Hi, everyone! Happy Labor Day! I started laboring away on a beautiful, easy project last night. It's a piece of art on canvas. Let me tell you how I made it. :)
I used my Silhouette machine to cut the word LOVE from a piece of pretty black scrapbook paper. I also took a canvas out of my canvas stash to put the letters on.
I painted my canvas hot pink. (If you want to get technical, the color is strawberry.)
Now, the reason I started this project is because I recently bought some of the new Martha Stewart paints from Michaels. I just had to try out the beautiful pearly colors. So I chose the Pink Taffeta Pearl paint to stencil a design onto my canvas.
I don't like my projects to look too "new." I love for them to have an aged look. So when I finished with the stenciling. I rubbed my black ink pad over the edges and some of the surface of my canvas.
Then I took out my Mod Podge and glued the letters to the canvas.
I intentionally left space at the bottom of the canvas to add some type of embellishments. I decided on ribbon flowers with button centers. I am kind of obsessed with them right now.
I used my glue gun to attach the flowers to the canvas.
I put rhinestones in the centers of the two outside ribbon flowers' buttons because they had a space in the middle that was screaming, "Add some bling!" Then I was finished!
I love the pearl effect of the stenciled design, and I love the pink! And I really love that it was inexpensive and pretty easy! This would be so cute in a little girl's room or as a Valentine's gift.
