Home Canvas

 July - Home sweet Home

Where did July go ???? I have only just made the deadline with a few days to spare for this months Alter It Monthly challenge.  This had me scratching my head and my mojo just didn't flow until tonight when I found hidden in my stash this mini canvas and easil which I have had for ages and ages.

For my "Home is where the HeART is" canvas I used  DI scattered straw shabby shutters and barn door I inked all over the canvas and then lightly went over it with tea dye to dirty it up a bit as it was a bit bright which is an understatement; actually it shouted at you  too bright lol; I used the same colours onto a craft mat and spritzed then swooshed card over and let this dry, then I used 3 sets of mini alphabets to stamp out the small words.  The heart and HOME word are grungboard which I inked in barn door shabby shutters ,tea dye and broken china, stamped over with a florish stamp from Tim Holtz visual artistry collection as was the corner stamp which I embossed in TH Distress Powder faded jeans. Black soot was used to edge all the tiny words and the heart

Other items  used Stampin' Up! stamps for the little house and papermania adhesive stones

Thanks for looking

Bye for now
