My cute turkey sign

luvstocraftAugust 15, 2008

Got the other side of my sign finished yesterday but needed to get the pic taken of it. Finally remembered to do that today so I can post it. It's taken from a design by Karen Wisner in the October 2008 issue of Painting magazine.

I was going to put a screw eye hook in the top, but Anj mentioned a hole at the top and I think that would work better. I'll just put an orange ribbon through it and can use it for either side. Just click on the pic for a larger view.

You did a tremendous job on both those signs! And I especially like the turkey. My family loves Thanksgiving better than Christmas-usually no matter where they are , they come home on Thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing-You do Great Work!!

Where did my post go???? I'm getting worse and worse with losing my posts. Must be getting in too big of a hurry and pushing the wrong button or something.

This little pattern was perfect for the back of your halloween sign. Love how you did the tail feathers and your little vine around the edge is perfect (mine always come out too thick...need to practice a lighter touch). Your lettering is great and I like how you used the dots to give the flowers and tail feathers some dimention. It's a keeper!

Paintgirl~ I personally like Thanksgiving better cause it's a little more laid back than the Christmas hustle and bustle plus you still get all the good food!

I don't know what "both" there is as I'm only seeing one, but it's cute as can be. You did a great job. Now, where do you hang that?

Oceanna, the back side of this sign is a Halloween design. It's on one of the posts here too. Thanks for your nice comment. I think it will be hung on my lamppost out in the front yard. Luvs

Your turkey turned out as cute as your halloween side. What a nice project.
