lavender Cottage.
