All those crafty signs out in the blogosphere are so cute that I decided to make a few of my own. Now these may not be as fancy and beautiful as the signs that look like they're from an old country store, but they are current!
I cut out a couple of letters from a blank stencil form and it was such a pain that only a few letters actually made the cut (HA!) Turns out they make up quite a few letters with a curve and a straight edge, so they're perfect for lazy old me.
I traced the letters out using an extra fine paint pen and a ruler to make sure my edges were really straight. These are on 4x6 canvas artist boards, painted in a few base colors. I painted the letters using acrylic paints, mixed with a glossy medium, then highlighted each letter with a paint pen in a coordinating color.
I had another sign - 'LOL'- that was totally messed up and got painted over to start again. There are a few more sayings that will get painted soon as this whole project is quick and easy!
Don't you just love a quick and easy and fun project?
