In the middle of our street...

Half term here, and things are just a tad manic....... I still, just about (!), managed to get my Creative Expressions DT project made for today, so here it is...the fabulous Art Houses by Sam Poole featuring again!
All the colour in this piece was created by spraying Cosmic Shimmer mists, both in the background..
and on the houses themselves!
I used Golden Fish (the orange colour), Golden Mint (green), Bilberry Crush (purple), Teal Wash (turquoise) with splats of Midnight Blue.
The base is a simple piece of cardboard, with some extra corrugated card added along the bottom. I painted the whole thing white before I started spraying. This means the colours stay nice and bright rather than fading into the brown cardboard colour!
I sprayed another piece of cardstock, and stamped the houses over the colour using Archival ink. Stamped again onto plain white, then the windows and doors cut out and added to the colourful ones!
Once the houses were stuck down, I added a little few printed circles, and highlighted them with white pen...
Of course, the house 'In the Middle of Our Street' got an extra big circle to emphasise it!
I love spraying, so quick, and the colour combos created are so much fun!!
