Home is where the heart is!!!

As promised yesterday, I said I would share the other side of HOME TWEET from Foundations Décor products. 
 
I have added a clothespin to this side of the house to make it a bit more functional.
 
Supplies:
Foundations Décor Sweet Heart House
Dixie Belle Paint Butter Creamy
Dixie Belle Van Dyke Glaze
Sunshine in my Soul 8x8  Paper Pad
Adhesive - Glue
Charms and Dog from old Monopoly game
Flowers
Metallic Luster Wax
Clothes Pin
Chipboard
Image of door

 

I love working on both sides of my Foundations Décor products.  My project today is the backside of my HOME TWEET HOME (above) that was shared on the Altered Pages blog yesterday.  You can see how I painted the house and created it HERE on the blog!


 
First, all sides of the Foundations Décor Sweet Heart House were painted with Dixie Belle Paint Butter Creamy! Let it dry, then trace the house onto the Sunshine in my Soul 8x8  Paper Pad. Apply a thin layer of glue to the house, then carefully attach the paper.  Let dry!   
 
 
Before attaching the roof to the front side I traced it onto chipboard, I wanted the house to have the same roof line on the back side. I painted the chipboard and a clothespin with Dixie Belle Paint Butter Creamy after they dried I paint then with Dixie Belle Van Dyke Glaze  removing the excess to get a distressed look.
 


The heart was painted  with Dixie Belle Paint Butter Creamy then distressed with  Metallic Luster Wax
 
I found an image of a door in my photos that was perfect for the house.  If you have been to Fort Worden you may recognize it.  The image was printed on copy paper and cut out.

Adhere the door, heart, roof, charm, flower and clothes pin with glue.
Add the final touches: the little key and dog a from an old Monopoly game!


 
I sure hope you have enjoyed the month with us!
 
 
Look for more projects using Foundations Décor products later this summer when we will be sharing some fun Fall projects.
