I stamped the mat with my new french script stamp that I used my "hubby's" gift card from Hobby Lobby to purchase (thanks honey!). I painted the light wood frame with black chalkboard paint and then sanded it to distress it. I love how chalkboard paint looks!
Next I took a plain old canvas board, painted it with gesso, and pressed the pieces in to hold them instead of using glue. Worked like a charm! The heart is canvas, stitched around the edges. I used plain chipboard, unembellished for the bodies and these cute Tim Holtz hangers in place of faces (so cute!). Of course, the people couldn't be naked so I added some clothes....it was like paper dolls!
It's hanging next to my side of the bed...nice addition!
