You're My Home

"You're my Home"

Created in Irmo, SC

12" x 10"

 

I was inspired by the song "You're My Home" by Billy Joel. I was struggling trying to decide on a song to use, and my iPod was on shuffle, and whammo...Billy Joel came on and I was inspired! I love the lyrics and the overall idea that no matter what, where ever my love is, that is where my home is. I created this piece to hang in my office at work, it's a very rough depiction of our house here in Irmo. I originally intended to print one of my favorite pics of my hubby and kiddo on fabric and incorporate it into the house, but I was unable to locate any of my printing supplies for the fabric. So I ended up printing one picture about 2x3 and then trimming down to "fit" in the bottom window. And I decided to attach the picture with velcro, this way I can change out the picture from time to time! The "shrubs" are a scrap of ribbon from Tim Holtz idea-ology and the "tree" is by Prima (both from my scrapbooking stash).

 

I spent $0 to create this piece, all fabric was from my stash, a mix of Bella and Kona solids, the sky a leftover bit from Giddy by Sandy Gervais.
