Here is another triptych which I made inspired by the triptych challenge at PaperArtsy and in particular by a gorgeous example by Jo Firth-Young who is the designer of my favourite Jofy stamps. Her Bloom and Grow triptych was a horizontal rectangular one and I thought it would be fun to try and do one with the house stamp.
It was really fun to do. I cut the rectangles from thick cardboard packaging and brayered Smurf and Glass Blue freso finish chalk acrylics, then had fun with stencils and stamps on the backround. I love the house stamp, love that its got the word 'sanctuary' on it which is what everyone's home should be. I stamped, painted and cut out.
I really don't like fussy cutting but these trees, part of the house set, were just crying out to be cut out:
I die cut the letters from card which I had painted with London Bus, same as the house, then added a little stamping for interest:
Then I stuck it all down, mounting the house on foam pads with a tree partly behind. I punched holes with my trusty Crop-A-Dile and threaded cord from my recycle stash. I didn't have enough cord so will need to redo this when I get some otherwise I will have two spare holes on the bottom layer!
and layering the trees, leaving some unstuck for depth:
Triptychs are amazingly fun to do and they made lovely gifts.
