2012 'HOME'

For me/us as a family 2012 is going to be all about home. Making our forever house into our forever home, well starting to anyway...! It is also the year I going to try and use up as much of my crafting stash as possible, and there is a lot, like 6 large plastic boxes and one large suitcase of fabric, at least 30 balls of wool, 40 tubs of glitter, 6 take away tubs of embellishments for cards..... I could go on but I will spare you the rest!

So, the point of this post, to show you my first stash busting project of 2012, HOME canvases.

 I have had the 4 wee canvases since the summer and wanted to try some glue gun 'art' so, using my new tiny glue gun that Big E got me for my Christmas, I 'glued' the letters on the canvases, waited till they were dried then gave them each 2 coats of paint, simple!

My letters could be neater but I like them. At the moment they are propped on the fire place waiting to find a permanent home bit at least they are out of the craft room!!

Just had another idea for some chipboard letters that I have 4 packs of...... back soon!!
