Altered "J" for a friend

Hi everyone!!

I have another fun project to share with you guys! I created this altered J using one of those paper mache letters from Joann's and Graphic 45's Le Romantique paper collection. I had so much fun creating this and can't wait for my special friend to get her hands on it! She loves butterflies as much as I do, so the Le Romantique paper collection was just PERFECT! I hope she loves it! ❤

Here are some pics...

First, I applied 1 coat of gesso to prep the surface of the paper mache "J." Then I used some Folk Art Metallic paint in the "champagne" color and added a layer over the gesso. It created a very pretty sparkly surface! I traced the J onto the Le Romantique paper, cut it out and adhered it down using glossy accents. I used Ranger Distress Ink in Vintage Photo to distress the edges...

The sentiment is by Invoke Arts...

I love the 12x12 tag page... I used one of the "ribbon slide" tags here and ran some Maya Road velvet trim through it...

I love to layer I Am Roses flowers... layering on the rose buds adds the perfect touch!

Thanks so much for stopping by the check out my latest projects!

Enjoy the week ahead and happy scrappin'!
