I "heart" U

Here's some of my very favorite decorative letters I've done. These were made for a special someone!

The paper used on these letters is G45 A ladies Diary.  I'm not used to using such light colors, but these colors fit this wonderful person's home decor in her scrapbook room!  I made the wings by drawing them freehand. I used a cavas type fabric with a doily on top.  I frayed the edges of the wings with some scissors. I also used chipboard insde the wings to make them sturdy. The wings are stapled to the back of the letters with industrial strength staples.  I did stamping with embossing.  Added lots of flowers, charms, vintage poetry paper, Tim Holtz products and even some chicken wire!  Used texture paint to a lot of the edges and you can really see the texture on the chicken wire. The letters are purchased from Joanns (or Micheals?) and the heart frame comes from Walmart.  All the paper has been sewn around the edges with my sewing machine and distressed with the Tim Holtz distressing tool!
