Silhouette Made Simple - Final Day

We're coming to the end of our series on the Silhouette.  If you missed it, you can go back to Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3....and enter the giveaway.  There will definitely be more Silhouette projects in the future, but today is the last day of our series and hopefully after watching all the videos you feel like a Silhouette expert.

Today we're making this sign and I'm showing you a round up of all the things I've made in the past with my Silhouette.

Alright.  Let's talk about this sign.  It was very much inspired by THIS art I pinned a while back.  I loved the vintage fonts and the Einstein quote as well.

The sign is actually the top of a little Ikea table that I found in the "as is" section for less than $2.  I bought it a while back, thinking it would be the perfect, cheap canvas.  Even if you purchased the little table there at full price it would only be $10.  They come in lots of colors too.  I want to buy a green one and add white vinyl.

You could just add vinyl, but I used my vinyl as a stencil.  I sprayed painted the whole thing and then peeled the vinyl off.  The Ikea table was really slick, so the paint didn't adhere as well which meant the stencil pulled off part of the paint.  I didn't mind since I was going for a real worn, vintage look.  If you don't like that look that just add vinyl and call it good.

Okay, here's the full process.

Here are a lot of other projects I've used my Silhouette for.

Lastly, if you can visit the Silhouette blog for daily inspiration.  They make beautiful things there.  You won't be disappointed.

We'll announce the winner of the Silhouette Cameo tomorrow morning!  Thanks for dropping in.  (Don't for get to check back later for my last Silhouette project.  I'm really excited about it.)
