I spent a while wallowing in the Morris and re-discovered a quote from the great man - which really helped.
"Have nothing in your home that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful."
I spent a while musing on this useful/beautiful idea and came up with the idea of 'use beauty' as the wording I wanted in my house. Being a teacher of English I had to have some words in my house.
This was mixed with Gesso to give an uneven look which I spritzed and stamped over in distress ink to give a feel of the famous WM flourish feel. I added some doodles too. The centre of my house is the gorgeous blue and gold paper that inspired me first which I framed and distressed and edged with Maria's flowers, also distressed.
The roof is a mixture of what I consider to be both useful and beautiful - language, music, and nature.
So that is my Altered House - a place of usefulness and beauty.
