Home is Where You Are

Hi all!! Finally settling back down around here after a busy weekend, of cookouts and sleepovers. It flew by, but we all had a blast!

Today I have a project to share with you. I ordered this collage 12x12 photo from Persnickety Prints. Originally the plan was just to put it in the altered frame, but when it came, one of the photos in the collage was not blending well at all with the others. Most of these were Instagram photos, and I must have used a different filter on that one, cause it stuck out like an eye sore. So I decided to alter the print a little and see if I could make it work.

I layered up some different pattern papers from Glitz and Studio Calico, along with tags and washi. The "love lives here" die cut is from Studio Calico, I simply used my Cameo and die cut it from vellum and then layered it over some wood grain paper from Basic Grey. Adding in some other stickers, stick pins, veneer, and buttons and brads, I think finished it off nicely. The frame was a plain wood frame I picked up at my LSS. I simply cut this Amy Tangerine paper to fit the frame, adhered it, then used gesso over the top to give it a white washed look.
This will go great in my scrap room, which is finally coming together. My hubby built me an AMAZING desk this weekend! Will share pics soon! :)
Hope you all have a fabulous week, and take time to create something you love! :)

I like it and your creativity. I also look forward to pics of your desk! I've been trying to decide what to buy or have the guy build for me...
