Weathered Spring Sign

I started off with a 7x9 inch piece of wood I found in the scrap bin at Home Depot.

I painted it Americana Baby Blue.

Then I watered down some white paint and brushed that over the top.

I used the negative of some SPRING vinyl I ordered from Utah Vinyl and put that on my board.

Then I painted the lettering white.

Carefully removed the vinyl once the paint had dried.

I gave it a good sanding - everywhere.

Added a bit of stain to the whole thing.

Then tied on some ivory ribbon.

I love how it turned out.  Perfectly weathered.  Now it's sitting pretty on my mantel, which I will show you tomorrow.  

We had a perfect spring day playing in the sun at the park. Now for baths to get all that sand out of the boys' hair.
