Art-C Project for Valentine's Day

Art-C provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

Art-C products came to the rescue on this wintry day in need of brightening. On the heels of Valentine's Day it seemed appropriate to focus on LOVE when creating a new piece.

With supplies gathered, I was ready to begin. Using my fingers I applied Ultra Chalk Paint in white to a 3" x 5" Wood Pallet. I followed this with an application of pink and citron paints through an Art-C stencil.

To distress the edges of the pallet I applied Gel Stain in chestnut and I added Metallic Paint in gold to the edges of a tag.

A sentiment was added to the tag by using the "love" stencil and metallic gold paint.

A fabric strip and ribbon were wrapped around the pallet.

Elements from Art-C collage kits, accented with gold metallic paint, completed the piece.

"Remember this...love FOREVER."
