Continuing this week to show you signs I've made.....
Here are a couple Dr. Seuss signs I made. One was for a friend and another I made using the same stencil (I made using this method.) to make another one.
It’s sort of weird to say I made this for a friend, because I actually made it for the child of a one of the first kids I ever babysat for! But, yes, she is now my friend! I was pretty young so she’s only about 12 or so years younger than me!
Anyways, she loved this saying and wanted it for her son’s nursery. I found a great Dr. Seuss font on fontspace.com. This is where I get most of my fonts, especially since you can limit your searches to only commercial-use free fonts- ones that are okay to use on things you sell. I try to limit myself to those whether I’m making something to sell or not because I know I’ll forget which ones aren’t ok after I’d installed them!
I adore how the distressing came out on this one! Just enough, not too much, not too little! Some across the letters and around the edges! I wish I had a better, closer view to show you, but I can’t even crop it to show you because this was taken before I got my DSLR!
And this one looks like it’s the exact opposite, but it’s actually just a white background with the vinyl letters stuck on. I took them right off of the first sign and put them on this board so that I can make another. Although I think it actually looks good just like this!
