I'm linking with Scrapality for Scraptastic Saturday and want to share with you today my most recent little craft project.
I had purchased this wood letter a while back with the intent of doing something for my daughter Annie's room. I came across it the other day and knew just how I wanted to embellish it!
At first I thought about painting the letter - but I liked the natural almost craft paper brown look to it. My daughter's room has a Paris theme to it and is done in black, white, and hot pink. She has some Eiffel tower hangings and objects around her room already and I knew I didn't want to go obvious Paris on the "A". I wanted something that was sweet and had a kind of romantic French feel to it. I dug around and found this pretty lace I had and glued that on. I took a piece of hot pink card stock paper and cut part of it with shears and tore the other part. Then I took some chalk colored pencils I had and drew on the hearts and smudged around them a bit with a really dark pink and a white pencil. Then glued that strip over the lace. Added some white fabric letter stickers for my daughter's name. And the icing on the cake was a lovely romantic red rose sticker on the top. Voila!
