Create a Sign From Children's Art Work

When we noticed this beautiful sentiment made by a friend's daughter hanging in her kitchen, an idea was born!

Create a Sign From Children's Art Work
The original paper sign has been hanging in their kitchen for years and as you can imagine it is difficult to keep a paper note forever.  

My daughter Kasey and I set out to create a sign for the family that would replicate their paper sign permanently.

Kasey began by making a copy of the original artwork and turned it into a Silhouette file that could be sized in my Silhouette software.

Kasey sent me the file and I created a vinyl stencil. The handwriting is an exact replica of the little girl's writing.

I applied the stencil to a piece of grey painted wood, then used black paint to stencil the design.

I sanded and distressed the edges then used an antiquing medium to stain the sign. When it was dry I sprayed the sign with a sealer.

This family now has a sign written in their daughter's handwriting to enjoy for years to come.
