"Home is where the Art is" for The Craft Barn

Good morning folks.
Another project for you that was over on The Craft Barn Blog a while ago that I hadn't shared here. This was one project that I really enjoyed doing.
As always, if you follow the link HERE it will take you to the original post where you can see more details on how I made it as well as a downloadable/printable PDF.

This week I was working with paper mache letters to spell home but I wanted to make something that was not just a decorative piece.........

 I was so happy with the way this turned out. It is mounted onto driftwood and there are slots to hold pens and brushes.
 I used Lindsay Mason owl images and doodled the details and generally just had fun.
There is a bit of a tale with this paintbrush angel...... When I was re decorating the lounge this was the brush I used to paint a radiator cover. By the end of that the brush was pretty much useless for any other purpose as you can imagine. But rather than toss it I left it to dry without washing it. I added a face with clay, a bandanna and rusty washer. I then used the Tim Holtz Layered Tattered wings at the back to create my funky creative angel who guards my brushes......

Again, for more details and how I made it pics, do pop follow the link.......
