A decorated ampersand by Yvonne Yam


Hello there! This is Yvonne. I've been seeing the ampersand popping up in a design element in many decor blogs and wanted to create my own. So I added some of my fave things to my wooden Typo ampersand...[perfect for this month's favourite things challenge]...


I started by covering the ampersand with Donna Salazar Designs textured paper...it has lots of wonderful fibers. I then inked it with some Ranger distress ink in antique linen. After that, I adhered a large piece of vintage crochet doiley from the Zeus and Zoe store. And some pearls around the perimeter of the ampersand.



I coated some Donna Salazar Designs paper diecut banners with Golden glass bead gel and then added a pendant from the Zeus and Zoe store to complete my ampersand. :)
