Lately I have been in a painting signs kind of mood.
I started with two boards from Horror Monster, my beloved stash.
Dug out the Bermuda Sand paint.
(Really if anyone walked into my house the first thing she would say is "How much?" There is that much stuff in the living room!)
These two boards have had many reincarnations.
Yes, the colors are rather fab, but I going white.
You can see I relented and let some of the other layers of paint show through.
Just brushed on a thin coat.
There's Willie hanging his head - he despises having his photo taken, but insists on being in the background.
Growing up I used to love going to the superette - loved the name of the tiny grocery store.
So I made up South Main Superette for my sign.
I did not have the right size stencils for the lettering.
Printed out the letters.
Taped them to the boards.
Used old fashion carbon paper.
I pick up every box I can find at estate sales.
The top board shows the letters in black and red.
The bottom shows after highlighting and shadowing the letters.
A close up.
Then off they went (after a couple of coats of varnish) to Booth W-10.
Yesterday I spent several hours with a new group of signs.
Will show you on Sunday.
Painted some items for the Gathering, tagged some items for the Gathering, and waxed some items for the Gathering.
It seems to be all about the Gathering - I have two weeks left to prepare.
People are still enjoying the blog hop from last Friday.
Long lists are being made - what will you be looking for?
You can go HERE for the list of bloggers who participated with links to their posts.
Or you can go see Eddie of Eddie-torial Comments - he is on a roll with list after list.
