You can buy all sorts of quirky Laundry signs nowadays...
But I wanted to hand-craft one to match the blue of my laundry walls...
Plus hand-crafting is so much more fun than walking into a shop
and just buying it!
This is how I made my laundry sign....
First of all I cut an MDF board to the desired size, and then painted it white.
and printed using my home printer,
then cut out the letter shapes...
I roughly hand tore the edges of three squares of
pretty contrasting scrapbook paper.
Glued the squares onto the board first,
then the lettering spaced over the squares.
I did this freehand,
but if you want use a ruler to get perfect spacing.
Using permanent black stamping ink and desired stamps,
stamp an edging design around the board.
Once stamping ink is dry,
use a black sharpie pen to outline the lettering.
When dry, lightly and quickly so as to not smudge the inks,
coat entire board with a sealer.
(I used 'Mod Podge').
And here's the end result!
I'm really happy with how it looks with the blue walls!
