I decided on a board 18"x24" 1/4" Plywood for this sign. This is the size of The Newsprint I use for drawing out the pattern so that's convenient too. First I decided on a border. This checker board design is easy to do an impressive so I use it frequently. The outside checker board border is the width of a yardstick going longways. The checks are the width of the yardstick going sideways . The inner smaller border is half the width of a hand ruler. I had some fall artifical leaves handy so just used them for a pattern for the leaves. I free handed the words. then taped this drawing on to a piece of carbon paper and traced it on to both sides of the board
Hello, my name is Marlynne Joy Snare (pronounced Marilyn) and I am really excited to be jumping into this new world of "blogging". I call myself a "Folk Artist" and enjoy creating with fabric, paint, wood and all types of natural materials. It will be fun to share some of these inside and outside the house projects with you too!
