Home Sweet Home

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you've had a good week and are ready for a fabulous weekend.

I'm looking forward to a spot of retail therapy tomorrow with my DH down at Cribbs Causeway and hopefully I will be treated to some scummy lunch somewhere :o)

Today I thought I would pop by with a mini MDF Pallet Art plaque I made earlier this week 
So here's what I did:

I started with the mini 8"x8" Pallet Art from Stamps Away and painted it using Americana Chalk Paint in Primitive and when that dried I added a coat of Crackle Medium and left that to dry then added a coat of Americana Chalk Paint in Lace. Before that coat dried I gently rubbed some away for a more distressed look.

Then I blended some Pumice Stone Distress Ink through a flourish stencil in each corner before adding some Sparkle Texture Paste through the Home Sweet Home stencil.

Finished with a little natural twine string ready to hang on the wall - or in my case ready to be packed away until my first Craft Fayre of the year in July.
