Sunshiine Sign

This is my project for today.  I hope since the weather is about to warm up I will be motivated to work on a few new projects.  This is a piece I was asked to do to hang over a little girls daybed.  I had some reclaimed flooring and I attached three of the pieces together and painted a base coat in an off-white.  I painted both front and back.  After it had dried for a few days, I cut out the letters out of vinyl on my Sizzix Eclipse.  It takes a little measuring to get the spacing just right.  The sign was too big to get more than one word per page.  I had to divide Sunshine into two pages.  I then painted a couple of coats with different colors.  It doesn't show up very well in the photo, but there are two colors used.  I then distressed it so you could see both colors and the wood in some places.  I then waxed it.  I will update with a photo in it's new home when I can get one.  Hope it is a sunny day wherever you are.
