Ok.. I know... enough with the signs already!..last one.. for now.
This one just tickles me to pieces and reminds me of the think-heavy inspirational advertising that was used in the 1930's. Often ad's were presented as word puzzles or cryptograms or a clever play on words that kept your mind thinking about the ad long after it had passed your eyes.
With that inspiration I used the image from Karen at Graphics Fairy of the nosey lady with the binoc's and then a created a sort of play on a eye-chart with a slightly mixed up bit of inspiration to make you smile once you figure it out. Sort of a pun on a pun if you will.
The board is about 16 inches tall and 10 wide, it was a thrift shop score that previously lived it's life as one of those weird board style place mats which I never understood. I scored all 6 of them for $1.49. They make great painting surfaces after spray primed.
I had intended this to hang in the bathroom and thought I had a good color match going but after I got it in there it turns out that it is way too green/blue so it will have to find another place to hang it.. such is life.
I get so many questions about how to do this.. I think I might have to do a class!
Have you tried your hand at sign making? How did it go?
