Signs are one of the most recognizable forms of communication around. Whenever I see a new one, I notice it right away, just like I did with this new sign I saw at Walmart. A couple of things really drew my eye...first the colors. I love black with pink (or black with any color really!) so this was a favorite right away. Second, the letters. Now, these kept me looking for a few minutes. I love how they are overlayed but carved out too - with a border in between. My first question - how can I do that on a scrapbook page?
I found a super easy way to create these same type of letters using stickers as shown on "Sunny" - a layout of my youngest daughter playing in the water.
1. Decide on the word you want to do and select some stickers that look good. I used these awsome MM stickers that have several sizes and font types all included. I like to take each sticker and lightly stick it on the edge of my table as I work.
2. Lay the first letter slightly over the second letter - or, if it looks better for the second letter to overlay the first, do it that way - and stick together.
3. Using a small, precise pair of scissors, trim around the overlaying letter. On curved letters, it helps to trim a little bit more, on straight letters, that's all you need to do.
4. Now, move on to the next letter and do the same until the word is finished and ready to stick to your layout or project!
