I have seen a lot of inspirational signs and pictures (mostly on Pinterest). When Easter rolled around I was still wanting some of those. So . . . I made myself one.
I went to the garage and picked out a scrap of wood. Lucky for me I keep that stuff around! Then I had my two of best helpers sit at the table and paint a couple of old cans. Art for them, kept them busy for me.
I painted the whole board white but not real thick, leaving spots not painted.
Then I went over the white with some light blue (Eastery) and left white showing.
I don't have a super artistic hand so I trace things whenever I can. I pulled a cross off the wall and traced it. Then I just lightly painted the markings with black and white swirled together. After the that dried I went over it with more blue, so you could see it but it wasn't bam in your face.
So I thought I took a lot of pics but can't seem to find them. I mostly used stencils. But the larger words I free handed. I don't always have the right size.
