Ampersand Art

Hi all! If you saw my Glitter Heart Art then you may remember that I mentioned I wanted to do another piece of art for my on-going gallery wall. Well here is that art! I wanted something very simple, here is what I did:

What you need:
First I used Silhouette Studio to design my image. I made an ampersand in Baskerville Old Face font, then cut my image using my Portrait onto white vinyl. 

Next I took transfer paper and put it over the ampersand, attaching the ampersand to the paper.

Then I transfered the ampersand to a piece of gold 12x12 inch paper. I choose to place my ampersand 
in the lower left corner, but you could really put it anywhere. 

Finally I placed my art into a simple black frame and boom! Done!

I love how simple and beautiful it turned out to be! I can't wait to add it and the Glitter Heart Art to my gallery wall. While working on these to art projects I came up with a couple more things to add to my gallery wall. Hopefully I'll get around to making those additional things soon so I can show you all an updated gallery wall!


  1. I just bought a silhouette. I will have to try this! I just started a blog with my friend Kari. She just completed an ampersand wall and this would fit right in http://www.youme-we.com/blog/the-reveal-ampersand-gallery-wall-coffee-nook-makeover
    Thanks for the amazing inspiration!

    1. I'm so glad that you like my art and that it inspired you!! I'm going to feature the ampersand wall Kari posted about on my Facebook page. : )

  2. Thank you so much for the affirmation on your facebook page! That was very thoughtful of you! We greatly appreciate it!
