Mixed Media Tiled House

I created this house over a week ago and have only just remembered to blog about it now! It started out as a wooden shape that I bought with the intention of altering.

Initially I glued little mosaic tiles all over it but when the glue was dry I decided I didn’t like how it looked. So I painted over the top of it with black gesso and then heated the gesso to make it bubble up and create a texture.
