I have been in a SIGN mood!



I have been feeling the urge lately to make signs.  I am not sure why, but I am going with it.  I think it might be because I only have short times in my day lately to do anything artistic. I have lots of wood from an old fence and signs are my things right now.  
Before:
I painted the boards with both chalk and milk paint and after they dried I started to put the words on them.  I have a set of foam stamps of the alphabet, so I painted each letter and stamped in on the board.  Since the boards are rough I do have to go back and hand paint the gaps with a small artist bush. 


Miss Mustard Seed's Tricycle Red=LOVE



Old fence wood with hemp oil
( it started the same as the wood in the background)

I used many layers on this sign



My custom vintage green chalk paint


I outlined the letters in black Sharpie! 
I am having fun making signs and experimenting with colors and letters.
