Off the page project wooden letters - Love Life

This is part of the Love Life that i have in the shop. These are MDF wooden leters, and can be painted, papered and embellished or just left plain. This one is firstly painted silver around the edges, and then using paper I have decorated it. I like to use several different sheets, here i have used creative imaginations music sheet, and a variety of others. When doing this make sure that you design your whole project before starting to cut out and glue down. You need to be careful when selecting papers that you do not go to heavy down one end of the word, or when you hang it on the wall you will see that you word looks lopsided.
Again I use modpodge to glue the paper down, and i went over the top of the paper to seal it as well, again for flying insect marks. Then start to decorate each letter, try to do some repitition on your letters, this ensures that the word looks like it all goes together.
On this word I have used a chipboard dragonfly, paper flowers (yes do modge these if you want) bling, every girl needs some, ribbon, butterflies, and painted chipboard music notes.
We sell the letters in different sizes, from the great big letters about30cm high, to the little tiny ones, though i really wouldn't recommend decorating these, a little fiddly I think, maybe just emboss them or paint them.
Hope you like. To hang on the wall add picture hooks or in my case i have used velcro.
