Acrylic Butterflies Embellishment
Happiness Is Chocolate Sprinkles

Welcome sign

 

These large Expressions words from Clear Scraps are very large - more than 12" long in most cases - so they don't always fit simply placed straight across a 12x12 layout.  There are creative ways to make them fit if a layout is what you want to do - break the word in pieces, cut the letters up, or make a two-page layout.  But one thing that you can do with a large word like this is a wall hanging like this one.

I used 5 of the pages from the Large Pennant Banner to make a banner large enough to hold my large word WELCOME and also a couple of little butterflies on the ends.

The pennant pieces I covered with patterned paper and then stitched them down with my sewing machine.  I added flowers to some of them in layers.  For the acrylic word and the butterflies (taken from the Clear Mini Butterfly Ornament album), I used alcohol ink (Eggplant) and Goosebumps, which, interestingly, turned my purple alcohol ink into a mixture of purple and pink.  The goosbumps took awhile to dry on the slick acrylic surface but I think the effect in the end is really cool!
