focusing on home...

this seemed to fit today's blog post...

it's a little art, again made for CHA...

the beautiful colors are mowed lawn, salty ocean & rusty hinge distress stains...
I am liking the new green/blue combo lots...

both backgrounds are stamped with jet black archival...

this new background is on the mowed lawn...
I *think* it may be my new favorite...

and this one is on the salty ocean...

the art parts "HOME" & the tied bow are brand new...
I like to add an eyelet in the ends of the bow...
a Crop-A-Dile cuts thru art parts very easily...
that tiny detail makes a difference...

the fork is one of my Blossom Bucket embellishments...

the primitive house will be available NEXT Month...
I added a tiny bit of coffee archival to make it more vintage...

archivals are AWESOME...
just sayin...


I wanted to highlight the chandelier, so I used 
after I stamped it with jet black archival...



the art parts bases are from the large square frame set...
I'll use the open frame on something else...

the smaller square is edged with the
brushed pewter distress stain, to tie it in with the pewter fork...
***a little tip***
I like the dabber top fairly dry for edging...
I usually swipe the excess stain on a paper towel...

next up is another little art, using tim's blueprint stamp...

I'm totally hooked on embossing...
I use it now on at least 75% of my projects...

it makes coloring in the design super simple...
 it also adds a tiny detail & another layer for more interest...

the phone needed something to ground it...
so it wasn't hanging in mid air...
 I used the same background stamp as above...
just a different portion of it...

this phone stamp can be used with lots of different sentiments/sayings...
for lots of occasions...

the alpha tiles were a perfect fit for my message...

Love the two makes but I think I've been missing that bow... Know that one of those will be in my house soon! Love the telephone too - have loads of sayings I could use with it - the current one in our house is "how long are you going to talk to her? You've just spent all day with her at school"! It makes me sound like my mum but I just can't help myself!!!

Love the two pieces. Your new favorite color combo has always been one of mine. Love just about any combo of blues and greens; so lively looking!
I hope your reno goes smoothly and you're back in your studio as soon as possible. I know it's a drag, but so worth it when it's over.
