Tee Town Tenement :D

My Mixed media house, I built after watching Tee Thompson's free online class on Wednesday :D
The theme of the class was to use up old "paint chips/skins". These are the chunks of paint you have to peel off your palette when you used too much and left it to dry :D
In the spirit of re-cycling, I dug out a canvas I made for a challenge over a year ago...
and gessoed it into submission...
I left the swirls for texture, and then painted the base background and "house" template in acrylic and white gesso "Tee" style.
Then I raided my collage "bit box" and went to town....
My house required a cocktail lounge, and the clock has no hands, because there is no wrong or right time in my house :D
close up of paint skins added for texture. Everything glued on with gloss gel medium :D
Collage bits from scrap box, June Macs Treasure bag, and my friend Donna :D 

enjoy :D XXX
