I used a wood block as my surface. These are great finds in the trash piles of new home construction sites. My other "house" item was masking tape. I used them to make the coconuts, and stenciled the texture on them with drywall tape...my last house item. I also used some items from our generous sponsor, "Die Cuts With A View". DCWV has new items that include amazing textured papers like corrugate, burlap, canvas, even chalkboard and white board stacks! I used one of their textured burlap pieces to make my tree truck, and another textured design for my beach. DCWV also has a wonderful selection of stencils, great for mixed media artists. They have supplied this unbelievable prize package for TWO random lucky winners! Package includes 1 12x12 paper pad, 4 textured 6x6 paper pads, and 12 stencils!
To enter the challenge, upload your project to this page by July 31! We can't wait to see all the fabulous entries and creative uses for things "around the house".
