Hunger Games Love Quote Sign in Barnwood

I have fallen for the Hunger Games.  I have so far devoured the first and second book.  I will be heading to the movie soon.  I saw a sign on Lolly Jane and fell in love with the quote.  But I had to put my own spin on it…of course.  So I make my Hunger Games love quote sign in barnwood.  I just want to spend every possible minute of the rest of my life with you…

Don’t you just LOVE that quote!  Yes even if you are not a Hunger Games fan….the quote is beyond amazing!  Hubby helped me piece together two pieces of barnwood scraps…

I cut vinyl using my Silhouette.  I used rules to lay it out straight on the sign.

After the letters were laid out, I went over each one making sure it was firmly down on the wood.

I wanted a rustic, worn look.  So I knew I would be using a dry brush technique.  So I didn’t do anything else to my letters.  Otherwise, you may want to add some mod podge around them to ensure that paint does not sneak under.

Dry brush technique you ask.  Well get the very very minimum amount on your brush and then tap some off.  This is my brush BEFORE I start painting.  You don’t see ANY globs of paint.

Then I would start away from the letters.  When doing the letters I would start in the middle and go out.

I actually went over each letter twice.  Both VERY VERY light coats.  This is after the second….

Then came the moment of truth.  I started peeling my letters back very carefully.  It almost took my breath away….I loved it immediately.

I let the letters and words go over the seam in the middle.  Frankly, I love the seam too!
