{DIY} Valentine craft idea on a dime

When I tell you this DIY Valentine art work {craft} took me all of a few minutes and just a few dollars, that is the truth!
Of course most of my crafts are done on a dime, that is the fun of it.

Started with a blank white canvas board, Graphite chalk paint that was recently loaned to me by a friend here. I wanted to test out the color.  I love it, but it is NOT going to be the one for the entertainment center.
Much to cool with the butter walls.
Stencil bought at Hobby lobby for 2.00.

I made this craft for our bedroom, which is getting ready for Spring soon.
I know we are still in January, I just meant Cleaning wise.

Special gift from my FIL this past Christmas.  He said it has been in the family for over 80 years.
I love it!

Painted the canvas Graphite, let it dry,
taped my stencil on lightly,
and used a stencil brush and craft paint to fill in my stencil color.
