Home Is Where The Heart Is

Hi everyone today is an extra day. I thought I would share with you a sign I made for my front door. This is the first canvas board I've done with paint. All the apartment doors are the same so I wanted something a little bit different. I found a mat I liked and then went to work on my sign.

I decided to use some of the colors in the mat for my sign.

I started by painting my board with purple acrylic paint. When it was dry I added my saying using stickers and masked my heart.  I then painted with a teal metallic paint. After the paint was dry I removed the heart mask and laid down the heart negative and painted with Crimson Red  I also removed the stickers revealing the purple words.Then when the paint was dry crackle media was added. When the crackle dried a black Sharpie was used to outline the heart. The borders at the top and bottom were done with a stencil and foil adhesive. When the adhesive dry then foiled with decofoil. I decided I needed something so took deli paper and sprinkled red and yellow Brusho Colour Crystals and then misted with water. When the deli paper was dry I stamped my butterflies. Then used a black Glaze pen for the body. I used a stencil with a Craz-Art  glitter marker. I glued a magnet strip on the back to adhere my sign to the front door. There you have it my early Spring decor project.

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your extra day of the year. Do come back tomorrow as I have a special post about the monthly challenge that Just For Fun Stamps is starting.

Do you make your own home decor? I have plans to jazz up garbage cans and make some floor cloths for my apartment. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
