{Heart} Dance!

Are you ready for a challenge?  A Silhouette Challenge that is!  That's right, it's 2015 and it's back. Another year of creative challenges that my blogging buddies and I are excited to share with you.   This month's challenge -- Print and Cut with a bonus challenge to include Hearts.  Yes and Yes!

27 bloggers have joined this month's challenge.  That's 27 ideas and inspiration just for YOU!  You can find a clickable link to the other projects below, but first let me share with you my darlin' little dancer.

When I saw what this month's challenge was, I knew I wanted to participate.  You see, I purchased from the Silhouette store this adorable little dancer file over the Christmas holiday when files were on sale and I couldn't wait to use her.

A trip to my favorite craft store and I found a wood canvas.  The perfect piece for this project.

Now it was time to work on the print and cut portion of the project.  Even though this isn't necessarily a Valentine craft, I was inspired by the season of love so I decided to make my "print" a song.  I chose Save the Last Dance for Me by The Drifters (what?!?  I have an old soul!)

Let's get cutting now!  Since 'hearts' were the bonus challenge this month, it goes without saying that my song would be cut into a heart.  Pretty, right?

I decided a solid red heart would make a great backing for my print and cut heart.  I made it slightly larger than the first.

My little ballerina.  There is something just so sweet about her.  Print and cut time.

I used white acrylic paint on the canvas, then used Mod Podge to adhere the pieces to the board and used it as a seal on top.  Patience has never been my best virtue but I left it alone for over an hour while it dried.

I used adhesive squares to adhere the printed heart.

Added the word 'dance' using vinyl and VOILA, Dance Love!  Cute as a button and I couldn't love it more!

This came out great! I really love the heart offset and how you filled the smaller heart with text. Also, I've never heard of wood canvas - I'm going to have to check that out!

Angela @Little Blue's Room said...

Thanks Kristy!! I love it, it turned out so cute. Yes, I found the wood canvas at Hobby Lobby. When I saw it I knew it was meant for this project...LOL!

Kelly of Simply Kelly Designs said...

I love this design. The ballerina is beautiful and I love how you popped up the heart with the song lyrics. I think I might have to check out the wood canvas. Does it come in different colors? What section did you find it in at Hobby Lobby? I get lost in that store it is so big! Thanks for sharing!

Angela @Little Blue's Room said...

Hi Kelly! I found it in the unfinished wood section. I was looking for just a plain board and was surprised when I found it. The great part - you can paint it any color you want so the ideas are endless. :-)

Pam - GetSilvered. said...

Love everything you've used Angela. The finished sign is just lovely.

Amber said...

This is a lovely project! Would make a great customized gift. Thanks for sharing.

Camila said...

This so pretty! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the ballerina! You did such a lovely work!

Angela @Little Blue's Room said...

Thanks Pam! Yes Amber, customization would work really well with this too especially if it were added to the words in the heart. Camila, I did too! When I saw her there was just something about it that jumped out at me...and I'm not even a dancer - LOL! Thanks ladies for stopping by and sending some love my way! :-)

It's great said...

This is really a wonderful post.
