* Vera Lane Studio: Pretty Little Houses


It's New Year's Eve and my day to post for Vera Lane Studio.

For my first post, I made a journal page with the Pretty Little Houses Collage Set:

The background was made by scribbling Gelatos onto the paper and blending with my finger. I added Neocolour 11 crayons to darken the edges and to frame the pages. White and black paint was splattered over the background, followed by some text stamping and some mark making with a white Posca pen. The little houses, hearts and sun were cut from the pdf collage sheet. I added some shading and some highlights and glued them onto the background - some washi tape serves to ground them. I added some violet Inktense pencil around the collage elements and ran a wet paintbrush around to add some shadows. I decided to add some die cut, lacy, paper border strips along the edges to lighten up the page a little. The lovely sentiment is from the Tall Town set.
