Mixed Media Monday - Transparencies



I had the honour of being asked to particicpate in a row houses swap with many talented artists in blogland. We could make the houses tall and skinny, short and squat or whatever shape took our fancy. I used a template from the cover of a chipboard book because I really liked its size and shape. Each house was decorated differently but on almost all of them I used printed acetate. I like the lovely depth that it gives to backgrounds. Here are a couple of examples of my houses and my submissions for Mixed Media Monday this week with the theme of "Transparencies". They are also my entries for a wonderful new challenge blog called Dans ma Maison Il y a. The theme on it this week is "Une Petite Fille".
