I have always used a graphite stick to transfer lettering. In a search for diy signs I saw someone using chalk. Chalk is so much easier. It makes a soft bright line that doesn't get in the way of oil paint pens and easily brushes off when done. Easy Peasy!
Just print out your words, flip them over, rub the back of the paper with chalk, trace, apply paint pen. Brush chalk off or leave it for effect.
Used oil pens because the chalk pen rubs right off and I don't plan on changing these. Wood sign boards & easel purchased at Target .30 cents on clearance.
Blick's 31 Day Watercolor Challenge ends today. I missed a couple of days at the beginning and a few in between. It was fun using watercolors every day. You really learn a lot about the quality of the materials you are using. The tiny free paintbrush that comes with the paint was challenging most days. The 2 shades of green plus a blue and yellow that somehow made the exact same green when mixed???? & a dark red with even darker specks in it??? Proud of all entries based on the time and materials used. The 28th and LAST entry!

Last school year we had "Minion Mondays." Elementary Teachers and students dressed like Minions. Near Halloween this plush Minion was left in my room as a gift. I removed the Halloween items and made him ready for a new year as an Artist
