Oh hi guys. Just a panda. Wavin' at ya'. 

I was typing with the font Snap and the O's looked too much like panda eyes... I couldn't resist!

Funny thing about Funnels...

I don't really have interesting thoughts while working alone.

Font - Your Just An Idiot.
The true font has little smilie faces for the O's counter, but I covered them up.

Oh wait, I haven't covered that yet. Okay! The negative space inside a letter form is a counter. There can be closed counters (like the inside of the letter O) and open counters (like with the letter G).
However, the negative space inside a lower case "e" is not just a closed counter... it's called the eye. Not really sure why it gets special treatment - it just does.

Bein' Crafty

A friend of mine had an amazing project proposal for her sister's baby shower. Several of her friends were assigned letters to create or decorate, so the end project would be all the letters of the alphabet that will be displayed on the wall of the baby room. Click here to check out the inspiration photo.

Obviously, I asked to do the letter K. So my three letters were J, K, and L.


And after!

I really love this idea. I might steal it and make something similar to dress up the entry hall or living room.

Just in case you're curious, the J is made of some old blue jeans that I colored pink with fabric pastels. The back of the letter K is foam sheet that I spray painted lime green (just happened to have that color laying around) and then added glitter and stickers. The L has the super adorable robot I found at Hobby Lobby and the dots were made with glue & glitter.
