Using a glue stick to stick on letters takes a lot of patience. I tried a new way of doing it this time. I added glue stick to the substrate and added the cut out letters using my exacto knife point. It worked really well and much quicker than other times. Now to see if the letters remain. It is much easier to add letters with matte medium but that is a problem when one has glued the background down already with glue stick. The background paper often lifts when matte medium is applied.
