Create your own Nursery ArtALPHABET ART 008

It started when I was 8.5 months pregnant. I suddenly had an urge to create things for my baby girl. What you see in this image came about accidentally. I was browsing in a craft shop on my local high street. They had some wooden alphabet, but they did not have all the letters. I left on a mission to find these letters. I googled ‘laser cut wooden letters’ and found exactly what  I was looking for; wooden letters in different sizes. The plan was to paint them and frame them. The background was a painting that I did about a year ago, it was already framed! I took the framed painting to get an idea of the size frame I needed to buy. As I arranged the letters on the painting, I thought this is it!ALPHABET ART

You will need:

  • Canvas
  • Acrylic paints
  • Paint brush
  • Wooden letters
  • Glue
  • Frame

Here is how you can create your Alphabet Art:

  1. On a blank stretched canvas 60cm x 40cm, create an abstract skyscape using acrylic paints. Let it dry.
  2. Using 7cm laser cut wooden letters, arrange them on the painting, once it has dried.
  3. After all the letters are placed on the canvas, use Copydex craft glue to attach each letter starting with ‘A’.
  4. Use a frame without glass, or remove the glass from the frame before framing your Alphabet art.

DIY ALPHABET ART

Tips on how to cut costs: Frames can be quite expensive, but you can get cheaper framed in charity shops and Ikea. Shop around on Ebay for the wooden letters. If you have recently decorated your nursery or kid’s bedroom, you can use emulsion  instead of acrylic paints.
