Flower-Covered Marquee Letter for Wild Orchid Crafts

Hello, everyone and happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! It's my turn to post on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog and I'd love for you to stop by if you have time :) This month, the designers were challenged to create projects outside our norm, so today, I have a home decor project to share with you featuring several Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and embellishments.


So, when I had the idea to decorate the letter, I had my niece Lexi in mind. I thought I'd pretty up the L for her. Then when I finished, I thought, pink, flowers, why not just keep it for myself??!! Lexi never has to know if was supposed to be for her ;) But then my Mom saw it and said, "Oh, did you make that for me?" Her name is Lana :)  So, to decorate my Mom's letter, I painted it pink and used papers from Lemoncraft on the inside. I covered the outside using Andy Skinner's Mega Crackle technique.


I used an assortment of flowers to cover the letter, including Lotus, Cottage Roses, Trellis Roses, Lily Flowers, Apple Blossoms, Hip Rosebuds, Sweetheart Blossoms and Open Roses.I also used Small Double Stamens, Pearl Sprays, Flat Back Pearl String and White Mulberry Paper Leaves.





And here it is lit up:

How fun is this Lisa, Love the big L- the initial of my last name. Have a great day my friend

Kathy Krug said...

If Lexi reads this she will insist that you make her one too, and in your spare time you can make another one for yourself. Do you have a spare K lying around anywhere? So very fun and creative and what a wonderful night light.

Mrs.B said...

WOW - this is stunning Lisa, no wonder your Mom wanted it, (you'll just have to make another for yourself now). Love the fact that you've used flower lights as well as all the pretty flowers, so very creative.
