About this project, Candi writes:
"I wanted to create a little wall decor using a photo of me and my big sis. I picked up this heart-shaped chip decor at Hobby Lobby thought it perfect for the season. I thought to add this rare photo of us together and happy (ha!) as we were never the closest back then. Today, we are the best of friends and I don't know what I would do without her by my side. This wall mount project of her and I is a great way to show I love her."
Candi's steps to this project:
- Squeeze out some Quick Dry Tacky Adhesive onto the heart and spread it around to the edges with a small foam brush.
- Lay the back side of your patterned paper (12x12) down on to the glue and press down all over. Set aside and let it dry for several minutes.
- Lay the heart face down and with one hand hold the heart in place. The second hand will life the excess paper against the heart and tear the paper. There will be rough/torn edges. It won't look perfect.
- Take your piece of sandpaper and finish the edges by rubbing the sandpaper on the edges around the perimeter of the heart. The 'extra' paper will fall off and your heart will now have a rough, yet clean look.
- Take a small foam brush and paint around the edges with red acrylic paint. Set aside and let it dry for several minutes.
- Take any size heart punch and punch out several hearts and adhere them to the left side of the heart. Cut out a heart-shaped photo and adhere that to the heart.
- Finish the project off with some stickers and embellishments.
