Hello, I'm back with m weekly Wednesday post for Frilly and Funkie, a little late today because I had the Artistic Outpost blog hop post earlier today. Rebecca is our hostess this fortnight and her challenge to us is to make a home decor piece for Thanksgiving or if you don't celebrate Thanksgiving, then based on gratitude. I had a really tough time getting started on this piece. My mojo seems pretty flat lately, but once it got flowing, I had a ball making this piece. It's a little wall hanging made with two tags. I turned them into little houses by giving them a roof line with cardboard. I started with two jumbo manila tags, initially spraying Walnut Stain distress stain spray over the Tim Holtz woodgrain stencil. Then I flipped the stencil over and laid another tag on top, burnishing it to absorb what was left of the stain. I liked that better than the first one so I took another fresh tag and did the same thing again. That one came out lighter, but I liked it and decide to use it anyway.
I created worn enameled plaques for the gratitude words using the Tim Holtz ____ texture fade. I cut them apart and embossed with Wendy Vecchi Orange Blossom embossing powder, knocking some of it off to give a worn appearance. LOVE the way they look!
gratitude for our blessings is the key to a happy home.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you will stop by Frilly and Funkie too. The Frilly team has put together some show-stopping home decor pieces for the autumn season!
