With the whole handmade Etsy craze though, I've been totally inspired to try to create more things for my home with the things I have here on hand in my scraproom. So many times I will see something on Etsy or in a cute little shop and think "Hmmmm, maybe I *could* make something like that."
Anyhow, I wanted to share something that I created for my HOF entry last year. The inspiration came from a t-shirt with a tree on it that I saw at the Fossil store. Instead of leaves, the tree had little buttons printed everywhere. I *knew* I had plenty of buttons, so I went home and made my own little button tree on canvas. It was super easy to do...I just used a sponge w/blue paint and a little water to paint the "sky" background, painted the tree trunk, added the buttons and used AC Thickers and rubons for "There's No Place Like Home". (except, yeah, I definitely forgot the apostrophe on the actual project...oops!)
So, try something different...you never know how it might turn out! This is actually hanging in the hallway between the boys' bedrooms and everyone who comes over comments on it and asks where I got it. Who knew??! If you've made something fun for your home recently, I would love to see it!
