Collage - more houses

Collage of three houses, with quotation, vintage stamps and old hardware.

My three house collages.
This is the third in a series of three house collages.  I didn't start out looking to make a series of houses, but they evolved.  The first house, at the far left, was completed sometime last fall.  It was a stand alone piece that I really enjoyed.  I tried a new technique of using foam core to elevate the elements of the collage off the canvas.  I like the look, especially used with the house form. 
The second house is the near right.  I finished this one last month.  It's new element was the use of the fabric pattern as paper.  I love the texture and translucency of the tissuey pattern paper.  The words add a nice touch, too.
The last is the set of three houses.  I incorporate several elements from other collages, including the use of vintage stamps, hardware and game pieces.
I think the set is complete.  They each stand alone, but complement each other, as well.

The road to a friend's house is never long.

  1. Very nice! Love the little domino chimney!

  2. Hinges as doors & windows. Now this is art even my husband would appreciate! :-) Love the quote too.

  3. Three houses - SOLD! More at the Purple Poppy!
