A Sign of Love

Hello, My name is Karen and this is my first post for The Robin's Nest. I hope to share lots of inspiring projects with you over the coming months. My first project is a Valentine's Day Home Decor Sign. I embellished a pre-made sign with Robin's Nest Dew Drops & paper. My project features, Heart Dew Drops, Diamond Dew Drops, as well as, Round Dew Drops.
 
Valentine's Day Home Decor Project: Love Sign
 
A Closer Look:
Here are the supplies.
Robin's Nest Supplies: Valentine Hearts Cardstock, Round Dew Drops, Dew Dew Glue, Diamond Dew Drops, Rosy Flower Die Cuts, Hearts Dew Drops
Other Supplies: wooden or paper mache shape, red glitter, double sided tape, black acrylic paint, foam brush, photograph

Directions:
1. Use a foam brush to apply an even coat of black acrylic paint to the base shape & set aside to dry.
2. Cut a heart out of the Valentine Hearts cardstock.
3. Adhere a border of Round Dew Drops to the edge of the heart with Dew Dew Glue Spots.
4. Attach the heart to the sign using double sided tape.
5. Adhere a column of five Diamond Dew Drops vertically down the center of the letters "L" & "E"
6. Adhere a Heart Dew Drop at the top and bottom of the columns of Diamond Dew Drops.
7. While holding a paper flower in the palm of your hand, use the end of a pen to gently depress the center of the flower so that the petals fold inward and the flower becomes more dimensional. Use the side of the pen and gently roll the petals to curve them to create a more natural appearance. Repeat the process with a second smaller paper flower. Adhere the two flowers together, attach a Dew Drop to the center of the flower, and attach it to the base shape.
8. Attach a photo to the back side of the base shape with double sided tape.
