A Little Something

Hi crafty folks! I've finally rolled myself back to the computer after all the holiday excess. :) I hope you had a great holiday and the new year is treating you well!

Today I'm sharing a little whatsit I included in Christmas gifts I sent to my fabulous sister. She is a few years older than me and an incredible artist. Over the last couple of years we've become close, and she inspires me daily. I made this to tuck on a shelf in her studio to remind her what she does for me. 

The base is an old Scrabble tile tray covered in gorgeous Graphic 45 paper. The Scrabble tiles were sanded on the edges and inked. I glued the tiles together using Glossy Accents. The back flourish is Dusty Attic and the pearls are from a Viva Decor pearl pen. It's the first time I tried the pearl pen -- I like it for the most part, but it won't replace flatback pearls for me.

Thanks for visiting!

Love the Scrabble 'A Little Something'! Can you please give me a few more details - where do I obtain that wired decorative piece above the 'YOU' letters?

Hi Bat Mitzvah - it's actually a Dusty Attic chipboard piece! Thanks for your kind words. :)
