    Bought this plain wooden cut out of the word FAITH at the dollar store, used brown acrylic paint to stain the wood and then used patterned paper,goodies from some of the wonderful metal swaps I've been in,and clear stickers. My first major altered project! Need to apply a coat mod modpodge & I'm done!

    It's a gift for my MIL (not that she'll like it probably).

    <span class="ev_code_RED"> OPINIONS WANTED: I am thinking of removing the flower that dots the "i",it's matte finish silver & just seems too much. It does add a bit of whimsy, but well I just don't know~I think I would use a coordinating paper instead...what do you think?</span>

    I know what you mean about the flower - It is a little stark in comparison to the other embellishments; however, I think it serves the purpose very well of making the I stand out since it is a little darker than the other letters - think it would kind of get lost without your flower.

    are you able to distress the flower to make it a bit less?

    I like it and I should do one for my MIL because she would appreciate it

    whoo whoo your on a roll, maybe I miss your work because you use off-beat titles? lol I really like this and you go ahead and give it to her and you can have Faith that if she turns up her nose that you get more enjoyment out of life than she does. Because people that are like that are their own worse enemy. Okay enough pontificating (whoweee big word for Lori lol) My suggestion is walnut ink or tea stain the flower

    It all looks great! Congrats on your first big alter job! and I agree with Lori- I think you can still use the flower by rubbing some paint or alcohol ink or stayz-on ink on it to cut back the silver shine.
