Marquee Love

Morning everyone, Michelle here, I have a beautiful Marquee Love Ampersand light in my creative area that adds to the ambiance of my room. How good are these totally customised letters from Heidi Swapp. 

I have often admired these cool letters in trendy store fronts and classy parties but thought I couldn't create that look for my room. Now I can have exactly what colours I want and it can be changed at anytime I like with total freedom. This may not stop at one I have plans to add more and use them in other rooms in my house, because why not!

They are so easy to put together with the well thought out diagram and instructions included in the box. The options are endless and there are so many lovely washi tapes, glitters and paper pads in the Scrapping Clearly store to create with. Please take a look they are gorgeous and can also be used for other projects. 

I spray painted the entire ampersand with my favourite Gold paint and it took really well. I then added the gold glitter tape around the outside edges in one long strip starting underneath. With the tight inside corners I used a wooden skewer to smooth the tape into the corners that were hard to reach with your fingers.

The photos didn't do the glitter tape justice because it looks so pretty and sparkly in real life. I am so happy with how it turned out and how easy it was to make it my own. It looks classy and elegant with not much effort. Love it!

Happy creating today love Michelle xx
