Valentine Houses (UK S, Gingersnap Creations and Theme Thursday Challenges)

My friend Linda is organising a house swap on the theme of Valentines over at UK Stampers. I have been browsing through the book In this House which features lots of intersting collaged houses. So I have had a go at making three houses in slightly different styles . Over at Theme Thursday the theme is hearts so I think these qualify...


mosaic of old transparency prints of my paintings layered over a gaby cajubrasil image with silver embossing powder frames

The theme over at Gingersnap Creations this week is embossing powder so this is my entry.


lots of layered paint, tissue paper, pastels and charcoal




textured painted wallpaper, scratched paint writing, pastels and charcoal
