Hello , its Karen here with my first piece for 2010!  I hope that you are all keeping warm & safe!

I have been playing with these  Home Sweet Home pieces...

They are a lovely size to work with and I have recycled a canvas I got in the sales for this (the pic was gross hehe) and used it back to front!  I used a pack of Basic Grey Sugared for this project.

After I had covered the words & house with paper I didn't like it so I then went over it with chalk ink to make it darker!  The swirls on the background have been slightly glittered by puting stickles on my finger & gently dabbing.  I did the same with the flowers.  Before I covered the house I traced the heart shape which I cut out & set on foam pads.  The roof is DONE using the wiggly card stickers that came with the pack.  I stuck plainer paper round the 'frame' and then dabbed at it with a white chalk ink.  I left the inside of the frame plain as I thought the pine went well.

Hope you like this as these pieces make a lovely gift when made up!  HUGS XXX

I love this! A clever idea to use the letters separately from the house too.

That is really beautiful Karen I like the idea of applying stickles with your finger for a glitery effect. Love the shape of the hearts too.
