Once I figured out what I wanted to say, I measured the letters and figured out what size canvas I'd need. I picked up this one:
this). I did two coats of that as well, which was essential to really make it glow. I then stuck on the stickers. I had measured the width of each letter - they're not exactly identical - so I would know how much space to leave at the edges so the words would be centered. This is the result:
I'm a smidgen disappointed that it looks like some of the words are "angled" - they aren't! I think the issue is that the picture of the letter itself isn't perfectly straight. All of the stickers are touching one another, and I can tell that their edges are straight, so I think it must be the picture. Anyways, it's also hardly noticeable if you're looking at it from a different angle:
And here's the gold edge, in better light:
I'm very pleased with how the colors work together and with the rest of the room. More posting about that coming up shortly!
