The Stars at Night are Big and Bright....

 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. :)
