Hi everyone!! Happy Sunday!!
As promised, I am back today with another Valentine's Day home decor project, inspired by Pinterest! Now, this was SUPER DUPER easy to make, and I LOVE how it looks in my living room (right next to the floral piece I shared with you yesterday!).
I was SUPER inspired by THIS POST, which I pinned from Pinterest ages ago. I knew I could re-create the same look, for pennies compared to the price tag on the original.
I picked up some 6X6 canvas from a big box craft store, and using the By The Letters Die-Namics, I cut out the letters for the words I wanted to use...live laugh and love. I cut the letters from Sweet Tooth Cardstock, and I cut three of each letter (thank you to my dear friend Karen Giron who clarified that yes, I did in fact cut a g and not a q...lol).
I glued three of each letter together so that they would have a bit of height when sandwiched together. I then glued them onto my canvas using Tombow Multi Glue (which is what I use for everything...card layers, gluing flower layers together, etc.).
Once I had the letters glued down, I painted the entire canvas with two coats of white acrylic paint. Once the weather turns and we don't have a foot of snow outside (grin), I will spray this with an matte acrylic sealer to protect it. Here is a closeup of the words.
And here is a side view so you can see the dimension you achieve when using layers of letters. Note: You could, of course, cut your letters from chipboard, but I didn't have any handy (ie: I have no idea where my stash of chipboard is), so layering the cardstock layers worked for me.
