In our home, we try to remember that appreciation and love must be a constant ! Today with so much stress on our time and energy, it’s so necessary to make our homes an environment of peace and acceptance. Moms are the heart of many homes : we multi-task between work, home, the family and this piece is dedicated to all moms who are just trying their best within whatever circumstances.
Details are important and die-cuts are part of the layers. The tiny house is from the 661603 Snow Globe Thinlits
A piece does not need to have complicated colour, texture or dimension to look pretty – just enough of each element.

Using the Blending Tools, cover the canvas with Distress Oxides overlapping and blending where the edges of the colours meet. Dry the surface with a heating tool. To get the Oxide effect, mist randomly and watch for the reaction of the pigments. You can gently daub the water off or dry with a heat tool.
To seal in the Oxides, with your fingers gently apply a thin layer of Distress Micro Glaze on to the surface and then lightly buff with a soft tissue. You will find some of the colour will come off on the tissue but the canvas will still remain vibrant.
Heat emboss the Frame for texture.
Assemble the piece by working first on the Frame as this is much easier. Layer other sticker chipboard embellishments together with the Sizzix die-cuts.
Glue this on to the canvas and continue layering if you need to.
This is a cute project for the home and can be a special gift for a mom friend. I hope you will be inspired to create something pretty, have a good week ahead !
