I just wanted to do something simple, not for a holiday but something I could leave up year round. I thought about adding more,maybe paper flowers, embellishments? but I just wanted it simple. Anyone could make this and change the colors to fit with any theme or room.

Project Cut Files

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

I then Welded the letters together in CCR. I have the cutfile for download. I used a 12x24 mat and rotated the letters so I could get bigger. the L is 11.5" I played with the letters a little rotating each one so they fit together.
Firdst I painted a 16x20" canvas with copper colored acrylic paint. I let that dry while I created the LOVE. ;)
I used faux leather contact paper. I took the backing off and placed it directly on my mat. I then cut using my Expression 2 Anniversary edition.
I used Provo Craft transfer tape and used my cricut spatula to take off the mat. Then centered it on my painting after it was dry. And don't tell me you can't paint, anyone can put one color paint on a canvas. Or just put right on the wall, or an unpainted canvas. No excuses for this one.
There will be a video and more on my blog www.MelodyLaneDesigns.com
