I was lucky enough to purchase this big bunch of old hand written and typed letters recently.
I really had no idea what I was going to do with them. I looked around my craft desk and my Twinkling H2o’s (shimmering watercolor paints) were still at hand so they were the medium of choice.
So I just sat down and made a big mess with lots of paint and water. It was really quite fun.
I used every color of H2o’s I had in different combinations. After playing and letting the letters dry, this is what I had.
But now what? I knew I could tear some of the papers up to use in mixed media pieces or my art journal but I had another idea.
These fun little stamps were also still on my craft desk so I decided to use them on some of the paper and make a bunch of small embellishments.
I think they turned out really cute and they have an awesome crackling paper texture. Now I am ready to made an art journal page using some of these cute little embellishments that were made from just messing around!
