Except I knew my BFF would be in love with it too, and if she lived any closer- she'd probably steal it!
So, having come off of the success of my last sign, I snapped a pic of this one, returned it, and got cracking on TWO of my own! (One for me, one for the BFF!)
I used the same methods as my last sign, using my Silhouette for the letters, but freehanded the flipflops. I probably could've downloaded a flip flop, but I'm trying my hand at some freehanding (haha) so that I can eventually make signs to sell. All that legal mumbo jumbo on the Silhouette site says you can't use their downloads to sell but only to make things for personal use (or to give away!) See, some of us do read that stuff!!
I'd already primed the board and drilled holes to hang when I made the last sign, so I got started painting it with a great teal color (very similar to the original!). I've been having fantastic luck at buying these $.50 little things of oops paint at Home Depot!
I used the pencil transfer method to get the flip flop outline on the sign- instead of risking messing it up while freehanding on the board. I drew the flip flops, heavily traced it on the other side, and then put the heavily traced side down, and scribbled over the other side, which transfers the heavy line to the board! I even used the same paper again by just tracing a little bit more and scribbling again on the other board!
Linking up at some of these parties!
