Here's a project I made after being inspired by the book Creative Wood Letters . (I've reviewed this book here.) It wasn't one of the projects in the book (although there is an idea in there for collaging photos onto a wooden letter that I do intend to try), but the book got my mind whirring with my own ideas. Instead of going and buying wooden letters, I decided to use what I already have and make my own letters using layers of cardstock and recycled cardboard.
I designed my project in Silhouette Studio using a basic font and a cutting file of a seagull from the Silhouette store. I did cut most of it on the Silhouette Cameo but it didn't go through the thick cardboard so I had to finish cutting that by hand. For the top layer I used papers and shell die-cuts from a Tilda paper pad. I finished off my edges with gesso and Distress Ink.
