I made up a couple of things to go into my little madeit shop... Phone cozies, totes and some little zip bags....
Its getting rather chilly in this shabby old cottage,,, Pip insists on having his little bed warmed ;)
I have dragged out the old draft stoppers and made little covers to pretty them up ( will be showing you how I did that in a later post, why have boring looking door snakes when you can chic them up...stay tuned for that one )
The Girls are laying well and Humphrey is a little darling trying to sit on the eggs when the girls get off.
What you will need..
*Soft timber ( as we are going to press in to dent it,,, Oh and in the length and width you would like your finished sign) (( I used off cuts of red ceder as it is nice and soft))
*Printed out words, and pictures.
* a ball point pen
* small this paint brush
* paint of desired colours.
* sand paper
I didn't really take any good photos of before or even the process, so I will explain the best I can with the pics I did take..
First of all I went into word on my computer.. I played around with fonts and sizes and then printed out my words.... I gave my signs a base coat of paint...
This one is of my little Candy Rose Creations Label,,, as you can see I didn't worry about getting it perfect because I am going to layer and rub back ;)
..Just paint in the lines.. ( I like the way the indents make the words pop out a little too)
(I am having a little obsession with France I am thinking)
Here is one all finished, I have layered the french powder blue over the white and went over the writing again and then sanded,,, a little spray over with clear, Not to shabby I would say ;)
Until next adventure
