What Makes Your House Your Home?

Pin It

Another Soul Food lesson.  A little house to represent your home to hang on your wall.
This was the first time I had done any art on a wooden panel, but I was really pleased with how it turned out.

As you can see I used pictures from around the internet to represent the different things that go on in our home and means a lot to me or us.  I knew I also wanted to include something I had drawn, but I couldn't draw it small enough to go on this piece, so I drew it larger,

then scanned it into the computer and printed it out the size I wanted.

First I painted the panel black, then put the blue over the top and pencilled in the house with a few rooms.

I printed and cut out the images I wanted to use and made sure they fit.

Then the rooms were made by layering up book paper. Yes, that's more of the German book paper I used in an earlier class.

Lots of paint and glue later and I got to this.

Then finally I finished it off with a bit of pen and distressing the blue paint in the sky a little bit.

The piece is supposed to be finished off with a layer of encaustic wax but I'm not buying all that just for one piece.
