Spring sign

luvstocraftMarch 14, 2008

Poured through some old magazines and ran across this pattern for a Spring sign. It has hearts for Valentines, shamrocks for St. Paddy's Day, and a Bunny with decorated eggs for Easter. Just tickled my funny bone, so I had to paint one for me and hang it on my side yard gate. Luvs

Very cute! I love the perfect tiny hearts with the glow on them.

This is so cute, Luvs. It covers all the spring holidays and you painted it really well. The hearts remind me of "Dolly Parton Hearts".

Luvs~ that's a good one! It does cover it all. You did an excellent job on that lettering! That little bunny miss with her egg and shamrock bouquet is so cute! Great shading too. I saw a little online video on how to use a spray bottle to make dots of water, then you use the dots on your brush to do shading and I've been practicing that technique. Does anybody else use that? It works really well for me. Anyway, great job and I also like the color choice for the sign itself. ~Anj

Glad you all enjoyed seeing her. I had never seen a pattern that had Valentine's, St. Pat's and Easter all in one--so I just had to make it! LOL

Bebe, by Dolly Parton hearts, do you mean where you just make two dots side by side then pull to a point? I do those allot, but didn't this time since I had traced these on as part of the pattern.

Anj, I got some new little liners, so it was pretty easy using them to straighten up the lines on my lettering this time. Wahoo! I love lettering on pieces, but NOT if I make it look messy. ;o(
