A 5x5" stretched canvas was the perfect size to use. I spread my texture paste. tinted with aqua with mini beads mixed in, first and then added the tan tined paste. I used white embossing powder while the paste was wet and then melted it with my heat gun.
After the paste dried, I glued the baked, painted, varnished clay letters to my piece. I set some eye screws on the top to use in hanging my piece and three more on the bottom to dangle my beads.
Wasn't sure what beads I wanted to use, but there sat my lonely paper beads I had made a few years ago and knew I could find some to go with my colors.....(I probably have at least a thousand left!).
I love it! Thanks Seth for your inspiration and PaperArtsy for another great challenge!!
