Home is Where the Heart is…

Sometimes life gets in the way. You begin a project, with a clear idea of where it’s heading, and then life happens. You set it aside, forget all about it for awhile. Then, you pull it out again, sometimes a few months later, and you realize that you aren’t liking the way the project is heading. That happened to me last week. I had started a wooden house, intending to make it turquoise and brown. I had sprayed the wood turquoise, and when I stumbled on it again, I just did NOT like it. I knew it needed a makeover, and a new project came to life!

While the tray is WET, squirt yellow, magenta, and blue splash inks directly out of the bottle and onto the tray. Lift the tray and allow inks to run together. Pour out excess ink by turning the tray over. Allow to dry.

Decorate the tray with a simple washi tape banner and a heart doily that says “home.”
