My Ballard Designs Inspired Valentines Day Decoration


ballard monogrammed art

Do you have your Valentine's Day decorations out yet?  We do, and I can't quit dreaming up new decorations to make for the house and my shop.  I pulled out the page above from my Ballard Designs catalog before Christmas because I loved their monogram art.  Which got me thinking...I  can make my own version for much less.  My 12" square version costs a quarter of the price of theirs!  I have two different versions in my store right now-check them out!  One is square, the other rectangular.

I painted the stretched canvases cream, then charcoal gray.  When the background dried,
I painted the LOVE letters cream that I had sketched on with hand made stencils.  Then I
sanded it like crazy!

Keep checking my etsy store in the side bar.  I am constantly adding more goods!  Don't you love
the silver puffy necklace?  Easter Dresses and more spring wares coming soon too!

  3. I'm so glad you wrote about the puffy silver heart! That reminded me that I have one like it somewhere; haven't worn it in years. I'm going to go find it now and enjoy it all over again!
