Valentine's Canvas Art {Tutorial}

I have a special request from you my lovely readers.

If you haven't already Pretty PLEASE "LIKE" me on Facebook!  -------------------->
The button is to your right on the top.
I recently started a new fan page for Pocket Full of Pink and well to be honest, I want more. I am not satisfied with 66 likes. Will ya humor me and click on that "like" button?  It will make my flippin' day!  Thank you:)

Now, onto a cute, and easy Valentine Craft!

 This was so EASY my friends.  The longest part was gluing on the bazillion buttons!


Supplies you will need:

- blank canvas (mine was an 8 x 8)

-{1} 12 x 12 piece of Scrapbook paper

-Mod Podge

-Some kind of hard flat tool to get the air bubbles out of the paper (I use my Pampered Chef scraper}

-vinyl {or you could cut out letters using a stencil}

-Cricut or Sillouette

-Buttons

Directions:
1.)  First I brushed Mod Podge over the back side of the scrapbook paper.
2.) While it was drying, I used my scraper to smooth out the paper and get the air bubbles out.  Note: From my tutorial pictures it looks like the air bubbles are still there, but I swear on a stack of brownies that EVERY air bubble came out!  Don't ask me how, they just did!

3 and 4.) I added the vinyl lettering after the Mod Podge was completely dry.  I had some leftover vinyl from last year that I didn't use.

Lastly, I added all those pretty buttons!  Yes, it took a while, but I think it looks pretty darn good:)

 See....No air bubbles. It was the weirdest thing.  They just disappeared!

Be sure and stop by tomorrow for the Friday Frolic top 5 viewed links from last weeks party!
