Points of Two - Week 21...

Hello and welcome to week Twenty-one of the Points of Two Project!  This week Kira suggested that we sketch.  I don't sketch, so this was a bit of a challenge for me.  I decided to give it a go with houses as I have been designing painted ones for some digital kits I am creating.  My approach to those was to simply paint papers and then cut out the house shapes and fill them in with more paints and inks.  Seemed easy enough to sketch them first and then paint.  I decided to scan the steps as I worked so you could see the progress on this one.

For this page I was inspired by the mixed media work of Francoise and by Alisa Burke's city scapes.  It was quite ironic that I found Francoise's blog after I began working on my little digital houses.  See Francoise's work HERE. See Alisa's city scape HERE.

I plan to extract the houses from this page and add them to my upcoming digi kit! :)

Have a  blessed day!
