Easy Monogram


Frame (painted your color of choice)
1/4" board cut to fit
Scrapbooking paper

I had the board and paper left over from my World Market Art project and I picked up a nice oak frame at Goodwill for $1.50.

The frame was painted Espresso (American Accents) and the board cut to fit.

A thin layer of modpodge was applied to both the board and the back of the paper.

Air bubbles were worked out and the paper left to dry.

I used my Cricut to cut out initals using brown scrapbooking paper.

The letters were modpodged on, and after they dried, a thin layer of modpodge was applied over the entire picture.

Before the modpodge had set, I went back with a toddler paintbrush and created swirls for texture.

After everything had dried, the "artwork" was put into the frame and a wire hanger attached to the back.

Super easy and cheap!

And yes, my lighting really is that bad...

I love the texture idea in the modpodge.
