Crop Suey Challenge #4 - Use Your Scraps Challenge

Good morning! Crop Suey's challenge #4 is up so make sure to check it out! It's my turn to play and what a fun challenge this one is! You can only use scraps to make your project. All scraps should by rule be smaller than 4"! I keep everything so this was a perfect project for me! I have been inspired by Kate Mason lately and decided to try my hand at her style. I piled all my neutral scraps and cut them into smaller pieces ranging in many sizes. Then I used my oil pastel and coloured the sides of each piece then adhered them onto a piece of scrap piece of printer paper that I had (this was the only piece that was bigger than the rule :). Lots of piecing and the house was the same. I stiched zig zag stiches on the roof to mimic shingles and did lots of layering on the house. I painted the sky and grass with watered down acrylic paints and then used my charcoal pencil to outline. I also used scraps for the free hand scalloped border and just duplicated them to create the full border. The rub on is by Melissa Francis. This project is the cover of one of my family photo albums.

Make sure to hop on over and play! Have a great day - it's Friday and the weather is beautiful! Spring is on it's way!

Stacy this is wonderful-I am sorta obsessed with house shapes these days and am working on some little houses myself!
