How Great – Wooden Sign

How Great is Our God Sign

This is quick sign I put together for one of my wife’s friends.  Simple pine board, routed and distressed with a vinyl sticker and clear coat to seal it.  I used my keyhole bit on the back for mounting.

I used the cable strung across my garage, that’s normally for suspending my silk screen exposure lamp, to let this dry overnight without any bugs attaching themselves.

Wayfaring Sign

Wayfaring Sign

I was asked to make a two sided wayfaring sign for a friend’s work which was a new challenge for me.  I decided to do the graphics on foam board, and sandwich it between two pieces of plexiglass in a custom frame.  I also drew the crazy looking duck for them.

Wood Sign

I hammered out quite a few projects I’d been piling up this holiday weekend, this being the most time consuming.  It’s a wooden plaque for some friends of ours who just bought their first home.  Started life as a flat board I picked up at Michael’s, and after some carving, sanding, carving again, paint, detailing, scuffing, detailing again, and clear coat; it ended up looking like this.

My buddy back home sent my the finished picture of a painted sign he did for a relative.  He found inspiration on the internet and I helped with the vinyl.

San Francisco Paper Sign

San Francisco Paper Sign

My newest paper sign is set in San Francisco.  It’s seven separate layers with a little Alcatraz popping through the water.  I know it’s not geographically accurate, but it was the best way I could figure out how to get everything in and still be somewhat close. 

They also convinced me to do another paper tree, which I vowed never to do…

Mountain Papersign

I finally finished my mountain design for my custom papersigns.  This was the first one I cut out with my silhouette cameo, instead of by hand.  It greatly speeds things up, but I wasted quite a few pieces of cardstock and printer toner, getting all the different parts of the process working.  Will be working on a San Francisco styled one next.  For sale in my etsy.com store.

All the design work was done in inkscape, with the texturing for printing done in The GIMP.

Super Crafty Weekend

This is the latest background I’ve been working on for my custom named paper signs. I already have a farm and city one, and they will all eventually land in my etsy store.  This weekend was super crafty since I got this mostly done, and also knocked out two other things.

This was a vinyl wall decal I made for a friends little guy who is all about elevators.  I figured he could put it on the wall inside his door and have a blast.  Will probably be selling these in my etsy store.

UPDATE: I’m selling these on my etsy store here!

This was playing around with some etching paste on a 3″x6″ glass tile.  I really liked how it came out, just not sure what I would do with it.
