A Heart Valentine's Decoration

'Bout time I did some more crafting, I think!  And this is what I did tonight, a decoration for our mantlepiece using a (charity shop) thick acrylic frame.

I stamped my heart and message 'Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much' onto a piece of graph paper and then simply stuck it onto the inside of the frame with some lovely heart washi tape (Paperchase £2.50).   I then added the washi tape all around the edges of the frame.

I was going to leave it like that but thought it looked a little unfinished, and needed a bit more dimension.

Which is why I added a few handwritten hearts and the square on the front.  Plus the X's:
And am now liking the layered frames look.

An updated selection of books are available on my other page now.
Thanks for looking and for any comments,

Love those chunky acrylic frames and washi tape. This is really effective. x
