I've been wanting to make these two signs for a good long while now. So glad I finally got around to it! They are both made on a 1x12x12 piece of pine.
I used Americana Napa Red paint on both.
The top one of the state of Texas was done as a 2 part stencil. First the chevron pattern was painted in white and gray, and then when that was dry, I did a stencil of the state of Texas in red and hand painted the heart on. If I were to redo it, I think I'd go with a lighter gray so that it wouldn't show through the red. I had 3 coats of red on there, and the color was getting too dark for my liking so I stopped. Anyway, I'm still pretty happy with it. :)
The hey Y'all sign was done using the fonts KG Strawberry Limeade, and a simple Times Bold font. I like it so much. :)
