Love in any language











I started the project with an 8x10 cavas. Several valentines pattern pieces of paper, acrylic craft paint(I used white you can use any color you like), foam brush and modge podge glue.



First, I painted the entire canvas. Then while it is drying I picked the Language of Love that I wanted to use. I typed them out on Word in different fonts.


The I cut them into stips. You can cut them anyway you like. As you can tell mine were not even. Then I put a coat of modge podge all over the dried canvas. then starting from the bottom I began to glue them a strip at a time. After they all were glued on to the canvas I put a coat of Modge Podge over the entire picture. There may be wrinkles from time to time, but to be honest I like it that way. I think the wrinkles make it look like fabric. This is an easy project. I first saw this project http://lindseycheney.blogspot.com/2009/09/family-rules-canvas.html. I made it and loved it so much I thought I would put a valentines spin on it. Hope you enjoy.
