Love is All You Need Art

I needed something Valentine-y to go above my mantel so I decided to break out of my crafting slump, get out my Silhouette machine and make some canvas art. 

I love how it turned out!

I started off with a canvas, some music themed scrapbook paper to match the song lyrics I chose to use, some red and black cardstock, Mod Podge, and a glue stick

I used the Mod Podge to adhere the paper to the canvas then I simply cut out the heart and the text with the Silhouette machine. I adhered the heart and text to the canvas with a glue stick. 

The font for "love" is one of my all time favorite fonts, Missed Your Exit

The font for "is all you need" is Lucida Calligraphy

I added some ribbon to the back of the canvas so it could hang above the mantel. 

Then I used my favorite trick to make it pop by framing the canvas art with my red frame. 

I love how it turned out! 

This post is part of a monthly Silhouette challenge created by Lauren at The Thinking Closet. Check out the links below for more projects by some talented crafty ladies using their Silhouette machines.

  1. This is super cute!!! I love how you put the frame around really does pop!

  2. Wow! This turned out great...and I love the idea of putting it inside a red frame. What a way to increase the impact of your lovely artwork. Job well done, Coley!

  3. I'm going to re-comment again because I don't think my first one went through!

    I also loved how your artwork turned out. The idea to display it inside the red frame is brilliant. I might have to "borrow" that idea in the future. You're a wiz at your Silhouette, and you are such a great resource for us Silhouette newbies.

    Thanks for sharing your project with us this month!
