I'm working on permanent wall art to hang in my living room but for now I like how this looks - I did it for Valentine's Day but will leave it up until I finish the frames for my other artwork.

Tutorial and more photos here. http://secretpieshoppe.blogspot.com/2010/02/craft-valentines-day-wall-art.html



Ignore the ugly/non-matching cushions in these two photos. I'm working on making new cushion covers but it is a sloooow process. :-(




The hearts are standing 3/4'' off of the wall - it looks much better in person than in photos. Here is a shot that shows the "3D action"

that's really cool!! I love the rest of your living room too; you should post pics when you get the cushion covers done and everything!! Cheesy

Thanks! Our living room is my favourite room in our house - except for the ugly cushions. I've done a lot in that room - we painted the walls (they had been bright yellow), I painted the furniture (it had been dark wood) and I've made other art for the room. It will look great once I can finish the cushion covers. :-)

I <3 it! (pun definitely intended)  Cheesy

I think you should keep it up all the time too. It's a lovely work of art.
