"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

DECOUPAGED MONOGRAM Hybrid Tutorial for Deena Rutter...


Hello! I wanted to share an easy project and tutorial for this sweet Decoupaged Monogram that I created for Deena Rutter's blog, using some of her gorgeous digital papers and elements. We are doing a Back-To-School series each Monday this month, so be sure to head over to her blog and check out some of the other amazing projects!

This monogram is seriously easy, but looks fabulous and makes an amazing gift!

SUPPLIES:
  • Your digital kits – I used Deena’s Roots and Wings Full Kit 
  • Chipboard or papier-mâché letter
  • Adhesive, I used Modge Podge and glue dots
  • Buttons
  • Scissors and/or a craft knife
  • Sanding tools
  • Ribbon (if you want to hang it)


DIRECTIONS:
Step 1 – Set up your pages of papers and elements and print. I printed the strips of digital patterned paper onto regular copy paper and the elements onto thick card stock. Cut your strips and have them ready to use.
Step 2 – Brush Modge Podge onto the front of the letter and add the paper strips, overlapping them slightly.
Step 3 – Once dry, flip the letter over and trim. You can neaten up the edges with sanding tools.  (At this point I brushed Modge Podge to the papers on the front of the letter to make it shiny and more durable.)

Step 4 – Decorate with your elements and buttons. You can also tie ribbon to the top to hang it.


Bye for now,
