Silhouette - Lavender Tub Sign
Is there anything funner for a crafter than a cutting machine? I got a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas a couple of years ago, and honestly - I still feel giddy every time I get it out to play. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!
Of course, one of the coolest projects a blogger would want to make is a sign with the name of their blog.
I found this really awesome frame on Craigslist for cheap. I had something else in mind for it, but the more I looked at it, the more I knew this had to be my Lavender Tub sign.
I painted the frame with ASCP in Antique White. Then I mixed up some homemade plaster paint to match AS's Antionette, and painted over the poster.
To paint the letters on the sign, I cut a stencil out of cardstock using my Silhouette, and laid the stencil on the sign - holding it down with rocks.......yep, we're that technical around here. Using Krylon's Champagne Nouveau Metallic spray paint, I painted the letters - being careful to spray straight on and not at an angle.
I did have a little paint overspray under the stencil, but I really like the softer look of the letters. Yay for imperfection!
I'd like to have a Lavender Tub booth some time, but for now - I think it adds a nice touch to my Lavender Tub bathroom. (The light from the window shining on the metallic paint looks a little strange in this pic, but I wanted share this view. The detail on the frame is so pretty.)
What cutting machine projects have you made?
I'm ready to play some more!
