Yup, I get on "kicks". For awhile it was a chalkboard kick, then pillow kick, then a Mountain Dew kick, and now I'm on a sign kick. Well, mainly because they seem to make me the most money these days. And since we're talking about kicks, it just makes me crack up remembering this really frustrating time during a family vacation once years ago when everyone was hot and miserable and we were lost and my dad hollers "I'm as frustrated as a one legged man in a butt kicking contest!" and we all busted up laughing so hard we couldn't remember why were all so mad! Anyways, last week I showed you the signs I made on some old cupboard doors I picked up on the curb. This week, my signs are on old barn wood and siding scraps.
This is the one from a scrap of siding from my parent's cabin they built. It's one of my favorites to use for sign making. I free handed the tree in gray and then used stencils for the quote.
This was one of the simplest ones I've ever made and yet one of my all time favorites so far! When I was painting my shutters yellow, I still had a little on my brush that I didn't want to wash out. I grabbed a near by old piece of wood and "cleaned" my brush out on it. Then I just stenciled on my letters and the bird!
