Word Challenge LOVE {Canvas}

This week's challenge at Frosted Designs is using the word Love.  I looked at some square canvases at Michaels and they were over $20 for a set of 4.

Then I remembered that I had these at home.  I paid $1 each for these for a daycare project and these were the left over canvases.

I used red acrylic paint on the canvases.  I painted two coats.

I found some paper that coordinated and cut them to fit the canvases.

I cut out letters from Wall Decor and More to fit inside the paper and cut them out in metallic black cardstock.

I placed the letters on the paper to see if I liked the look.

Then I dug out my alcohol inks and some paper flowers to create just the right color flower.

I ran my letters through my 5" Xyron.

I stuck the letters on the papers and added some paper flowers, ribbon and pearls.

I used my pink ATG gun to stick the papers to the canvases.

I used a few glue dots for reinforcement.

I inked the edges with a black stamp pad.

Here is the final project ready to be hung up!!

If you are in the mood for love, join us at Frosted just might win a prize!!
