Art Studio : Half Painted Alpha



Hello everyone! Caroli here, and today I want to show you this simple trick in order to create interesting titles for your projects.

I’ve seen so many half colored alphas in the market these days, they are so pretty and give a fresh and modern look to any project, but sometimes they don’t come in the specific color I need, so I thought it would be good to make some letters myself in the color and font I need.

For this you will only need some thin cardboard (I used 280 grs. thick white cardboard), an alpha die, diecuting machine and paint of the color you prefer.


The first thing we’ll need to do is cutting the letters uwing the diecut machine and alpha die. I used this metallic die by MFT and my Cuttlebug for this purpose.  Once you have the letter ready you just need to paint the lower part of them, yes, as simple as that! 🙂

This is how my letter came out, super simple and awesome result, isn’t it?!


I used my letters to make this simple layout, love the half painted look and how I got to use a paint color that perfectly fits the palette of my project.


Here are some closeups of the layout, I love the result! 🙂
