Alrighty, for my project I created a wall hanging for Luka. I spelled out his name for each panel and used 4 of my favorite Lukas (Fisherman Luka
, Luka with Truck
, Fireman Luka
with Tuffy & Cowboy Luka
). The paper, except for the dark brown cs (Neenah), was from the same paper pad, MME's Twinkle, Twinkle Little Boy. I used the Cricut to cut out the LUKA letters (the font is George and Basic Shapes). I stamped the wood grain (All Night Media) in Distress Inks Vintage Photo and distressed the edges. Used the same distress ink to distress the patterned papers. For the smaller letters I used my Cuttlebug with some Cuttlekids dies. The panels were all purchased at Big Lots.
There are four panels that I altered, each 6" x 8". I will now give each panel individual attention. At the end of each I will list the stamp, Copics and any accessories used. The basics will be the same: Ink: Black Memento (Tsukineko); brown cs (Neenah); Distress inks - Vintage Photo; Patterned paper: (MME Twinkle, Twinkle Little Boy), panels (Big Lots).
