Altered Letter

I had fun altering this letter the other night. I made this for a little gal who wanted something for her best friends birthday. I wanted to create something girlish and sweet! I think the images capture that. Joanna comes over often to my house and loves to do art. I was honored that she asked me to do this. I think her friend Debbie will love it!

It is made from MDF and you can get them at Michaels.

I painted it with acrylics and then outlined and shaded with the oil pastels and inks. Used rub ons for the words.

Images are from Paper Imagery Designs

Thanks for the idea! I have a lot of nieces and nephews who are starting families and this is a great way to honor the birth of their children.
