I have a fun little mixed media project for you today. I love the idea that family is what you make it. I am a strong believer in family doesn't have to be blood. Family is what you make it and this is my little homage to your found family.
Using Mixed Media Heavystock paper blend on several colors of Distress Ink (Wild Honey, Squeezed Lemonade, and Fossilized Amber). Add a bit of Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink and flick with water. Allow to air dry to get oxide effects. Once the paper is completely dry, stamp the Small Crackle Stamp using archival ink in Coffee.
Floral Medallion. Cut the paper and cover your chipboard house. Splatter on Black Soot Distress Paint and Tarnished Brass paint to add dimension to the background. Don't forget to paint the edges of your chipboard unless you like the look of raw chipboard.
Glue the family to the chipboard house and add charms. Add scribbles all over the front using gel pens.
Cut up a chip quote and paint the edges. Glue the quote to the backside of the house.
There is a predrilled hole in the top of this chipboard house. Thread wire through the hole and wrap around a key that had been distressed to appear aged.
I hope you enjoyed it!
