I've moved, guys.
My life journey
has something new for me.
Just so you know
I will always be "lake girl" at heart.
I am excited for my new home and town too.
I'm not sure where that home will be exactly.
We are living in an apartment now.
Of course I had to turn it into a paint studio!
And to make me feel at home,
I decided to make a welcome sign for my door.
And of course I'm going to share the details with you!
You might want one for your door.
I used a 16" x 20" canvas panel.
I'm going for a chalkboard look.
Base paint with a mix of black and off white.
Here is a video to show the brush motion.
Then I designed the layout in photoshop.
To arch the letters for the name in the ribbon
click on this arch button after you write the text.
Here is the template for your use:
Chalk the outline of letters on the back side of paper.
Transfer the chalk with pen pressure from the front.
Detail with white paint and a liner brush.
Add grommets and ribbon.
Black chalkboard or grey - both are fun!
These door hanger welcome signs
are good for any season.
Thanks for reading my blog!
