There is always something new to learn when making signs, something that can be changed or redone. The first two Super Market signs I made awhile ago were ok but the words might have worked better closer together.
To change the signs I 'erased' the word MARKET with a sanding sponge and then repainted the background with the same colour wash originally used. After it was dry MARKET was stencilled closer to Super (see middle sign) and on the 2nd sign MARKET joined Super with EST. 19 added (for established 1900). Sanded the new letters a bit to make them look a worn and sealed with Annie Sloan clear wax. First time changing a stencilled (painted) sign.
Thrifted find, a white on black sign, at a church sale this weekend. It needs a bit of touch up on the black. A Smile by Author unknown. Always looking for signs when thrifting.
Started experimenting with the WordSalad (app) on my iPad. The app is free but very limited. To start chose from text and type in a great many (my choice was collectible type words) and click on START From Text.
To grab the image I took a screen shot, opened the Photos folder, emailed the picture to myself, saved it to iPhoto on my laptop, exported it to my blog folder, edited with PicMonkey and uploaded it to this post. It does make a sign but I have little control (in the free version of the app) to make any changes in colour, font, style.
Tried again and discovered using only one word works too. In the free version colour can not be changed (there are more choices in the 'paid' version). For the picture below I edited in PicMonkey choosing a background of blue and white clouds which changed the lettering colour somewhat and framing with Drop Shadow .
Another thrifted sign was on a wooden case for Stanley Park Beer. Commercial Stencilling, the real deal.
