Key to my Heart!

All you need for this super simple print is a frame, a piece of cotton material, some acrylic paint, a brush, and a printer! It only took me about 30 minutes from start to finish.

I gave the frame a good coat of brown paint and while I waited for it to dry I used word to print different clipart keys, our initials, and our wedding year.

I drew an outline of the heart the approximate size I needed for my frame and taped the keys, initials, and year inside the outline.

Since I used white fabric, I could easily see the black print through the material. I used brown acrylic paint and a small craft brush to paint the outline and fill in each shape.

Once everything was dry I just wrapped the fabric around the frame back and put the frame back together.

It fits just perfectly on a shelf in our kitchen where we keep our keys!
