The Craft Barn's theme is 'Buildings' which we can interpret our own way. I dug out the one stamp of a house I have and because it also says welcome I came up with the idea of welcoming the New Year in with some resolutions for me at Home! I don't normally do resolutions because I'm rubbish at sticking to them, but thought if I made them part of an ongoing project I might stand more chance.
I kind of lost track of what I did to the page - I started with a layer of Gesso and added distress stains and then just spritzed, inked and used some background stamps til I was happy. I added the stamped houses, both directly to the page and on torn scraps which I inked. I used a couple of free Craft Stamper magazine stamps - I don't have chandeliers in my home but thought they added a bit of glamour - and I only look like this first thing in the morning ! I added a touch of sparkle round the edges and some shimmery stars just to give it that New Year celebration feel. I also used my 'new from santa' Dymo label machine - it's only one of the basic embossing ones but I love it and anything that stays still long enough gets stuck with a name tag!
As well as the Craft Barn I'm sharing this at -
