Newspaper House

This is my newspaper house for this week's Journal 52 challenge. I began by putting a light coat of gesso on a piece of newspaper. Then I stenciled this Carolyn Dube stencil over it.  I used a small journal so the darling steps to this house don't show. You will see it again in all it's glory I'm sure.

I stenciled a few branches using a Club Scrap stencil and then added fall leaves by using the tip of a small stencil brush and craft paint.  I added a bit of yellow with my finger so it would appear the lights were on in the house.

  1. I love this Boo. It immediately reminded me of a Christmas image that shows the lights on behind the windows. I also love the gorgeous tree in the background and all its colours. :o))

  2. Boo, this is great! I love the newsprint behind the windows.

  3. THis is so original, Boo! I love your vibrant colors. Keep up the good artistic work!

  4. Hi Boo,
    I'm finding your blog from your guest post with Julie Balzer. I love houses and this is great. I love how you can see the text in the background.

  5. I definitely see your vision. I love houses and trees! You can use them together or use them alone and they always make wonderful images for one' heart.
