Grunge Lettering

Hi there

Here is the page I did using these letters!

Well as my first project I thought I would post how to create Grunge lettering. This is great for all those die-cut letters you have in your stash that just don't match the colors of the page you are busy with.
Push out your letters then stick them with craft glue face down onto old dictionary pages or in this case, old telephone directory.

Add ImageThen tear the paper off the edges of
the letters once the glue has dried. Using sand paper, sand the edges smooth and randomly paint craft glue on the front of the letters to seal them, as where you have no glue the Distress ink takes rather darkly.

Then once that is dry, Distress ink the fronts of your letters in the color that suits your page!



  1. Hi Bella! What a fabulous idea! I love those letters. A great way to use up the old phone books too.

  2. This is SUCH a wonderful idea!! I love scrapping with found objects and scraps... this is definitely going into my repertoire.

  3. You make it sound so simple! Thanks for the inspiration...I may actually try this now. I've been scared of doing anything with letters, as far as covering them goes, but this looks do-able. :)

  4. May I simply just say what a relief to find somebody that truly understands what they are discussing
    online. You actually realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    More people ought to check this out and understand this side of the story.
    It's surprising you aren't more popular since you most certainly possess the gift.
