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.
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!
