Next, I took out the frame's backing and covered that with some white basket weaved type fabric that I also had lying around. This gave me a nice textured surface to work upon.
While the mat dried, I took out my handy dandy Silhouette machine and cut out my phrase and my LOVE cutouts. I used some scrap cardstock that matched the matting and frame colors. I glued my phrase cutout onto a scrapbook mat page and I set all of this over another piece of scrap cardstock. This gave me a little bit of brown bordering around the whole center part. It looked rather plain at this stage so I went back to my Silhouette and cut out some curly Qs - at least that's what I know them as. These I stuck at the corners. Last and finally, I glued all of these cutouts onto the fabric matting and Ta da - Valentine art!
I love this sooo much! Such great use of would be garbage! I'm a legend in my own mind!
