The Letter M

I'm just finishing up a custom order for a letter "M". I was asked to use pale blue, gray and ivory for the colors, I purchased those colors in bazzill card stock and also a blue that was a smidge darker than the pale blue. Her walls are ivory so I chose the pale blue for the actual M shape and decided to accent it with the other colors. She wanted it to be 12" tall, on the computer I took the M she chose and did a loose sketch of what I thought it would look like. Once I had the right hand side completed (before glueing anything down), I sent her a photo to make sure I was going in the right direction. Once I received approval I continued to finish up the entire piece, going back and forth between the darker blue and the gray and ivory. I happened to have a pale blue sheer ribbon in the width that I wanted (1/2" ish) to hang it by; now all I have to do is create two tabs to go on the back from which the ribbon will attach. I can't wait to hear how she likes it.

Cheryl,

I chose that because the quilling strips I purchase aren't as thick and I wanted this to have some strength to it. I cut the strips myself, which wasn't too bad with my cutter; although I wondered if a paper shredder would have worked too. I did use my regular quilling strips to make the flowers and some of the other ivory colored "dot" embellishments.

Oh my goodness, this is gorgeous Tracey. No doubt she will love it. The detail of your design is amazing. It looks huge, larger than 12" :) The combo of the colors are perfect. Thanks for sharing!
