Simple Valentine's Day Art for the Home

Artwork:


Happy Valentine's Day! I love Valentine's Day - all the pretty gifts in the stores, hearts everywhere and obviously the possibility I might get a Valentine's from a secret admirer! 


This week I have made some really simple Valentine's art for my home. First the cross stitch heart print.


I made this on a simple Word program using Helvica font in size 64. It took all of 2 minutes to make the heart print and then I just played around with the colours until I got a combination I loved.

I just printed it out on a colour printer and popped it into a frame I already had - apologies for the photo - (you can see my image in the reflection on the glass).


For the second one, you might remember last year I played around with freezer paper printing - see here..... anyway, ever since I made the cute little gold heart I had been debating what I should do with it. 

I simply popped it into a frame and it was done! 



I also realised I've done quite a few other Valentine's Day inspired posts - I think my favourite is the little heart brooch. It's just so so sweet.





Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day.
