Home sweet home....

I've had this design in my head for a little while. I just love the little house stamps from Paper Artsy. And I also wanted to make houses out of the memory frames and corners. The other larger house is actually made from them wedges that come with a canvas. You know the little bag of wedges that's always stapled to the back?! That's with A5 or larger canvases. I was about to throw them out and thought, hang on, 2 put together make a little house. So there you go. It's covered in book page and painted and stamped on.
The HOME letters are grungeboard painted with crackle paint and then spritzed with the chalkboard glimmer mist, I love the finish of that stuff, gives an actual coverage of the colour whilst still being glimmery. Gonna have to buy more of that, although at £6 a bottle is quite dear.
This is being entered into the Alter it monthly challenge. Check it out here.
