Can't Resist Making Houses

Jamie Fingal checking in with "Can't Resist Making Houses" on tags.  I started these while flying on an airplane, and they were fun to just draw with a pencil.  Some were painted with watercolors and some were colored in with Crayola felt tip markers.  The beauty of this project, is that it is portable.   Anywhere, anytime, draw, paint, coloring and outlines!  Tags are 2-1/2" wide by 4-3/4" high and you can buy them at your local office supply store.

I love the delicacy of this one painted with watercolors and the black outline with a Pilot Razor Point Pen

Bright vibrant colors with Crayola felt tip markers and a black Flair pen for the outline.
A mix of watercolors and Crayola felt tip markers and a black Flair pen.  These could be make into gift tags or framed together for the wall.  You could even make an accordion book with them.  The possibilities are endless.  Make Time for Art!


  1. Love all the different textures! (colors too of course) I don't think in patterns and designs like that but I love the theme! thanks.

  2. Love these!!! Thanks, Jamie. What a fun ongoing project. I may just try that today.

  3. These are adorable! Thanks for sharing the beauty of simplicity - I often make "art" too difficult!

  4. These little houses are such fun! Love the patterns.

  5. What a fun idea! I love these. I really liked the idea of putting them together in a little book, small and intimate, the just right size!
    Thank you.

  6. so colorful! And I love the grass! {:-D
