Hand Lettering #5: Personalized Birthday Magnets, Pisces

Hello everyone!!! :o)

Today I want to share with you two hand lettered personalized birthday magnets I made.

First I made yellow one for my friend Danijela.

When my boyfriend saw it, he asked for a same magnet, but in blue, for his friend. :o)

How I made magnets...

I cut 2" diameter circle bases from a Canson XL Mixed Media Paper.

I stamped adorable Pisces from Mama Elephant 'Cosmic Stars' stamp set on circle bases, hand lettered word Pisces in block letter handwriting style and friends' birthdays with Roman numerals. I wrote them on different days, but I went with same lettering style on both so I'm sharing them together. :o)

I prepared various hand lettered samples during my personal challenge Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces 2017 to color during a 7th 30 Day Coloring Challenge by Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker. These two also.

I colored both circles in watercolor technique, using Distress Inks, and left them dry on air.

A friend gave me bunch of magnet sheets last year to make my own magnets. I cut magnet circles with large scissors and glued them together with colored circles with universal UHU glue. I pressed magnets with a 32 cm x 32 cm, 1 cm thick glass plate and left them pressed for an hour. At this point my magnets were finished.

I needed that something something as a final touch on the yellow one. I coated yellow Pisces with Clear Wink of Stella. Love the shimmer and my friend too!!! :o)
