Hello, everyone! It's Sue Sykes here today, a little bittersweet that this is my last day to share a project as a Guest Designer with the Susan K. Weckesser team. Susan and the ladies have been wonderful and welcoming, and I'd like to send them all a little note of thanks!
Today, I'm going to share an altered project with you. I have a box of "alterable" items that I keep for when inspiration strikes. I found this thin wooden alpha in there - I had purchased it a while ago at Michael's during a US shopping trip. I knew I wanted to alter it for Aili's shelf in her room but wasn't quite sure what to do. Susan's whimsical papers were perfect!
I covered the letter with patterned paper and ModPodge. While waiting for it to dry, I cut all of my flower pieces and foliage from various papers and created my flowers. Once the flowers were completed, I adhered them, one at a time, beginning with the largest flowers. After all the flowers were in place, I tucked in my foliage as needed, and added rhinestones as accents to a few flowers.
The corkscrew tendrils were created by covering thin wire with green paper tape and curling around the handle of my paper piercer. So easy and adds great texture!
Here's a view from the right and left sides.
Thanks again to Susan and her team for their kindness and inspiration over the last few months!
