Altered Letter from Michael's dollar bin

Hi everyone! I have a fun project to share with you guys today. The week before last, I altered this letter for a scrappy friend and used a bunch of gorgeous I Am Roses flowers. I wanted to share this sooner, but it was a bit of a rough week for me last week... so I decided to share it for my I Am Roses project for today! If you follow the I Am Roses Design Team channel, you may have seen a brief sneak peek of this project on the new DT announcement vid. ☺

You can find these letters from the "dollar" bin at Michael's. As you might know, Michael's dollar bin doesn't necessarily mean everything in the bins cost a dollar (LOL)... I "think" I got this large letter for $2 or $3. ☺

I painted the base of the letter with acrylic paint, sprayed with Lindy Stamp Gang Scintillating Silver Glitze Spritz and layer on design paper by Prima from the Reflections collection.

Here are some pics to get you started:

I created a video tutorial showing you exactly how I altered this letter. Check out the video tutorial HEREBe sure to subscribe to the I Am Roses Design Team channel on YouTube for your daily dose of flower inspiration!

I Am Roses Products used on this project:

Dark Brown Rose Leaves (not in stock, but try these Brown Rose Leaves, and use your Lindy Stamp Gang spray in Dark Chocolate Truffle for a similar look!)

Thanks so much for dropping by today. Wishing you all an amazingly crafty week ahead!

hugs! ❤
