"home"

I used dark denim for the base, and burlap for the background.  The roof is a scrap of houndstooth fabric, the door is red felt, and the house white cotton.  The windows were cut from decorative paper, to which I added light blue paint and drew the panes with a silver permanent marker.  The grass was cut from a gelli print (on cardstock), with added miniature dried flowers.  The metal heart in the center of the home is a Mexican milagro.  I completed my scene with a white cotton banner on which I stamped the word "home", flanked by two silver bird sequins.  For added contrast I used turquoise embroidery floss to stitch around the burlap; for the denim and house I used a silvery-gray thread.
