Can you tell I am addicted to these awesome chipboard alphabets! They are so easy to dress up and are the perfect size for my layouts.
In November of 2009, I had the chance to take a class with Donna Downey at my local scrapbook shop. It was such a great experience and really stretched me creatively. I am a girl who likes to measure and be precise so I think Donna found herself getting me started on a lot of the steps like painting and using modeling paste to show me I couldn't mess it up. I decided to scrap these couple of pictures from that class and to try a new medium I had not tried before, Distress Stickles. I love Stickles and this style is no exception. Have a look here.
I used the CB Vette Alphabet - Lowercase. I painted them with Deep Coral Making Memories paint. Once dry, I topped them with the Distress Stickles in Worn Lipstick. The difference between the Distress and the regular Stickles is that the Distress are more chunky and look more like mica than glitter. You can see in this picture that the letters do still have a bit of a sparkle to them as well. To adhere them to the page, I used a small glue dot in the fatter portions of the letter.
Don't be afraid to experiment with all kinds of mediums on the Buzz and Bloom chipboard alphas. I promise you they can take it!
