Hello everyone! February is now upon us and Valentines Day is a little over a week away. But, that doesn’t mean that all of the Valentines Decor is complete. Hence this project.
But, before we get started, congratulations to Sarah C. on winning the Canvas Factory Raffle! We can’t wait to see what you have picked out!
I have been trying to find different projects for BlitzyBlingArt. And, I went to the 99 Cent Store and found these really pretty silk flowers. So, naturally I bought a few bunches and started my project.
The first thing I did was take all of the flowers off of their stems and cut them short so I could glue them. Next, I cut out a heart and drew it on the canvas.
Then I started gluing. First problem I ran into, I attempted to use Elmer’s glue. Obviously I realized that wasn’t going to work AFTER I attempted to glue the first flower on. Second problem, I wasn’t going to fill in the heart. But then I realized that that as I started to put flowers around the heart, you couldn’t see the shape of the heart.
I decided to use the pink flowers around the heart and the white inside the heart. That way the heart is a bit more obvious and you could see it.
And after lots of hot glue and a few flowers falling apart with cutting the stems off, the canvas was finished. And it looks amazing!
The heart still isn’t very heartish (if that is even a word), but it looks really cool! I love how it looks. The flowers look really nice and it looks full. I also like how it look next to my other Valentines Decor!
