I am a huge fan of Miss Mustard Seed Creations blog. I love everything she does and try many of her tutorials. I tried my hand at my first sign. I had seen this quote at a store called The Embellished Home in North Scottsdale. This place is full of so many treasures and wonderful ideas! (Unfortunately it is very expensive!).
I don't have the steadiest hand when it comes to painting things small so I used the trick of pencil on the back of the picture and transferring it by tracing it. I got the crown image from The Graphics Fairy. I got the old sign from the Goodwill for $1. I think it turned out pretty good. The only thing I'm struggling with is the streaks in my stain that I put over it to age it. I'm not sure why it didn't take as strong in certain areas. Oh well, not bad for my first effort:) Head over to Mustard Seed Creations for the tutorial...it was a lot of fun!
