I haven't posted many projects 'round here lately, but thought this one definitely has a 'CRAFTSTER'fied attitude to it.

Base is scraps of colorful patterned paper bits, collaged to cardstock and sealed.  Then I spraypainted the alphabet on with red paint and stencils. 

Last, I used my new collage sheets to cut out the letters and glue those suckers down.


just shut up & let me CRAFT!

(not that I would SAY that, but sometimes I want too, ya know?)

It's a 4x4" piece; cause that's my favorite size lately.

ABCs are Made from these collage sheets:

(I call them RANSOM notes, 'cause they are old school).

Rock on with your Craft supplies!

What are collage sheets?  Did you make that then xerox it?  You say glue so .... these are cool and that's a saying that I would like to say too Wink

Yeah, I spent a week cutting letters, words and phrases from magazines and gluing them down, then had them professionally printed so I dont' have to do that again!  I just cut out the letters I need!  Plus, since they are on cardstock I don't have to worry about the letters ripping or anything like regular magazines do.

They are called collage sheets cause scrapbookers and people doing journals and ATCs use them to make their collages. Smiley

Thanks guys!

Ooooh, Magnets sounds like an AWESOME idea!  I'll have to see if I can work my mom's Xyron to make some.  And STICKERS!  Ha ha!  Now I'm too excited.
