Do you want to hear a story?
They really liked it, and asked me if they could send me some wreath forms, and wooden bangles to play around with. After thinking about it for a full two seconds, I replied yes. (I think it was more of a hell YES, now that I consider it).
I received my generous package (thanks again!), and have been playing ever since. I couldn’t resist the bangles, so this is the project I am bringing you today.
Karen, The Graphics Fairy (hi Karen!), posted this wonderful alphabet, and simply put…
I wanted to wear it.
This is how the bangles arrived, smooth and ready to decorate. I painted it with Martha Stewart’s new paint in Summer Linen (satin). I printed out the lower case alphabet…
And turned it over and rubbed pencil over the back.
I taped it securely to the bracelet, and traced over the letters with a very sharp pencil. I shifted the paper and did it again so the bangle was covered.
After removing the paper, I went over the letters with an extra fine artist pen in black.
I carefully erased any pencil marks, and gave the whole bangle a coat of Fine Crackle medium (from the Martha Stewart paint line). The effect is very subtle, especially over the linen color. When everything was completely dry, I sprayed it with a clear acrylic sealer.
This alphabet is so pretty with its swirls, I love it against the linen color. Monday is already better with this new piece of jewelry!
I have a material connection because I received a gift or sample of a product for consideration in preparing to write this content. I was/am not expected to return this item or gift after my review period.
