Heart Canvas

I saw a post from Southern Lovely a while back that spark some interest in my lull in crafting.  I made something very similar to hers.  I believe she used burlap behind her buttons instead of paint.  

 I bought 14 x 14 canvas and evenly spaced out ~ 2 inch strips of contact paper and applied black paint in between each strip.  Once that dried I laid a heart stencil out of contact paper on the center of the canvas.  I applied 3 or 4 coats of red paint and let it dry.

Me   You Canvas

I made another stencil using "Set Fire to Rain" font for the Me + You section.

 And the most meticulous part of this project was gluing the buttons on one by one.  I bought a couple of packages of red buttons from Michaels for this project.
