I created a "Be Grateful" sign. I know everyone and their mama has done them, but this is a reminder to me and for many of us in this day and age, to remember to be grateful. Don't take for granted all you have been blessed with. I thank God for the day, my family, my home, food and health. I am teaching myself and my children to cultivate an attitude of gratefulness.
I have a jar of vinegar and steel wool and I applied a coat of this to the board. I left it outside because this Florida sun will dry this board in 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, I applied a whitewash over the board and let that dry. I dried brushed Glorious Gold "by Americana".
Next I created the words "Be Grateful" by hand and rubbed the back of the paper with pencil. I traced the letters to create an outline on the board. Once I was done, I took out my gold oil based Sharpie and followed the lines.
Here is a close up of the board before I created the lettering.
This lovely sign is going up in my office/homeschool wall gallery so I can always remember to "Be Grateful".
Thank you for being here and I love to hear from you, so leave me a comment.
