Sign Up {Part 5 - Final}

So I wanted to save the best for last.
It also happens to be one I finished at 2 in the morning, just hours before it was set to leave.
(thanks to my mom and big sis for being my delivery "mans" for these babies)
Oh the drama!


I did this sign using the same method as the "Yes we're Open" sign.


If you want to learn more about how to do it then go here.


I really love using this method.
It is more time consuming but the results are totally worth it!
In my mind...

I see little girls with bare feet walking to school. Their lunch pails swing carelessly by their sides.
In the barn their father and the dairy hands herd the eager cows into the barn for milking.
An old truck rattles up the dusty lane, full of glass bottles ready to be filled with rich creamy milk.

Sorry, I'm in a hurry.
 No drama with the milk today!

Mooooo.

Remember, if you live in VA and are interested in any of these signs then you can find them at Classic Furniture in Charlottesville, VA!

Have a great weekend!

I love your signs, wish I lived close by. I live in a log home with 30ft. ceilings and have been looking for a huge sign that looks old for one wall. Your work would be perfect. The one featured today is my favorite:)

Miss Jillian, I love the signs. All of them. I want all of them. :) I also love the "In My Mind" stories. You should write a book. I'm serious. Love, T

your talent for signs just blows me away- seriously. you have a knack for making them look so authentic!

You are a genius, Jillian! These signs are truly a work of art! I just LOVE the last one! You make the process look so easy, but I know it's a lot of work. I'm thinking of trying a form of your process (with the layering of newspaper on the canvas) for a painting, to help give it texture. You are a very, very talented woman! Thanks for sharing your work with us!

Just found your blog and I love it! :) I am in love with your signs too! Would you consider shipping one? I realize these might cost a small fortune to ship but I thought I would ask! :)
