What materials did you use? Pre-made wooden plaque and the letter 'm' on wheels, assorted opaque paint pens, a copy of a photo on regular copy paper, water based paints (e.g., fine tip black pen), stickers, Mod Podge Decoupage, Matte (non 'Paper'). White primer paint to the plaque, after sanding. Tacky glue and super glue gel were used, sometimes, together in one area, decorative paper, finger nail files to sand the edges of the paper at the wooden edges.

What are you most proud of? The illustration of the lady who happens to be African-American and I was happy with the way I was able to give her good looks justice.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I didn't have a clear goal or objective when I started this particular project, which is not unusual for me. I get excited about some projects and jump right in and usually hit a few walls along the way. It would be best to have the goals and objectives set beforehand, that would be a more professional way of doing it, then you would know where you were going, why, how, etc.. In a perfect world, not usually mine I'm afraid...I get excited and, just jump in! Couldn't do that on the job. Otherwise, easy if knowing all the steps involved.
