Only 11 Days Until....

My first art show of the season.  I'm so excited.  I'll be at the Sun Prairie Taste of the Arts Fair.  This is the first year I'm doing this show, so it's exciting. 

Then I have my second show the weekend right after that.  Crazy.

I have decided to apply for six shows this year.  That's twice as many as I did last year.  But I think I'm ready for this. 

I finished my new sign over the weekend.  I'm really happy with it.  I have been trying to find really fun stencils and have not been able to, so I just decided to make my own.  It was a little bit of work cutting them all out, but they turned out so well, it was worth it. 

I painted the whole sign on one of my furlough day, it was a perfect project for that day.  Then I dropped my brushes right on the sign.  I got blue paint everywhere.  Of course, why wouldn't I ruin the sign after I spent all that time working on it.  So last weekend I went out and bought some pink and blue dye and a spray bottle.  I sprayed a layer of each color of dye on the sign to hide the spots of blue paint.  And low and behold it worked great.  Now the sign has a fun spatter pattern on it.  I'm so happy with it. 

Now I just need to sew those pesky table cloths.

What a great attitude you had by turning in a mistake into a great looking sign! I need to learn to do that more with the things I make. I just get frustrated and throw them away. Next time I'll try to think of what I can do to turn it around into something productive. Thanks!
