A is for acrylic. I swirled globs of acrylic paint onto my Frisbee, let it dry, then peeled it off and used scissors to cut it into the letter A.
B is for beads. I covered a chipboard B with tacky glue, then dumped yellow seed beads on top. I used my craft pick to turn the ones that landed on their sides.
C is for crayon. I colored on white cardstock, then cut out a C.
D is for denim. That link goes to denim patches, but I actually cut up an old pair of jeans to make the letter D.
E is for enamel. I cut out an E from cardstock, then covered it with Enamel Accents. I love that stuff. It dries to a hard, shiny, dimensional surface.
F is for felt. Not much to say here. I cut the letter from felt.
G is for glitter. No more loose glitter for me. I'm all about Stickles for maximum sparkle.
H is for hemp. Technically, I'm not sure that the rope stuff I used for this is actually hemp, but I think it is so I went for it. There aren't that many options for H.
I is for ink. I used a blending tool to put different shades of ink onto cardstock, then cut out the letter I.
J is for jewels. Acrylic, but still jewels. In another application, I might call them rhinestones but then they wouldn't start with the letter J.
K is for kraft. I recently learned that kraft paper is named for the German word Kraft, meaning strength. Fortunately, it's easy to cut with scissors.
L is for lace. Two snips of lace ribbon glued together = Letter L.
M is for marker. Really basic here - I colored on paper, then cut it out.
N is for newspaper. Turns out you can buy all sorts of newspaper-printed stuff... deli paper, tissue paper, even wallpaper! I used the local paper.
O is for origami. I found a tutorial for turning a dollar bill into the letter O, but I used white paper instead.
P is for pipe cleaner. Another very quick and easy letter.
Q is for q-tip. This one was tricky. I ended up soaking two Q-tips and then gently easing them into a small medicine cup which held the curve while they dried over the course of a few days. Then I snipped them and glued the parts back together to make the Q.
R is for ribbon. Three snips, two twists, some glue, and a heavy book while it dried.
S is for sequins. I put tacky glue on another chipboard letter and layered the sequins on top.
T is for tissue paper. It took about 2 seconds to cut this out.
U is for unryu. I know it by a different name (starts with M!) but you have no idea how happy I was to learn its U name. Doubly cool because I had some on hand to cut!
W is for wire. Twisteez wire, in this case! Another material I always keep on hand.
X is for xerox. OK, so xerox is not an art material itself, but it's the best I could do for X. I cut the letter from a handout I didn't need anymore.
Y is for yarn. I could have done a few quick snips to make the letter Y, but I opted instead to crochet my letter. It's just a chain stitch, so it was still quick and easy.
Z is for zipper. Remember the denim from letter D? Same pair of old jeans.
This is really cool.ReplyDelete
