I made this layout with Making Memories paper and embelishments. The chipboard letters were from We Are Memory Keepers. I covered the letters with paper that matched. This is a good technique to use when you have chipboard letters but they don't match your layout. I have also used paint. I just apply the paint with a small paintbrush. I have also spritzed letters with water, then splatter paint pens until it gets a color I like. I have also covered letters with my brush markers. If I don't want to wait for paint or markers to dry, I hit them with my heat tool, otherwise I work on another part of my layout while they dry. It usually takes about an hour but depends on how thick I paint. Try these techniques, or think of something else. The ideas are endless.
