Wooden Houses

Martin cut the corners off a couple of pieces of wood for me to make houses and as I got my order of DecoArt media acrylics I decided to try them out. I gesso'd them and gave the bottoms a couple of coats of paint, one in pyrrole orange and the other in hansa yellow.

I masked the bottom off and painted the tops in ultramarine blue and primary magenta.

I then randomly added some stencilling using various colours of media acrylics and stencils. 

Next I outlined some of the stencilling using posca pens and added dots etc with more paint and the end of a paintbrush. Once totally dry I am going to give them a coat of varnish.

These are the sides.

And these are the other sides.

I took inspiration for these from this GelliArts FB page.

All the paints and mediums are from the DecoArt media range.
