Today I'm up on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog to embellish a metal letter "H" for my husband, Hosho, for Father's Day! Thought it would look nice in his office and he can change out the picture when he wants to update.
Starting with an element that needs time to dry, I looped Girlie Grunge Twine in Navy three times. To keep its shape, I covered it with Girlie Grunge Art Medium on a Teflon® craft sheet. It can not only adhere but seal and stiffen materials too. Truly one of my "Go To" mediums!
While the twine dries, I rolled some stars on the metal letter "H" with E-Z Stars Runner Refillable Dispenser. Then pressed and rubbed Pigment Powder Gold into them. Use a small piece of baby wipe to clean the excess powder.
On the lower left side of the letter, I added two layers of ribbon for texture. Using Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2" Permanent, I adhered Texture Ribbons - White Burlap Ribbon to the metal and then Denim Ribbons - Dark Denim Ribbon with white stars on top.
For the star embellishment, I used Pigment Powder Gold and Pigment Powder Silver to color the 3D Foam Stars. Set aside to add later.
Now to adhere my looped twine embellishment. Again, I used Girlie Grunge Art Medium by dipping the twine into the jar. Place on top of the layered ribbon and press down to secure. The medium will dry clear.
After the twine dries, I placed the embellished 3D Foam Star on top but at the top, I added a 3D Foam Square - White, Regular to keep the star leveled, It was also a good place to push my memo pin in.
I trimmed my photo of my "boys" and slid in the memo pin. Now it's ready to give to my husband for his desk top or office wall :)
Thanks for stopping by!
