Hello crafty friends! Today I would like to share with you my house wall hanging! This set of 3 is from the Birdhouse Wall Hanging Set, and I have modified them to be some fun little mixed media houses.


You can see in these photos that I have had some real fun with the background on these. I love doing mixed media and I started with a coat of gesso, then layered on some sprays to give a colorful effect.

After I used the sprays, I got out my stamps from Rubbermoon and my clay. I made impressions in the clay with the stamps, then used mica powders to color the clay. Once the clay was baked I was able to add them to the little houses. I also used some of the same stamps from Rubbermoon in the background of the houses. I stamped them on with some Stazon Black Ink. As a final touch I used some watered down white paint to create some splotches on the houses to give it a nice shabby look.


I used some words from the Words and Phrases 1 set on each of the tops of the houses and added some flowers in matching colors to finish them off.


I added some metallic ribbon from my stash to attach the houses together in a row to hang up. I love how they turned out!

I hope you like my project I have shared with you today!  Check out all the great goodies in Gina's Store!
