She asked for a blue/grey background with white lettering:






Jennifer Marie T.

Thank you to everyone who entered the raffle, I hope Jennifer gets her build on with all the inspiring projects in Ana's book.


Here's how to make the scripture sign:

1. Cut plywood to size (this sign is 41"l x 11"h).
Paint background color, I used Benjamin Moore ocean city blue.


2. Print letters to fit and tape in place on wood.
I used Universal Accreditation font at 300 point, condensed 3 point.


3. Using a ballpoint pen trace outline of printed letters leaving an indent in the wood:


4. Paint on and inside the indent:


5. To give definition and depth add a dark grey shadow:


6. Distress edges, apply Minwax golden oak stain.
Seal with clear satin poly.

7. Add two sawtooth hangers at equal ends on back:
