Here it is unfinished. (the bottom stand is removable).
I painted the whole thing Antique White traced out the love word on the floral paper and cut it out and Mod podged it to the word Love and traced out the heart and made that a nice deep burgandy and Mod podged that on also. Actually this time I collage podged. I am trying out a new product similar to Mod podge. It is thinner and does not show the brush marks as much as mod podge does and it is less smelly.
Once the collage podge dried I got an exacto knife and cut out all of the empty spaces in the letters and heart.
Last I sanded around everything with an emery board (my favorite sanding tool) and went over all of it with some wood stain to give it an antiqued look.
Here is the finished project! I think it turned out nice if I say so my self. I hope my brother likes what I did with it!
Here are some of his other designs he has come up with so far.
