Cherish The Memory Inspire Seaside Themed Altered Letters


I have a new make to share using the Summer Feelings paper pads available at Cherish The Memory.

I started off by painting each letter with white paint as an under coat and once that had dries i then painted over the top with DecoArt Premium Acrylic Turquoise. Then i applied DecoArt Texture Sand Paste and let it set.

I painted on Quinacidone Gold Fluid acrylic to get the rust. I wasn't sure to go steampunk on these or not so i met in the middle and went for a water worn look.

Next dye some cheese cloth. 
I used blue and light green to get this colour, This stuff is great as it gets disstressed when you heat dry it so you get this worn net look.

I used heavy gel medium to paste down the cloth and then i started decorationg the letters using the die cuts from the Summer Feeling Die Cut pad.

I also added gems and beads to the letters.

I used fake moss to create this underwater look. I was thinking about the things you find in the rockpools  after the tide has gone in.
