A couple of weeks ago I got the chance to guest post over at Mod Podge Rocks. This was the post I did there. I’ve been pondering a lot on love this month and how it play into our lives and into the Christmas spirit. I can honestly say that I feel more love this year during this season than I have for the past few. It’s been refreshing taking the “stuff” out of Christmas and putting back the Love. I hope you enjoy this project!It's gold, feathery, and full of love. Basically you can't go wrong with this feathered heart canvas


There are so many things going on around Christmas time–the lights, the shopping, and the bustle of the season. But one thing I can’t shake is that we often need a reminder about why we’re doing all those fun things. This year I’m concentrating my efforts and energy on creating a feeling in my home based on the reason we celebrate Christmas. Christmas is all about love. About peace, hope, and joy. But mostly about love. Without getting too far into my reasoning behind choosing this word and feeling for my Christmas, I wanted to create a project that would incorporate my hope for this year so that I would have a constant reminder of the goal I’m working toward.

I’m Lisa Mabey from Mabey She Made It, a DIY, craft, and sewing blog, and today I’m sharing this “Love” canvas with you. Let’s get started!

So, so pretty, love how you created the texture on canvas with tape and spray paint. This seems to be quite easy, not time consuming and ends up a pretty project. When I first looked at it I thought you had cut a heart shape out of canvas, clever how you made the feathers fluff out. Great job and love this. Would be really pretty for an anniversary gift besides reason you made it and for Valentine also. I’m going to do this. Will pin so I don’t forget. Just installed (maybe) a new printer on new pc so not… Read more »
