This project is so incredibly simple to create and costs less than $15 to boot! With some scrapbook supplies laying around the house and a picture frame, you can create an eye catching piece of custom artwork that fits your family!
First things first- I checked to make sure my scrapbook paper was true to size and actually fit inside the frame. It did.
On to step two: Adding your saying. I knew exactly what I wanted it to say as I've loved this song for always...You choose your own saying, phrase, verse, scripture... whatever fits you best!
I penciled out how I wanted the verse/saying to be broken up and began putting the stickers on. I didn't want it straight, I purposed to put the stickers on at angles and such. I believe it adds character. I also chose to use all lowercase for everything but THEE, for which I chose all caps.
There was a nice piece of pink cardstock in our stash so I started with that. I knew my heart had to be "off kilter" like the placement of my stickers, so I quick drew it on with pencil.
I glued the paper pieces on the heart and then flipped it over (in order to see the heart-shaped cardstock) and neatly trimmed the pieces that overlapped the heart, using the cardstock as my guide.
After I finished it the heart I felt it looked too crisp and clean for my background, so I pulled out abrown ink stamp pad and a piece of sponge. Next, sponged the edges of the heart, then I took the sponge, lightly dabbed in the brown ink, and smudged it over the whole top of the heart. I love the "old well-loved quilt" look of this heart.
Lastly, I dug some mounting tape out of the kitchen junk drawer and stuck it to the back of the heart. Since the tape is foam, it gives the heart a "lift" off the page, which makes the heart stand out just a wee bit more and adds that little extra pizzaz to the project.
