a completed project

I am currently taking an online class by Christy TomlinsonThe SheArt Workshop. I have several backgrounds completed now. They look very grungy and boy to me and I'm just not sure how to finish them yet. My first completed project is a set of magnetic alphabet letters for the refrigerator. I've been casually looking all over for one of those cheap plastic sets, but have only found a number set. So, I decided to make my own for Lucas. I found a package of plain paperboard letters at Michael's and decided to apply my mixed media skills to them. I love the way they turned out and Lucas is having fun with them too. Below is a series of photos of the different layers I added to get to the final product.
