I found this Love Tree Wall Art on Land of Nod. I have a friend having a baby girl and her nursery is midcentury modern with bright primary colors. I thought it be a cute shower gift to make her some modern art for the baby’s nursery. Using 7 different premium vinyl colors from Silhouette I was able to recreate this using my Silhouette Cameo.
Silhouette Cameo machine
MDF board (I cut mine to 15” x 15”)
black spray paint
1. First I cut and sprayed a 15” x 15” piece of MDF with black primer followed by black spray paint.
2. I designed the tree in the Silhouette software using a heart image from the online store. I filled in all the hearts separately (with the color fill icon) so that I could remove only the colors I wanted to cut out. So the first vinyl I cut was the white. I highlighted all the white hearts and the trunk and moved it into the cut area and then proceeded to cut it out.
3. Then I transferred it to the board. Then I would highlight the next colored hearts and move those into the cut area repeating until all the colors of vinyl were cut and transferred onto the board.
Tip: In order to get it aligned correctly I made sure there was one heart of the previous color cut with the new color. Then I traced that heart onto the front of the transfer paper. Then I removed that heart and was able to use my tracing to line up that heart with the previous cut one.
If you have any hearts that look wonky in the end just remove it carefully to reposition.
