"Home Is Where The Heart Is!"

My home has always been wherever the love of my life is.
When my husband and I married in 1984, that is when my life truly began.
I used the following:
Foundations Décor Sweet Heart House  
Printer Copy of Picture and Text
Paints and Pastes and Mediums    

Foundations Decor Sweet Heart House  was the perfect blank canvas to celebrate our 33 years.

Instead of transferring one of our wedding photos I decided to just decoupage a printer copy of a picture. I also printed the text on the printer and then got to work.

Next I added some texture with paint and mediums through a stencil.

Back as well.

Also painted the heart.

I used the following as well as pastes.
The back of the house:
The front of the house:
I love the tones and the texture of this piece.
The bracket adds dimension.
Thank you for perusing my project
and thanks to our June Product Partner:
Ciao for now,

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
