Painting for the family

This was made for my new gorgeous nephew, Kaiden! During my husband's visit to South Africa, he got to spend lots of time with the little guy. [Me, jealous!] I hope they love these letters for Kaiden.

This H was made for my mom for Christmas...it was supposed to be for Mother's Day last year but you know how that goes! I painted, crackle painted; decoupaged some amazing scrap paper and floral cutouts from wrapping paper; scanned Proverbs 3:5 from a vintage bible, then dipped it in instant coffee grounds that I mixed with a bit of water to antique it and added that; scrap letter accents; and then the black rub-ons were the final touch before a nice varnish. Oh yes and I also added a clear sticker with just the words. I was pretty content with the way it came out--but more importantly, I think my mom loves it.

You are amazing!! I love them all... you inspire me. I did try my hand at some of my own letters. I enjoyed myself very much and can't wait to get settled so that I can make some more!
