I saw the sign
Life is demanding, without understanding
Who’s singing now? You know you are. Ace of Base was my first CD…3rd grade.
Okay, anyway, this post is about THIS SIGN. Not the one Ace of Base saw.
THIS is my first hand painted sign. And I’m oh-so-proud of myself.
I put a couple coats of primer on a board I found by Bart’s shop. Waited a few days thinking I’d stencil some elaborate, special font off my computer, and then saw that Funky Junk’s Saturday Night Special was garden junk, so I just wung it. (You know, the past tense of wing it.)
I just drew a couple of lines, used a paint pen, and freehanded it.
It was so beautiful. I was so proud. And then I stepped back and realized I spelled soles RIGHT – as in SOULS. That was NOT going to work!
So I put about 14 coats of primer over the last 3 letters, and blowdried it so I could still get the post up in time for SNS, and then repainted. If you look carefully, you can see the original spelling, and how it’s brighter white in that corner, but none of you all are allowed to look closely. So quit looking! And share your favorite failed craft, just to make me feel better, please?
