A Is For Apple
After covering this ornate "a" with resin, I was reminded of children's alphabet books. The first one is always "A Is For Apple". I made a collage background using an apple pattern cut from freezer paper for a resist. To attach the "a", I cut a square from the collage and hammered it on with grommets in the corners.
To frame the piece, I wrote apple sayings all around the edges. When held to the light, you can see through the resin "a".
