I and Love and You Vignette
An adorable heart plaque pairs with a sparkly picture frame in a perfect set.
Picture frame crafts for adults like this one are wonderful because they pair nicely with a complementary wall decoration! Make a beautiful heart plaque that reads "I and Love and You" and hang it above a photo of the kids or grandkids.
The text in the plaque matches the minty color of the frame for a nicely paired set of projects. Add a bit of glitter to the frame for extra magic! The heart looks beautiful with layers and gradients of red color.
This is a wonderful project to decorate the kitchen, living room, or office.
This project is part of our National Craft Month celebration! A new project is released each day in March. View the full collection:National Craft Month 2019

Protect your hands with latex gloves. Closely spray Strawberry TintIT on wood heart plaque to wet the surface. With paper towel immediately wipe the color into the wood grain. Deepen the color around the heart edges with additional coats of TintIT. With transparent color, each additional coat will deepen the color. 3 coats used here. Let each coat dry before applying the next.
Spray the letters for chosen quote with Mist übermatte. Apply 2 coats. When dry, glue to the heart plaque and hang.
Spray 2 coats of Mist übermatte on picture frame. Let dry between coats. Consider spraying back side first then repeat on the front.
Apply one more coat of Mist on the front side of frame. Immediately, while coating is still wet, sprinkle glitter over the surface. Let dry then insert image for display.
