My Best Friend

Hello there,

I thought today I would share a little burlap canvas I decorated for Valentine's Day.  I decided to just dig through my papers and stash and here's what I came up with.  The first layer is stamped tissue paper with hearts, butterflies and words but I pretty much covered that up!  The next layer is just different papers and some other word sayings, tag, fussy cut flowers and clock.  I découpaged those on then added Distress paints in streaks with my fingers in broken china and picked raspberry. Then added the chit chat stickers and outlined with a black pitt pen.  Added ribbon that I colored with broken china stain, pink ribbon and corner pieces.  I love how it turned out! The finished size is 6x8.  So why not use what you already have and make something wonderful!
