All About the Cake



 
Hello Lovelies!
Eek... I*m so excited to share this layout that I created for The Paper Girls Challenge.  The only requirement was to use "large letters."  Of course I didn*t have any in my stash, so I had to get creative.  I wanted to achieve letters that resembled piped icing for my cake layout.  The only two options I could think of were modeling paste and hot glue.  The latter option was the one I choose because lets get real, modeling paste is expensive and I didn*t want to waste a drop of it.  lol  Overall the hot glue worked great.  All I did was free hand some letters on scrap paper, placed it under wax paper, and traced the lines with my glue gun.  EASY PEASY!  The only draw backs are that the wax paper kind of sticks to the letters underneath and the letters take a few coats of paint.  If I used gesso as a primer it would of eliminated some of the coats. 

So yeah... I*m super pleased with the end result.  I will definitely use this technique again.  :)
