Little Houses and Altered Book

I've joined an altered book round robin with Colette and a group of other Australian artists titled Sense of Place, the idea was based on Angela Cartwright and Sarah Fishburn's book In This House. So far I have constructed my book.

I'm not sure how I'm going to bind it yet, or for that matter how I am going to alter it. I think I am going to use the Raven/crow/black bird theme, if only I could find my raven stamps that I bought from Michelle Ward. You would think after 4 months in a new house you might be unpacked - not in this house!

Since I was playing around with the house theme - I created a row of little houses. Decorated using vintage ruler paper. It was just a bit of fun but I'm happy with how they have turned out.

What a charming set of houses! And what a clever way to use the ruler paper - I thought at first you had cut up old rulers (fun - if you could find them).
