House Book Page

As usual, I am behind on my art deadlines. I have to have a house book page in the mail ASAP. There is at least one thing that you can't really see in this photo. The entire background is painted with the new clear Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint. It will be available for purchase at Collage Stuff Halloween weekend.

I can't go into detail on how I made this. I could never make this exact same thing again. I've used images from the Collage Stuff Daisy, Catnip Designs Nesting and Collage Stuff Feathered Friends collage sheets. There's a brown bingo card blank in here. The word is torn from an English vocabulary card. I've used vintage text. Daisy is colored with Copic markers. I used weathered wood disress ink and archival coffee inks. Everything is dimmed down and distressed by using a Golden glaze and manilla paint. I used my crackle stamp and a new scroll type stamp that I just bought on sale at Hobby Lobby. Love those 50 off sales!

To sum up, it's all very weathered and distressed looking. I like doing this kind of art. It's not often that my muse cooperates! Now I just have to get the other side done.
