I had an idea while browsing Hobby Lobby a couple weeks back. I love 'letters', individual letters, and came across some that drew my attention. I'm particularly fond of 'a's and thought I should spell out 'art' on the wall. I even knew right where I wanted to put it. Found the perfect A and T but couldn't find an r to suit my taste. Thought I could find a chip board r that wasn't a capitol, but no luck.
Well, surely I can figure out a way to make one myself. The other 2 letters where on a square background so the r should be cut out. I should do an 'altered art journal' type of r and would do it digitally. (After all that is my word this year.)
Sometime things just click and don't you love it when they do.
I was having so much fun, I may decide to make a whole alphabet. But when I finished, I just had to play with some layering and it ended up on a background too with fake brads holding it to a black mat board.
And now it didn't look right where I had originally planned to hang them, so I took a photo to 'move' the letters around in Photoshop. This even helped me to hang each one in the right place. In fact I plan to do this at work this month because it's time for some redoing there too.
PS: did you notice it says 2012? Oh, good grief!!!! And it is already March! (I may just leave it)

I am pleased with the results. Yeah! And the room is nearly finished. Hopefully I'll have a post later this week of before and afters.
