EAD Monday: Love@Home

Happy Monday!  I hope you are hopping along with the EAD Designs Design Team this morning!  You should have arrived here from the EAD Designs Blog, if not - head back to check out this week's giveaway!  The new design team members are still getting settled in, so they won't be joining us for our weekly blog hop just yet.  Just in case you missed the announcement - please join me in welcoming our new and returning team members!

I created a fun Valentine's themed canvas for our kitchen using some of the Chevron Vinyl and 12x12 vinyl sheets from EAD Designs.  Don't forget that ALL of EAD's vinyl comes with the transfer tape, so you will have everything you need on hand.  
I have had this canvas in my stash for months, and I finally decided I should put it to good use.  I applied a quick quote of acrylic paint in pink.  Once that dried, I applied the chevron pattern to the bottom and the top of my canvas.  Because the chevron pattern is 12 x 12, I was able to wrap it around the edges - I think it gives it a more finished look.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the word art and applied it to the canvas.  This project took me all of 30 minutes total - you can't get much easier than that!

The next stop on today's hop is
