Another Fabric Scrapbook Page

This will be the first page in my fabric album. I painted the canvas page with a landscape scene using acrylic paint. The house is raw canvas that I colored with Stampin' Up ink pads and water. I bought the fence at Joann's and I added the mini roses.

I created the tree by tearing circles out of patterned paper and then crumpling them. Then I tore into each circle to create an almost petal effect. Then I glued the circles one on top of each other and added the roses to the center. I used real branches for the tree trunk and cut the bird free-hand, then inked it to coordinate with the color scheme of the page.

I used the Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punch to create this butterfly. I am totally in love with this punch and while it was a little pricey, I can see myself using it a LOT. I punched the butterfly out of vanilla colored cardstock and inked it with the same way I inked the house.

This house is not anything like our house. We don't have roses and it's much more Victorian than our house is. I could never live in a fancy, frilly house like this, but I find myself admiring the Victorian Cottage style and it makes me happy. So this is my little fantasy house. In reality, I'm a much more casual, rustic girl. I guess that's why I had to add the roughness of the burlap to the roof of the house. :)

{Again, the canvas page, album and house are part of Donna Downey's Fabric Scrapbooking line and can be purchased from her website}

Love it! And I love this with the raw house so much better than the printed house - I was thinking I'll probably end up using the raw house too...and end up using the printed one somewhere else. LOVE the real tree branches and the picket fence!! I SOOO want Tim Holtz's new picket fence edge Sizzix die cut!!!
