Altered Houses Canvas

I made my first little altered house as part of Rinda's blog hop.........and then added 2 more to complete my 'set'.......a house, a garden shed and a summerhouse......I wanted them to be a piece for the wall so have finally made them into a canvas wall hanging.
The canvas was coloured with Distress Inks......flowers, birds and washing [there's always plenty of that hanging in my garden!] were added in a variety of colours.  
And now I think it's ready for the wall.I also think it fits with the new Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog's first challenge 'things with wings'.
