Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge: House Rules

Good morning! I am so happy to share with you all my mixed media dt board for this weeks challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge:  House Rules.  I have been wanting to make a "house" board for quite some time....I wanted it to express what home means to me. So you will see along the right side of the board words that mean "home" to me :)
I have a few photos of the process to show you.
I started with a piece of hand made paper I made during the summer at a girls scrap get-a-way :)


A couple of close-ups to show you some added dimension with some stencils, stamps, ink, and pan pastels.
Here I have paper-pieced various patterned papers for my house scene and added a Wendy Vecchi resin heart....my last one :( I know what I will be ordering soon!!!
Below are a few close-ups to show you some added detail of rub-ons, Tim Holtz idea-ology Foilage, and Melody Ross word stickers :)




It is at this point when I am creating my boards, where I want my board to look more "artsy" or "distressed" ...you know what I mean, BUT I just can't do it!!! I will sit with it for awhile and see...



You are going to be totally blown away by what the rest of the design team has created for your inspiration!!!!....please check them out at Simon Says Stamp and Show. I would love to see your take on our House challenge. One lucky participant will be randomly drawn to win a $50 dollar store voucher from our very generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp :)

Thanks for stopping by to visit! Hugs, TRace

Trace, your house is so wonderful! I really love the colors and the papers you've used to create such a feast for the eyes! That background is so beautifully done. I love everything about it...the colors, the random stamping and stenciling. Love the contours of the land and sun. That gold really is striking against the sky. The house is so cute. Love the hearts coming out of the chimney and the metal flowers in the yard. And... I love the words running down the right side. So cute!
