From a Canvas to a Sign

Another pre-surgery project
 Valentine's Day marked my 13th wedding anniversary
 and I wanted to make something special for The Hubby.
 I had been saving this canvas and frame for a special project,
what's more special than an anniversary gift?
 I found this saying and knew exactly what I wanted to create
So I started by spray painting the canvas black,
printing out the saying and then using white carbon paper
 to copy it onto the canvas


I then used a white Painters Pen to color everything in.
 Placed it in the frame and hung it in our entryway.

Wow! Thank you so much for sharing this, I absolutely love it! It has been officially added to my "Wish List" for when I can spend money again :) I am currently on a month of spending $0 on my craft/decor and am finishing it off with a party inviting others to share their ideas that they used only what they had on hand. Please feel free to stop by and share anything you have. The $0 budget party is on Friday, April 1st.
