Home Sweet Home09 August 2012 | By Beth in Altered Art
Hi, guys! Today I’ve got a canvas that features a few of my very favorite Basically Bare embellies. I love the heck out of doing canvases now, since they (like Basically Bare embellies and albums) can be endlessly customized to your liking. So let’s get on with the project, yes?
I started off with the sun and clouds from the Celestial Shapes set. I covered the sun with paper and painted the felt clouds with a metallic white paint. Then I added Glossy Accents to the sun…
…and stitched seed beads onto the clouds.
I covered a Happy Little House embellie with paper and inked its edges, then doodled on some windows and flowers.
I used some un-tinted Glass Beads medium for the smoke coming out of the chimney.
I painted the trunks of some Happy Little Trees embellies (and doodled my and my husband’s initials on the trunks in a fit of girly-ness), and colored the tree tops with metallic acrylic paint and Glimmer Mist for some color and sparkle.
The bushes at the bottom are made from a felt tree top shape from the Happy Little Trees set, cut into bits.
Thanks so much for stopping by! ‘Til next time…
