LP houses.

Here is my third entry into the PaperArtsy Challenge of Doors, Windows and Architecture.
Inspired by the graffiti buildings which Darcy found on the intro, I decided to do a cityscape made up of Lynne Perrella images.
I drew a few shapes onto PA Heavy stamping card, masked off some of the walls and stamped with a variety of LP stamps. A few fresco paints, bit of doodling with Posca pens and decided upon a map of the French coastline around Roscoff for my background.
For distance, I drew the outlines of buildings and scribbled Stabilo Black pencil and washed over it with water.
Finished off with a Th rub on!

It's a bit crazy but was good fun. I might have a go at another one in muted tones next!

I will also enter this into the challenge..ART-Journal_Journey Challenge, Out and about.

  4. Fabulous page, love the old houses with pop colours and map's background. xx

  5. Its a fabulous journal page, I loved seeing the bright houses and the map you used in the background.

  6. Such brilliant ideas and inspiration, thank you for sharing! The houses look amazing with the stamped sections and the way you have positioned the map to create clouds is amazing. Visiting from AJJ and wishing you a great weekend! J :-)

  8. That's a really cool page. I love the map sky, and then I noticed the details in your buildings. Wow.

  9. Hazel, I love this entry in the Paper Artsy Door Challenge. The buildings in the foreground are great and then the background ones really set them off.

    Thank you for commenting on my blog. I have put a figure in the windows of some of my Halloween houses - mostly a witch silhouette, but that is a great idea for future houses.

  10. Absolutely in love with these LP houses - what a fantastic little city you've created. Magical idea, brilliantly executed - who could ask for anything more?!
