Today, I'm sharing the second home decor piece I created for the current Issue: Hooray for Red, White and Blue! One of the suggested projects is use of nautical elements. I absolutely LOVE October Afternoon's new Treasure Map line and, as it so happens, the colors are a great match for the living room we are currently decorating. I've been looking around Etsy and Insta sales for a "Love You More" sign but these papers inspired me to go ahead and create my own. I'm thrilled with how this project came together and cannot wait to see it displayed in our home!
I started this project with white cardstock and cut words with my Silhouette using the Bebas Neue font, leaving room for my foiled word in the center. Then, using two printed papers, I cut the words a second time and pieced the patterned letters into the negative spaces of my white piece. Super simple with this block font. I mounted the die cut design on two thicknesses of white craft foam to create the dimension.
I cut the Lawn Fawn script love metal die from iCraft Double Sided Adhesive Foam and used gold Deco Foil on the front. The hardest part of this project was getting the super sticky foam piece off my fingers and on the proper spot! I layered everything onto another framed piece of the OA Treasure Map collection, Siren's Point (it matches our living room carpet!) and called this done.
