Kennedy has been saying she wants her room to be more of a horsey room, so I thought I'd add a little bit of horseyness by making a sign for her closet. It's all looking pretty shiny and new in there, so I thought it could use a little rusticness too.
Out to the wood pile I went!
I found a few good candidates, but I thought this one would work best in the closet. Isn't she a beaut?
I love these notches in the top.
And this green mossy edge! You won't be able to see this, but I'll know it's there. Oh, I'll know.
I often use foam stamps for lettering on my signs, but I usually use paint applied to the stamp with a brush for a more hand-painted look.
This time I just stamped right into a regular old black ink pad, making sure to get a little ink on the sides of the stamp. I wanted it to really look "stamped" just to see how it would turn out.
Turns out I like it!
I finished it off with a very hand-painted looking arrow. Notice the squiglyness of it. That was totally intentional too... um, yeah!
Hope everyone had a great May Day!
