Check out this super cute Valentine's Day art I made for my entryway - I just love it! It's one of those projects that looks even better in real life than in pictures - I wish you could come on over and see how cute it is!
And then you would see that I still have all of my Christmas Cards on display.... I just love seeing them and can't bring myself to take them down yet!
I have the tutorial for the ombre heart art on down.... but also, one of the things I want to do a little more of this year is video. dun dun dun.
So... look - - a Valentine's Craft, with a video! It was made via Hangout On Air - which means it was one-take, live, no editing. Enjoy 6 minutes of me rambling to myself about crafting this cute Ombre Heart Art:
This all started with some amazing paper sent to me from American Crafts - the texture is great, and the glitter sheets were awesome - I wanted to showcase the paper, and this specimen art was a perfect project.
First I grabbed a plain frame and gave it a quick coat of paint...
I then cut a piece of the corrugated white glitter paper, and placed that in the frame (with the plexiglass removed). And here's where I stopped taking step-by-step pictures - blogger fail!
BUT, I can walk you through it. I punched the hearts out of the paper using a punch, but you could hand-cut them if you want. I used 4 different shades of pink/red, lightest ones on top and the darkest on bottom.
After punching them out, I folded each heart in half to give them dimension. Then I used hot glue generously along the fold and placed it onto the white paper. Just glue down each heart and that's it! See how they stick out - love that:
A fun and simple Valentine craft - just the kind I love!!
