{Home Sweet Home}

Hi friends, today I have a cute little piece of home decor to share with you!
 
I used the May scrapbook kit from the Paper Bakery, which included this sweet house cut file, and also used one of the new Paper Bakery stencils from the May mixed media kit along with Heidi Swapp's Gold Lame Colorshine mist. Here's an easy tutorial on how I used the stencil.
First, remember to cover your work surface with newspaper if you are using a mist or spray. Since I only wanted to use part of the stencil, I laid small scraps of paper over the part I didn’t want showing to get an idea of how it would look.
Next, I laid a few more pieces of newspaper over everything that I didn’t want any mist on, and sprayed until it was a nice shiny gold!
I let it dry for just a few minutes, then carefully removed the stencil, rinsed it with water, and patted the stencil dry with a paper towel so it would be ready the next time I wanted to use it.

And here’s a final look at my sunbeam made with the “Glass Shattered” stencil.

As always, thanks for stopping by today!
Mary Ann
