Fall Lettering on painted wood

It’s been awhile since I have blogged, but I plan to share more of my process here on the blog. I wanted to share a great lettering project I did as favors for my daughters’ birthday party. At Target, I picked up these oval wood signs already painted with a blue background and glitter edging.

I’ll share my process with you below.

I took a picture of the oval with my iPad Pro and did a rough draft of my lettering.

Then, I used my water soluble pencil to rough the lettering onto the oval. These pencils are so great, I use them for fabric sewing, but they are perfect for lettering a draft. They easily wipe off with a damp cloth if you need to rearrange your lettering.

And lastly, I lettered the phrase with my craft smart multi surface oil-based gold paint pen. I got mine at Michaels. 


I hope you have enjoyed this post, it was a fun process!

happy Valentine’s Day bird printable

I hope everyone has a lovely Valentine’s Day. Today I was making a couple of Valentine’s and I thought I would post the one I made for my little girl. It’s a sweet Valentine heart with a little colorful bird. For my daughter’s version I added her name on the bird’s wing.



I hope you enjoy, feel free to download the Valentine’s day card for your special one. Download pink card here and Download blue card here

wings: IF

Here’s an illustration for Illustration Friday’s theme Wings. My illustration only  has one wing, but it will do for this week! I drew this last year before my little girl was born. For her woodland themed room, I framed vintage illustrations of different types of birds. This is an illustration of a Barn Owl that I added to her little collection.




This illo is part of a bigger project that I am working on, but I couldn’t help but enter it for this week’s Illustration Friday theme. The theme this week is Edge. This little owl has her friends around as she takes a big leap off the edge of the branch.
