it's dry now!
so all it required was an 8" x 24" canvas from JoAnn's, ModPodge glue, and fabric scraps. the yellow is pattern tissue pieces. remember the little flying goose pendant i bought? well, it was packed for shipping with crumbled pattern pieces. i saved them and decoupaged them to the canvas and while i waited for the glue to dry i cut out my letters.
i made two sets of letters; one black and the other scrappy Fassett pinks. i used Microsoft Word to print out the letters. then i put a layer of ModPodge and carefully stuck them down.
now i have to nail some picture hangers into the back and i have a new sign for my studio....i have other ideas for this technique....
