Love Wall Hanging with Katelyn Grosart

Hey there Southern Ridge Trading Company fans, Katelyn here. Valentine's Day is right around the corner, so today I've created a Love Wall Hanging perfect to add to your Valentine's Day decor. Read below and learn how I transformed my chipboard pieces to create my Love Wall Hanging.


To start, apply two coats of Cadimium Red Hue 1/4" around the top and sides of a 5" x 7" canvas. Once the canvas has dried, take your blending tool and Black Soot and ink the edges of the canvas. Set the canvas aside.


Next, you'll want to take out two Mini Connected Hearts from the package. Apply two coats of Candied Apple Distress Paint to each mini connected heart. Once the paint has dried, with your blending tool, ink the edges of the hearts using Black Soot Distress Ink. Set the hearts aside.


Take one Filigree Hearts out of the package. Apply two coats of Candied Apple Distress Paint to the heart. Once the paint has dried, with your blending tool, ink the edges of the heart using Black Soot Distress Ink. Set the heart aside.


Cut two small portions out of the Honeycomb Pattern. Apply two coats of Hickory Smoke Distress Paint to the honeycomb pieces. Once the paint has dried, apply a coat of Crackle Paint to each honeycomb piece. Set the pieces aside to dry.


Apply a layer of Emboss It Ink to both Wild Heart. With the emboss it ink on the wild heart, sprinkle Sweet Valentine Embossing Powder over top of both pieces. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with your heat tool. Set heart aside.


Die cut an arrow out of white cardstock. Once the arrow is cut out, apply a coat of Spun Sugar Distress Paint to it. After the paint has dried, with your blending tool, ink the edges of the arrow using Black Soot Distress Ink. Set the arrow aside.


The last piece of chipboard that needs to be covered is the Love Word. Apply two coats of Spun Sugar to the love word. Once the paint has dried, apply a layer of Emboss It ink to the love word. Sprinkle Fine Clear Gloss Embossing Powder to the love word. Tap off the excess powder and emboss it with your heat tool. To finish off the love word, with your blending tool, ink the edges of the love word using Black Soot Distress Ink. Set the word aside.


Next, you'll want to cut two pieces of patterned paper. One piece of patterned paper will measure 4 3/4" x 6 3/4". The second piece of patterned paper will measure 4 1/2" x 6 1/2". On the 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" paper, rip part of the top and bottom of the paper. To finish off the patterned papers, edge distress the edges and then ink them using Black Soot Distress Ink. You'll also want to pull one medium sized doily out.

Now it's time to assemble your wall hanging. Adhere the 4 3/4" x 6 3/4" patterned paper piece to the canvas. Once the patterned paper is adhered, adhere one of the honeycomb pieces to the top left portion of the patterned paper. Adhere the second piece of honeycomb to the bottom right portion of the patterned paper.


Next, adhere the other patterned paper piece over top of the first patterned paper piece, leaving a 1/4" border all the way around. Adhere the doily to the middle of the 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" piece of patterned paper.


Adhere the solid heart to the middle of the doily. Once the solid heart is adhered, foam square the swirly portion of the heart over top of the solid heart. 


Adhere the arrow to the middle of the solid heart. Once the arrow is adhered, foam square the filigree heart to the middle of the solid heart. The filigree heart will sit slightly on the arrow.


To finish off the center heart, adhere the love word to the middle of the filigree heart.


On the bottom right hand side of the wild heart, adhere two large pink flowers, six red roses, six pink roses and three cream roses as desired.


On the top left hand side of the wild heart, adhere three large pink flowers, six red roses, five pink roses and four cream roses as desired.


To finish off the wall hanging, add in some pyrite stones in amongst the flowers on both the bottom and top sides of the heart. Once the stones are adhered, add a ribbon loop at the top of the canvas so you can hang it wherever in your home.


Here are a few close ups of the finished wall hanging.








And here is the finished Love Wall Hanging.
