How about a fun and graphic
message on wall art in your home -
I made this sign out of fence boards.
You could use pallet boards too.
These boards are 5 1/2" wide and 33 1/2" long.
Connecting 4 together makes the finished size
21 1/2" x 33 1/2".
I drilled small holes in the two back boards
so the wood does not split when attaching the 1" screws.
Give the entire piece a wash of
watered down brown and raw sienna mixed.
Using folded cardstock, drag black semi-gloss paint
(or whatever finish you like)
across the boards leaving some of the base
to show through.
I designed my lay-out in Photoshop
using Arial black font.
So that I don't waste so much black ink,
I bucket paint the letters gray.
I outline the letters by right clicking the layer,
choosing blending options,
and checking outer shadow and inner shadow.
Then fill with white.
Now there is just an outline.
Chalk Transfer letters.
Paint letters white or off white with a flat brush.
I didn't sand here, but you could to add more of a worn look.
Hangers and picture wire on back.
Now you've got a stand out piece of typography art.
can be an expression in art
for a wall in your home.
"There's nothing you can do that can't be done
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung...
Nothing you can make that can't be made...
I would like to try some other colors too.
If YOU do, show me what you come up with.
I can't really hang this in my temporary apartment,
but can't wait to put a nail in the wall in my new home!
I'll show you when I do this fall.
We are building and I am so excited to be in our home.
Happy Painting and Making a Home,
