From the Studio Faith Hope and Love

I have been busy this week getting ready for a sale on Saturday. I have been making a good collection of mixed media house collage paintings. I created three medium size ones on 1x4's and painted a solid color on the background and then added a crackle finish on top. I really like how these make me think of winter.

Each ones is different. I added doodles after paper piecing each of the houses. I even added rubons for added texture and then used various other mixed media techniques to finish each piece.

I really like the way the crackle is very different on each one. This just happened and I was a happy surprise. I applied the crackle medium the same way on each of the pieces but each on turned out different.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and I look forward to any of my local readers visiting me at Antiques and Stuff in Covington on Saturday.

Oh these are so sweet! I love your houses! Crackle effects are my favorite! {I did a whole wall in or living/dining area that is just crackle effect!} Have a great weekend!
