This is another simple project you can use to make some one of a kind art for your home. I'll be putting mine in my office, someday :) It's as easy as tracing, cutting, and gluing.
You will need:
- Printed phrase
- Magazine pages
- Elmer's glue
Cut out the letters, skipping the duplicates and keeping your page as intact as possible- you'll use it as a guide later.
Then, simply trace the letters onto magazine pages, and cut them out. Go for pages with color and texture for the best effect.
Lay your letters out. If you like them, great! If not, just replace the ones you don't. I switched a few of mine up.
|I wasn't nuts about the two red Ps in a row, and I thought one of my Os looked a little flat.|
Finally, using your original sheet of printed paper as a guide, glue your letters onto a heavier stock paper. I used a sheet of watercolor paper.
|You can even make a few pencil marks to help you place the letters|
If you decide to give this a whirl, snap some photos and send them to me: holly[at]goeslightly[dot]com. I'd love to feature your project on the blog!
