Big Love in Pink

 Hi! I'm so glad you stopped by! I've been busy in my studio! Thank you for all of your fabulous comments! Thank you even more for reading my blog and sharing it with your friends! It really means so much to me that you spend time with me in my studio. I love every time you leave your thoughts and comments! I had such a great time creating my "Happy Fall" piece and sharing with you and how to make it, I thought I would teach you how to make another piece. I made this today and absolutely love it! I hope you will try it at home and send me a picture of what you create! I look forward to hearing from you!!!!

I started with a 5x5 deep edge canvas. Really you could use any size that you have. I like a 5x5 because you can finish it quickly and it's a great size for a gift .

Then I used Mod Podge to cover the canvas with book paper.

I used painters tape to spell the word LOVE  on the canvas.

Then I chose one of my favorite colors in acrylic paint and painted over the tape.

Ta Da!!!! I pulled the tape of and used a stamp to ink the a little on the front and sides.

I painted stripes on the sides with a lighter pink and used ink and permanent marker to add details.

I chose a green ribbon to wrap all the way around and finished it up with a bow on top.

That's it! What do you think? I "Love" it! I hope you do! Let me know what you think! I'd love love love to hear from you! Have fun! Ruthie
