Every year, I do one craft bazaar and every year, I wonder why I do it.
I don't have one specific thing or group of things to sell. I just bring things that I like at the time. In the preparation for the bazaar, I am crazy busy...like sweat shop busy...making a few things to bring.
I saw a subway art sign with the words to "You Are My Sunshine" printed on it in a local shop and loved it. Mostly because I sang that song to each of my babes and it holds a special place in my heart.
So here is my version.
I live in a sort of industrial area with lots of factories and warehouses. Several of them have HUGE free boxes out front with lots of free wood. Usually it's hit or miss, but I found this piece a few weeks ago and thought it would be perfect for this project.
I also scored with some free paint too. I actually love this color (sort of a grey blue) from Sherwin Williams. Don't know the exact color but I sort of want to paint everything I own this shade.
I put two coats of it on the board and waited for it to dry.
Then I used my silhouette machine and cut out some vinyl letters. I used them like a stencil and painted over the whole thing with a muted white color (I mixed in some of the grey and added some water too).
Once I peeled up the letters, this is what I ended up with.
