Today's episode is brought to you by the letter F

My grandson, Ivan is 2 and is starting to really get into his numbers and letters. I thought it would be a fun to start making projects that featured different ones. Today's tribute is to the letter "F". Which in this case is for frogs! I began with a wooden letter from Michaels and painted it white with acrylic paint. I stamped all the various frogs from Storage Units, Ink & More's Leap Frog set and then colored them with Copic markers. When the paint was completely dry, I added Making Memories letter stickers to spell out "is for Frogs".

It's hard to tell from the photo, but I added Diamond Glaze to their eyes for added dimension. I finally sponged around the edges with green acrylic paint and added a small green gingham bow.

Thanks for dropping by.

It's all about the details:
Wooden Letter: Michaels
Stamps: SU Ink and More
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Acrylic paint,Diamond Glaze, ribbon, MM letter stickers
Tools: Copic Markers

What a fabulous idea!! How cool would all the letters look all lined up on a wall. Decorated by you of course!
