My Creative Space - wooden letters



I am covering some more wooden letters, for Anya this time. Hmm - this 'A' was harder than the simple 'J' - I did for my niece (tutorial included). I think I will need to take a bit more care with the other 3 letters.



I originally used the letters as a stencil for a painting I did when Anya was first born. It has been on her wall for the past two and a bit years and I am sick of it! Time to upgrade to something that says 2yrs plus :-) What is everyone else up to today at Kirsty's?
