Vintage Sign

This week I decided to try a technique I saw on Pinterest.  I repinned it to my DIY board knowing I'd want to give it a try sometime.

I bought some sticker letters and placed them on a piece of wooden slat that I had already painted with white crackle paint.  I brushed on some umber glaze and thought I'd leave it at that.  When I pulled off one of the letters to check, I didn't get the result I was looking for. So, I took out my blue acrylic paint and brushed that on with a sponge brush.  I wiped a paper towel across it to remove some of the paint.  Let it dry and it was just what I had hoped for!  Here are some photos of my process.  This was fun and easy, I'll be doing more of these.
