I'm pretty happy with how these turned out.
The D is distressed paper. I used a tea bag for part, followed by walnut ink (which was pretty strong so I had to soak up much of the ink), then juice from some blueberries.
The E is embossing on metal. This piece really brought back memories from my grade 8 metalworking class. Now I am wondering what ever happened to the embossed piece I did back then. I think it was of a sailing ship.
The challenging part with this letter was not the embossing, but rather with colouring the metal; I used black acrylic paint, then wiped if off in circular motions to leave some of the paint in the grooves and to tone down the copper colour of the metal. It took a few tries before I was satisfied with the look.
Ready to create F & G.

It's taken years to discover the medium I enjoy the most. And how what I have learned before somehow fits into what I am doing now. Even when I travel my needles and threads are with me so I can continue to create while away.
