You can’t buy love

…but you can rescue it.

I’m all about keeping it real so I’m going to show you my failure. But first, I’m going to show you what I finally ended up with:

I ended up using some of the 12×12 chipboard from KNK USA and gluing some print paper I had and inked the edges. Then I cut the quote out in white vinyl and stuck it on.

Easy, Quick and fun.

Now for the failure:

I cut the image out and reverse weeded it and then stuck it on 8×8 canvas. I used acrylic paint and a foam brush and dabbed the paint on. when I peeled the vinyl off, I was left with this. I was ready to cry because it took me forever and what was in my mind was definitely not what I created.

I’m not sure what I did wrong, but I was very disappointed that it didn’t work.

Any suggestions, please let me know. I’ll have to go to my good friend Google and see what she says (yes. Google is a girl in my mind!)
