The first sign I made using an old mirror frame which is amazingly ornate and which I painted Robins egg blue...
then I looked on pinterest for some ideas using the chalk writing and of course there is a bunch to choose from.
I bought one of those bistro markers - that are chalk in a pen (easier to write with)
and took bits and parts from various signs I saw and added them to my sign
Here is the whole sign - wanted you to get an idea of the whole thing even with that snarky glare
here is a close up of the writing. I am not a pro by any means and quite frankly its not as clean and wonderful as those on line but I can say that I am quite pleased with the way it turned out.
The Bistro chalk marker I used was a chiseled tip and quite thick and made for writing in small spaces a bit hard
Like I said I took different parts from various images I found...
some made sense and some just filled spaces. But I LIKE it A lot.
The 2nd chalk sign I made came from using a vintage doll crib.
This is one side and the other side was blank (no tiger)
so I painted it with chalkboard paint and added a cute FALL banner
and this time using an actual stick of chalk made this sign for my booth tomorrow.
I love it and well consider it my contribution to upcycling. Viva our environment.
Ok. so I hope these make a splash tomorrow at my show. Wish me luck.
Linking up to the parties in my link above.
Have a great weekend folks.
