The prompt for Week 4 is "Home". I thought this would be quite a versatile prompt that can be interpreted in several ways.
Just a reminder, that anybody can take part in this challenge. There is an active Facebook group where you can upload your tag/card and talk to other members who are taking part. There is no pressure, you do what you can, when you can. I usually post the weekly prompts on a Sunday afternoon/evening or a Monday morning, it depends what I am up to. The previous prompts can be found by clicking on the button to the right hand side of the "home" button, just below the title of the blog.
For this week, I have made two samples on the theme of "Home".
For the top tag with the houses, I started by using a chevron stencil and Tim Holtz Distress inks in shades of "Spun Sugar" and "Victorian Velvet" to give the pink shades. I then cut out a section of patterned papers with houses on and coloured the central house in pink. I cut the edges staggered to add interest to the tag. Using my Brother P-touch gadget, I printed out "Our House In The Middle of Our Street" in four sections and stuck it down. I die cut the arrow and coloured it with a Promarker and adhered it pointing to the central pink house. I added a dotted edge to the tag using a black pen and some sticky adhesive gems to add some interest to the plain chevron area.
For the second tag with the tree. I started by using two Distress inks with a moist paintbrush and created the blue background. I drew the tree on a piece of brown cardstock and then coloured it with Promarkers before positioning and sticking to the tag. For the nest and birds, I used stamps that came free with a magazine. I stamped onto white card and again coloured with Promarkers and then cut them out.
