Hello Crafters!

Here we are to a brand new challange over Simon Says Stamp!

 

This week’s theme over Simon Says Stamp Monday Challange is “Home Sweet Home” and I can’t wait to see what you create!
For this week’s theme , I altered another Pringles Plastic Cap — as I did in this other project — I love working on small surfaces!

I covered the pringles cap with tissue wrap paper and gel medium. I let it dry then I glued down some pieces of old book paper. To add some more texture I used drywall tape. I love the texture that adds!

When everything was dry, I covered it all with white gesso — and set aside to dry again.

I took a piece of mixed media paper by ranger and I used Distress crayons to add color. I scribbled random colors from the bright collection. I added crackle paste and let the crackle appear. When it was completely dry, I added again some more color to highlight the cracks.
I stamped with Tim Holtz Cling stamp and archival ink, but since i didnt want the stamp to “be in your face” i decided to go with a second generation stamp. I like the subtle addition of texture! I cut three houses from this paper.

I used again distress crayon to color the background and then I glued down the three houses. I used again gel medium to stick them down, I also added a piece of white thread just to create a base where the house could sit.

Tim Holtz stickers came to the rescue, and as always there is always the perfect one for every project!

I was able to finally buy an apartment, so the theme Home was close to my heart. It is a big step. I am proud of where I am.
I hope you are also proud of where you are, and if not yet, I hope you will find the strenght to reach your goals and aspirations. It takes time, even though noone likes to hear that , right? But keep your heads up, and when you feel lost – like I was – just look at the open sky, just look at the moon.

Find your peace and joy within.

    Quando ho letto su fb che questa splendida creatura prima della muta, era il coperchio delle delle Pringles, non ci credevo e son venuta a leggere tutto il post (bello soprattutto il finale). Sono felice che tu abbia trovato il tuo posticino e spero di vederti presto. Baci
