In the name of LOVE

I did get to create a bit over the weekend.
We were out at camp on Thursday, so I put these together that evening before the family came out.
My niece asked me if I could make these for her wedding.
Of course I was honored to have been asked.
She is getting married next weekend :)















 Maybe this photo shows the paper a bit better.
She picked out the letters and the papers.
I adhered the paper on the letters, then sanded the edges to make them smooth, so it looked like part of the words, just like how I make my mini albums.
Lastly, I painted the edges of the letters.
I can't wait to see them on the wedding table. What she has planned for these are so special.
I will share that after the wedding.















Here is the back of them. I like to make the back of my projects just as pretty as the fronts. I think it may be from when I used to x-stitch. I was obsessive with having my stitches look just as good as the front..notice I don't x-stitch anymore, lol.















Onto My Day:
I worked most of the day today. I was just having a heck of a time balancing, grrrrrr.
I also ran out and did some errands.
That's about it for my day today :)

I hope you all had a creative Monday :)

Tracy :)

  18. I know how tedious it can be to cover those letters, but I'm glad I'm not obsessed with doing the back. LOL! It takes me long enough to do the fronts, let alone the backs too! I can see why they would need to be in this case though and they look very pretty!
