    Just Steampunk! Volume 1 2011


Cloth Paper Scissors, a collage, mixed media artist magazine, had a reader challenge…build a home for their little neighborhood.  The mini abode could be made from fabric, paper, metal, found objects, anything but it could not exceed 1/2 lb.  There was a pattern to use and the house was to be that size.  Well, I love a challenge.  I made my house called “Liberty House” fashioned after our home. I used basswood for the frame, then covered it with Grungeboard.  I cut out the windows, glued acetate that I tinted with alcohol ink onto the back, made shutters from the window cut outs, then used Glossy Accents to fill the window openings.  The chimney was made from basswood that I textured with a hot knife. And  to finish it off, there is Lady Liberty  in front  just like at my home!  Yesterday I learned that Liberty House was a finalist…so off it goes to Cloth Paper Scissors to be possibly featured in an up coming issue.
