What to do with those die cut letters....
Classic alphabet Upper case dies from Memory Box... I just had to have a play.
I used my journal book as a base and started by spritzing the page with water and placing the 'that special touch' cogs mask on the right hand side. I then spritzed with Cosmic Shimmer Bronze Blush mister and allow to dry. I then took a sheet from my dictionary and stuck a few pieces on. I then placed my cogs stencil back in place and added some more colour using gathered twigs distress ink so some of the cogs design was also over the dictionary wording. I then cut out the die out of white card and used the waste piece as a stencil. I used a combination of spritzing the ink through the stencil and also using it with my cut n dry foam with the distress ink to have a few random letters in the background. I used all my white letters to create a random tumbling letters pattern... being careful not to spell out any unfortunate words!! I cut out the words 'create' and 'art' from the lower case alphabet. I kept the 'create' in white and stuck at the bottom of the page. The 'art' wording i used Indigoblu's flitterglu and then applied gilding flakes before sticking to the top.
This piece is a perfect example that you can create art out of anything! Just a few letters and some spritzer sprays and look what appears. It's great fun - I definitely recommend giving it a try!
