Alphabet art. I especially like the placement design of this one. So many ideas are running through my mind, even though this links back to a "to-buy" option. *HOW-TO* Buy wooden lettering in various sizes, glue them to a canvas block and paint over everything ... or paint the letters in various shades and tones of your colourscheme and then carefully glue them to the canvas

Seriously?! -- Vinegar works as a wood stain when you add a metal object in the mix and let it sit in a glass container for a week.
