a little love

While at Kohl's today I saw the cutest plate.  It was a red square with "love" written in white.  I almost bought it but like any good crafter, I thought- I can make that myself.  So I came home and found this plate in my stash.  I know it's a crazy pattern.  But I bought it for the shape and always intended on painting it. 
 I used glossy craft paint.  Many, many coats of glossy craft paint. 
 It didn't cover completely, but I decided I liked the stripes.  Or maybe I was just done after the 10th coat of paint. 
I was going to use my Cricut to cut some vinyl letters.  But my littlest guy is asleep right next door to my craft area and it's so not worth waking him up.  I found these glittery letter stickers and thought they would work just as well.

 Wall-ah!
