Striped Heart Picture

Just wanted to share a fun project I did not that long ago for Valentine's Day.

{I'm sure you've seen a few of these around Pinterest and blogland, but this is just my version}

I love the stripes especially since they look so cool but were so easy to make!

I just painted a square board the gray color, then put some masking tape on and painted over that with turquoise paint.  Then even before the paint was all of the way dry, I took off the tape.

And there they were, the coolest stripes ever!

Then I stenciled a heart on the middle with red paint and eventually glued some red buttons on it.

To finish everything off I distressed the picture a bit to make it look vintage. 

Here it is.

(I apologize, the pics aren't the best, but you can see it.  My house is so dark!)
