I have just finished the piece I was working on and I'm ready to post it as I promised. It's another house I made for the challenge Dans ma maison il y a... http://dansmamaisonilya.blogspot.com/. This week the theme was " a school boy/girl".
The idea for this project was born when I started to read Laurie Mika's book Mixed Media Mosaics (which I recommend with all my heart, it's really AMAZING!!!). I was dying to try what I was learning and the chance came with this new challenge.
I must say I worked very hard to finish it on time and I had my moments of doubt( many!!! LOL) and even fear that I would not be able to succeed., or that it would not turn up the way I wanted. But I remembered what Van Gogh said, that if you hear a voice within you saying "you cannot paint" then, by all means paint and the voice will be silenced. I didn't give up and now I'm really happy with the result. And the voice was silenced indeed. thank God! LOL
So, here is my entry for this week's challenge!

The house measures 6 1/2"x 9 3/4". I made the little tiles using polymer clay and then stamped, painted them with Stewart Gill acrylics, varnished and mounted them on a piece of wood. I have used also tissue paper, stamps, inks, rubons, metal charms, rhinestones and beads, collage paper, gel medium and UTEE. The frame Is made from a piece of grungeboard and then covered with UTEE.
I hope you'll like it! :)
