Monogram Frame using gilding flakes and transfer it sheets

Hello everyone,
Ranjitha here. Hope everyone is doing great I am back today with a beautiful monogram inspiration. The theme for our Monthly Challenge is ” Glitter and Shine “and so I am here with some inspiration for the same. Don’t forget to play along, it would be fun to see you join the challenge.

For today’s post, I am going to show you how to use the most trending Transfer it sheets and Gilding flakes on paper and make a beautiful monogram.


Firstly I am starting with a watercolor paper that measures 9″ X 9″. This would be my base. Onto this I have traced letter A and the name “Alaknanda”. Then I am going to transfer a beautiful ballerina image on to the paper.

After the image has been transferred , I have applied gilding flakes in the shade Copper penny using gilding glue.

Then I am hand lettering the name in Faux calligraphy style and then adding a loose watercolor background to the entire piece.

I’m finishing off by matting it with Charcoal black card stock and then mounting it onto a white frame. That’s it a beautiful monogram is ready. This would be a perfect gift for every little girl out there.
