Are you a fan of motivational wall art? We all have days where we need some positive reminders and a wood sign like this one is a great one!
I started by painting a 12 inch by 12 inch piece of wood and painting it black. Then I did a streaky coat of white to give it an aged look.
When it was mostly dry, I cut the design on Stencil Material and applied the banners to my sign.
Then I used a wet paint brush and bright colors to get a bit of a watercolor effect. I let it dry and then used a black paint marker to trace the woods and banners, since I was pretty sure the watery paint may not have stenciled perfectly. When I peeled up the stencil material, it pulled up a bit of the white paint (which is why I said “mostly dry” in the previous step, I was hoping to get this effect). It adds to the vintage-y style I love.
And that’s it! A fun, bright, happy and artsy sign to help keep you inspired!
