It’s Tuesday and I have yet another sign for ya. My daughter is very into “Paris” right now, so I wanted to make a fun Paris sign for her room. I didn’t say anything to her and she didn’t see me making it, I just put it in her room to surprise her. She was very excited when she spotted it.
I tried a new technique with this sign that I am sure I will be using again. I printed the saying out in reverse onto printer paper using a laser printer. I then used a heat transfer tool to transfer the image. It was a bit scary at first because I wasn’t at all sure of what I was doing. I burnt the edge in the upper right corner, if you look closely you can see the little brown spot. I actually liked the old, vintage look it gave it, but I don’t think I was supposed to do that. :) The paper stuck like crazy and I was about to scrap the whole idea, but then I sprayed it with water and rubbed the paper off and it was perfect. I really loved that it also peeled a little of the paint away and left it looking distressed. I will definitely be trying to perfect this technique.
To make this I used the fonts Emily’s Candy and Feel Script. The swirly images are from Jodie Lee’s Vintage Brush Club 3.
I have been on an organizing frenzy the last few days. I have so many projects I want to get finished before the summer comes to a close. I need to get the school room updated and reorganized, but first things first, I am working on my craft room. My craft room and the school room are side by side, so they usually get organized together. I love that they flow into each other and I can craft while my kids do their schoolwork.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
