Vertical Type Sports Sign

Pin It
So much to do so little time.  Oh how I wish there were more hours in a day!  Yesterday my back wrenched up again so I spent the day in a whole lotta pain!  But, I had things to do, and cannot stand to be stuck in a chair or bed all day.  So in 15 minute incraments I worked on a vertical sign idea I've had in my head for a bit.   For me, girly ideas are quite easy to come by so when I get some inspiration to share with the boys in my life...I go with it before I lose it!

Basketball season here is winding down soon.  I wanted to come up with something for Austin to give to his coach.  I color blocked a vertical strip of thin wood with 'boy' colors.  Then I proceeded to antique, distress, and crackle the crapola out of it.  I sketched out some lettering from a few different fonts to spell the word 'coach'.  The O being the focus of the piece because it is made with a painted basketball - offset and going out of it's frame.

loVE it!

I'll be back shortly with a tutorial for you, for those of you who may want to give it a try for yourself.  For the rest of you, just letting you know that some vertical signs will be listed in my etsy shop soon!
