So the wooden letters i got from my local crafty store really cheap and i painted them first with white chalk paint and then sanded them all around and smoothed out those rough edges you see. Then i traced around each of them onto pieces of a Salvage District 6x6 pad in different patterns. I cut them slightly smaller and then sanded again around all the sides with a nail file. I wanted the papers to be really neutral so this paper line was just perfect. Then i could added stamping and stenciling to it and it would really stand out.
For these 2 letters i chose pretty pink flowers and little bits of stenciling in white gesso. I also painted one of the wood key pieces white to use on it. If it doesn't match you can always paint it or chalk it to match so don't let all those pretty things in your stash stay unused ok. Have fun and think outside the box when you work with your stuff. And you never know what can happen and you will use up some of those things you have been meaning to use in your stash.
On my letter A i wanted to add the new little mini dots from Prima... these give it such a fun texture and it doesn't over power it. I love this paper and all the flowers look so pretty on it. I wished i had more flowers to use but i think i will go on a buying trip and get a few more for it and add them later.
For this letter E i used the pale white paper and then stamped it with a border stamp in a very light grey ink. I also found these cute distressed hearts in the wood embellishments from the set so i used 3 of them on each of the letters. And I tied a bit of the yarn on it just because.
And here is my letters all out on the table. I am going to put them above the window in my room and maybe make some prettier curtains to go under them now. Seems like every project turns into another one. There are some fun new DIY furniture things in Prima i would love to try so maybe that
will be next on my list. Thanks for stopping over and have a really wonderful day!!
