Home Decor for Valentine's Day

Happy Tuesday!!

It's been a while since I've posted.  My life was turned upside down July 2018 when my husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer.  So, I took time off to take care of him and our family.  After almost 18 months of living with the diagnosis, the last scans he had showed no active cancer!  Yay!!  So with him feeling better and our family settling back down, I can get back to my love of crafting.  

My first project to share is a home decor project.  

For the base of the hanging, I used an old dresser drawer front I had.  I painted it with several layers of white acrylic paint.  

I created the design in Silhouette Studio using Miss Kate's Valentine Subway Art cut file and Miss Betsy Font.  The design was cut with Oracal 651.  When transferring the vinyl to the board, the transfer tape pulled up portions of the paint.  It was a wonderful accident.  It gave the piece a different distressed look.  

After I finished, I sent my daughter a picture to show it off...and she LOVED it so much, it's now hanging on her wall, and I'm off to make another one for myself.  :)
