I have gold rush fever, and I can’t stop giving things the Midas touch!
My recent endeavor is gold typography. I have been seeing a lot of really great quotes or art in this glamorous medium, and I can’t help but join in on the bling crafting fun.Peonies + Brass
There a lot of ways you can do the typography art, but I didn’t want to spend any extra money, so I used some items that I already have to create my own little slice of gilded quotable bliss.
Materials I used:
The quote I chose for my soon to be framed art is the Louise Hay affirmation, “Always Believe Something Wonderful Is About to Happen” because I know that’s a constant thing I need to remind myself everyday.
So I fired up my Silhouette machine, chose a font that I wanted my quote in, and made a stencil with cardstock. I put the stenciled cardstock over white paper and carefully taped each side. I then colored it in using the Yellow Gold Bic marker on white paper.
Optional: You can also give it some extra sparkle by adding some glitter for a little twinkle. I used some gold glitter by spraying a little adhesive and then sprinkling it randomly on the paper. I let dry overnight just to make sure & then framed it in an Ikea frame.
Here is my finished creation! I can’t wait to do more. I think next time I will play around with some gold foil.
