Happy New Year's Eve!
As the year ends I start thinking about the year ahead, not making resolutions as such (way too much pressure!) but thoughts about what I would like my year to look like.
For me I want 2020 to be full of vitality.
To keep me focused I decided to decorate some wooden letters that will go in my new scrap room.
I started by choosing a 6" x 6" paper pack (Heidi Swapp Favorite Things) because I didn't need a lot of paper for each letter and I wanted them to be different but still work together. I traced the letter onto the back of the paper (remember to reverse the letter if required) and then fussy cut them out.
I gave the edges a couple of coats of gesso 'cause I wasn't sure what I was going to do but in the end I randomly painted them using Dina Wakley acrylic paints (Sky, Lime, Magenta & Blushing).
I stuck the paper to the letters using gel medium and when dry sanded the edges, Added all my inspirational words and a few embellishments (Pink Paislee Citrus Bliss stickers & Cocoa Vanilla Life is Beautiful alphas).
Some close ups for you
If I accomplish all this, you wont know me in 2021!
Have a safe and happy New Year,
See you all next year
