Nothing extravagant, by any means, because I wanted something simple to practice with.
I messed up a little. you will see when you look at it.
First I downloaded the design from the Silhouette Online Studio and cut it out. The first word came out too small for what I was looking for though. I should have just made my own since it was so simple!
Several days ago, I sanded and painted my pallet wood in preparation of this project.
After making this simple cut, I tried to make the first word bigger to fit the pallet wood, and somehow managed to not get my vinyl lined up correctly, and I didn't catch it until after I cut that word again, so the top of the G is cut off :( I also did not use the transfer paper, thinking it was just three simple words, how can I go wrong? Needless to say they are not lined up correctly! But it is what it is, and it will get better.
I had also tried my hand earlier at cutting out a stencil for stars and used that to make my flag painted on canvas. As you can see these two projects are sitting on a stand that I painted, but oh my, does it ever look sad!
Here is a picture of my sad painting job. I just don't like the bright blue drawers against the burgundy, so it is getting something else later this afternoon.
So there ya have it...the good ...is that I tried; the bad...is I cut off the top of the G and the ugly...the stand.
