Home by Jennie

Hello and welcome to a quick little project using one of my favourite Calico Craft Parts pieces - bespoke wood words! 

A friend is returning home after spending some time travelling and rather than send a welcome home card I thought I would make her a little hanging.

I have been marvelling at some of the broken bird egg shells in the garden (following hatching!) which are a most beautiful blue and wanted to try and create something similar. So not quite a duck egg blue base but soft enough to show through the white crackle. I have used DecoArt Weathered Wood for the crackle and applied it thickly in places to get a more open crackle.

I have used the Coventry Garden Font for this four letter word. There are a good selection of sizes so you can always find one to fit your project. I have kept it simple and just painted it white.

And then the simplest of flower embellishment - soft colours to match the background but with a little bit of blush pink to lift it all.

A quick and easy project but which I think will be appreciated for longer than a card.

As always thank you for joining me today and happy crafting!

  2. What a lovely gift to receive on returning home. I love your colour choices and the beautiful weathered background, which showcases the word so perfectly. x
