This is the post where I am going to show my social-media ignorance. What is a Tumblr, and how does it work?
A few weeks ago I saw a quotation "pinned" on Pinterest that I really liked. Not only did I like what it said, but I really liked the visual impact of the way it was showcased.
The pin links back to All Things Girly and Beautiful, which is a Tumblr site (?), and that's as far as it goes, so I can't credit the original source.
Anyway- this happens to be the one of the colors of our master bedroom, and I just happen to have a 12x24 piece of plywood just waiting for me to put something on it. I knew I could take this and make it into a cute wall sign. Here's how it turned out!
I painted my plywood white, so the text would eventually be white.
I designed my design on my Silhouette Cameo software (using the font Pea Girly Girls Script, in case you would like to know), then cut the words out in vinyl.
I laid it out how and played with it until I found where I wanted to go, then applied the vinyl to the board.
The red on white is kind of cute! I almost stopped, thinking this would make a great Valentine's day gift or decoration! But, I soldiered on, because I really, really need a cute sign in my bedroom. And, you know, Valentine's Day is kind of a long ways off....
I painted over the entire board with two coats of Hydrangea paint, then let it dry. I peeled up the vinyl, and it looked amazing! I only had to fix two spots where there was a noticeable bleed-through.
Now I have the perfect little sign for my bedroom. I can't wait to hang it up. First I have to clean the wall of some old gunk from a poster we had up about, oh, three years ago, that I never bothered to clean off. I'm awful.
Anyway- this was my first attempt at using vinyl as a stencil, and I LOVE it- so easy, and it comes out so clean. What's your favorite way to stencil?
I'll be sharing this at some of these parties.
Have a great week!
