House No. 101: Silver House

House No. 101: Silver House
watercolor on repurposed paper, card stock, and foiled paper
8.25 in. x 5.85 in.
101/365; 04/11/11

I dove back into my magpie collection and fished out most of the silver foiled paper to make today's house. It took forever to dry because the foiled paper is largely not porous and did not let air get to the adhesive.

I like the contrast of the painted matte paper against the shiny silver and the movement created by all the scraps and angles of cut paper. This house felt like play.
