Heart Specimen Art

I love me some specimen art!
  
Find my other specimen art HERE and HERE

I always change out this pretty little white frame with my holiday specimen art of choice.  It makes a quick touch of holiday decor.  All you need is paper or material, some of those foam adhesive dots, and a punch or cutting tool.  
I wanted to stay with my Valentine color scheme of reds and browns(burlap).  Here is what I did...

I made my background using a piece of burlap.  
Using my computer I typed the Bible verse I Corinthians 13 over and over to kind of create a book page, if you will.  I printed it out on white cardstock and used my cricut to make 24 little hearts.  I attached them to the burlap using the 3D adhesive foam dots.  The slightly bigger heart in the middle was cut from a red glitter paper.  
{Love.  Love.  Love}

Hello! It's my first time over here to your blog and I love it! This is such a cute project. I hadn't heard of "specimen art" until this post. I think it's adorable. I have wanted to do something burlap for my house, it's seems so "in" right now. This looks like one I might be able to pull off! :)
