Your signature style.
Painting custom signs is a large part of my work.
Here is an example of a House Number Sign
that you might like to make too.
I used the "Dip and Drag" paint technique.
Ha, sounds so complicated...it's just cardstock
dipped in paint and scraped onto surface.
You can read more about that Here.
Then you can make a print of your number
and chalk the back surface
using your window as a light box.
Transfer onto board from the front
with a pen or pencil.
You can see the light outline here.
Base paint white.
Shade a little bit with camel.
Drop shadow black with a liner brush
on right sides and bottoms of numbers.
Here are some other personalized Lake Signs:

I applied it in squares with a variety of
horizontal and vertical pull.
Here's a close up of the layered paint:
Isn't that the best thing about being a DIY'er!
We can make it our own.
Just the way we like it.
What a fun and artful journey.
So glad to share it with you friends!
