I thought I'd show you how to make a lettered sign.
It's also the same method I used for The Raven book cover shown here. Here's what I started with. I think it's a panel from an old door. It's got that just right chippy texture.
I used sewing tracing paper and placed the image on the board where I wanted it. I traced over the outline of the letters with a pencil to transfer the letters.
Next I used black sharpie, because I have better control than with a paint brush, and outlined each letter.
Then color in the letters.
I lightly sanded to age the letters and it also hides any weird edges.
And there you have it. Ready to hang.
I 've added some new zipper bags to my Etsy Shop. These are made out of vintage sheets, except for a few made of cute Riley Blake fabrics. This time I used yo-yo's. Love these! I love all the mix of colors and the softness.
