4. With a ballpoint pen, trace around the letters, pressing down firmly. You don’t want to rip through the paper, but you want to leave a good impression on the cover underneath.
5. Check every so often to make sure you are getting the image you want on the cover. This is where it’s very important that you have that small piece of tape working for you. You don’t want that top paper to slip!
6. Once you’ve traced your entire quote, carefully remove the paper and adhesive. Try not to rip the cover.
7. Get out your paints and alternate the colors to get a fun playful title. I left some of my letters blank; it adds so much to the overall look. Once you’re done painting and your letters are dry, trace around them again with a black scrapbooking pen, I used my EK Success .05 journaling pen.
8. Now cover each letter painted and not with a thick layer of with Glossy Accents, the thicker the better. This will create an epoxy look once the glue dries. The drying takes a while, set your project aside for a few hours so you don’t smudge it.
9. Now you have a fun personalized gift for someone special, or yourself. You can also use stamps with this technique.
