Houses of Anything: GD FOR VLVS

First of all I want to say huge Thanks for this chance to be VLVS guest designer for August. I got a lot of fantastic stamps to use for my projects and as I have much more at home it was very easy to make a big project and to have any stamp you need to make it.
This altered 5 paged project was made as an "inspiration lifting" art piece. But then I lifted it from myself, so it's totally right. I made a similar project like 18 months ago for the recent, just out of the print, issue of Rubber Stamp Madness and I made 4   "Houses of Everything" for the big article using RSM house template. I think that we all have a lot of different houses in our life that we fill with things we love or 
dream of

For the original project I picked houses of Dream, Imagination, Adventure and Knowledge
This new project, made for VLVS Guest post was made in the similar way, but after all it's totally different. I made 4 different house shapes, free hand cut; I used only VLVS stamps, quite a lot of them; I made totally different house this time and I called them "Houses of Anything". I also picked 3 of 4 houses that are totally 
different from the original work: house of Memories, Hope, and Art and   added the Adventure.

All of the pages were made in a similar way: resist emboss technique with white and black embossing powders over clear embossing ink. More stamping was made with black permanent ink. Some of the shapes were stamped with image masks; some were stamped one over another to make these themed collages. All roofs were separately stamped and name of the house was added with letter stickers. Over some pages I added stamped and hand cut images for the 3d textured look. Each page was colored with inks or water colors and I added just a few chipboards and stickers to make it more interesting. And if anyone, who knows my work, wonders why this piece is so "flat" and not over embellished as my usual work, the answer is simple: I was asked to make a project with VLVS stamps. They should be a star of this piece and not lots 
of embellishments and my glue gun.
