AlphabeThursday - H is for House


Home is where the heart is.


After I drew my house I just had to add those words to my art journaling page.  I'm not real happy with the blue acrylic sky, but I had to put the paint on heavy, to cover up some things I didn't like.  The great thing about art journaling is that it's all for you, the artist, so you can make mistakes, learn from them, and move on.  Goodness knows, I do that all the time!


House is a perfect word for a children's alphabet book.  And for my AlphabeThursday blog post.  I wonder how many other bloggers used Home or House for their alphabet word this week...  You can check out all the entries for the Letter H on Ms. Jenny's blog series HERE.

I love how you wrote around the hose and the colors you used! It's great that you can just another layer if you don't like the first one :)

Lovely picture and sentiment - many things make a house a home - but mainly the people in it x

'House' is a great H-word! (I used it too!) I like your drawing too.

Thank you for visiting my H-post. I am giving you an extra link as 'First Commenter'.

Love the photo of you sitting on the park bench with a giant Lucy reading a book!

Best wishes,
Anna

Cute polka dot house! Acrylics are pretty forgiving; if you don't like it just paint over it! Heaven knows I've had to do that a time or two....

Oh, I like the colors and the words around the house. The overall composition is eye-catching and pretty. You're making a great alphabet art book (journal).

Deb,

We're definitely on the same wave-length. After all, I also chose H is for House. :)

Greetings from a stormy Munich,
