upcycled wooden letter -- mixed media

Hi and good morning. 
I altered these  wooden letters to go with the layouts with my daughters pic. both letters are initials of their name.



  1. I hot glued the little emellies from my collection.
  2. gessoed it nicely, and then dried it well with heating tool
  3. covered the project with black acrylic paint.
  4. dry brushed the copper acrylic paint .
  5. once dried applied pearl powder here and there. fixed the powder on the project with heating tool
  6. finally applied golden shimmer.

These are glorious!!! I have just been looking at all the embellishments on the letters and was thinking that I had so many of them stuck in drawers. I really must do something like this with mine. You have inspired me!!! Just love your creations. Thank you so much for entering the Crafty Calendar (Add some Metal) challenge this month, lots of luck to you.
