Happy Easter Friends and Two New Signs

Easter, Spring and Eggs go well together this week.
I cleared off a bit of counter space and had some fun stencilling.

First I made a SPRING sign.

This was the sequence. I under-painted the board with several chalk-clay colours and topped it with Simply White.

Planned my sign on paper (used ABC 3 inch letters) and used that as a guide for stencilling SPRING on the board.

I took my SPRING sign over to my booth.

Next up was a Fresh Eggs 25¢ sign.

Below is the finished Fresh Eggs sign with Pysanka eggs on a mirrored tray.

This is the sequence I used for making the Fresh Eggs 25¢ sign. 

Row 1:  Old Bamboo cutting board with a thin coat of Simply White, plus a 2 inch ABC stencil, planned on paper.

Row 2: Taped the bottom edge space for each word and the beginning/end of each word. Used the Paper Guide for reference. Started stencilling each letter.

Row 3: Removed tape as needed. Finished sign waxed.

Fresh Eggs sign in my booth.

Happy Easter
