I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

Dolls Houses (or Houses made of Dolls)

I warned you it was going to be busy here at Words and Pictures.  If you're looking for this week's Design Team make for Fun With ATCs, you'll find it here - I'd love it if you had time to check it out; I'm rather fond of this one.  And there's a card (shhh - whisper it - a C*******s card) over at Artistic Outpost today too...

But I'm here this evening with PaperArtsy sneak peek number three (you'll find project one here and project two here if you've missed anything).  

I also warned you things were going to get weird this week...  To witness the full strangeness, hop over to PaperArtsy.  Personally, I think real-life stress must have got to me!


Hope you enjoy yourselves... and thank you all again for your amazing support and feedback.  You are fantastic, and I'm so grateful.  See you again soon.

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.

Great colours and love those whacky little buildings. I like the long skinniness of this project and the technique for the grass. Great stuff. X

Brenda Brown said...

I can see you have had several 4 am sessions getting all your projects done. What an incredibly fun piece of art, so inventive and wacky is definitely the right word in the nicest possible sense. Thanks for bringing ink us your creativity and inspiration in this way.

Apart from loving the colours and creative background Alison, it's such an inspirational piece.

Love the 'train' it is more wonderful than weird I think. Amazing that it started as piece of plain wood.

Have a good day

Love Chrissie xx

Calling it catwalk certainly appeals to me Alison. Quirky comes to mind and I love that you put the gorgeous button head stamp at the end.

She looks the sanest of the bunch and is looking back on the others thinking "what the heck" ...!!!

Definitely reminds me of a Monty Python sketch (not sure if you remember them).

Crafty hugs from Shirl x x

Wonderful Alison! I hope you have a special place in your new home to hang this beauty. It almost dares the observer to take him/herself too seriously. I went to Paper Artsy and saw this but for some reason was unable to leave a comment. I really thought that the wood could have stood alone with the sky and grass and yes I love your grass. One day you will see me using some of your ideas. Not only are they wonderful ideas but the tutorials are good too.
I went to see your Mom's doll house museum when you all were setting it up. I guess I should go back again. Your whole family is so creative.
