I now know why adult colouring books are so popular! These little signs are very similar and are relaxing and fun to do.
white graphite paper (transfer paper)
board painted black with Cottage Paint Black
Jelly Roll white pen
white charcoal pencil
white pencil crayon
ball-point pen to trace on the design
printed design sized to fit the board
Q-tip for boo-boos
Paint your board with one or two coats of Black Cottage Paint. Sand lightly. Tape your pattern to the wood piece. Place the white graphite paper under your design, white side down and trace all the lines lightly with a pen.
Outline all the main lines with the Jelly Roll white pen.
Fill in the leaves, berries and letters with either the white charcoal pencil or the white pencil crayon. The white charcoal pencil creates a brighter white than the pencil crayon, so in more complicated designs, I like to them both so that some areas are brighter and more white and some are lighter and more ‘grey’.
