I haven't posted since June 28th? Really??? Wow! I really suck don't I????
Any-hoo...I want to share with you guys a sign that I did for my bff's Dad recently. When my friend, Shawn asked me to do a baseball diamond sign for her Dad, I knew that I was up for the challenge!
Shawn's Dad is a baseball memorabilia dealer and a HUGE NY Yankee fan!
Here's what I came up with...
I started with a 10"x10" piece of pine. I sanded is nice and smooth and gave it a few coats of Rustoleum 2x spray paint in Navy blue. I really like to use this spray paint in a satin finish. For some reason, the HD only had it in a Gloss finish. Oh well...adapt and overcome right???
I searched net for a NY symbol like the one used for the Yankees. I had to import it, re-size it, and cut it using my old Craft Robo software, because for some reason I can't cut some things using my Silhouette software. Wierd right? Anyone know what's up with that???
I asked (ok begged) Price Charming to help me with this next step...hee hee! I needed to cut straight lines and cut the bases out of my white vinyl. I just don't have the patience for straight lines...I don't know what that's all about!
Here's my cutie patootie hard at work...
Gotta love that man!
Lastly, I took some silver vinyl and cut out "New York Yankees" using a script font that looked like the one they use in the real logo.
So what do you think?
