I made a sign for my space at the Fancy Flea and here's the easy tool I used to make it
This is not a sponsored post I just wanted to share with you a really neat, inexpensive tool I used
Introducing the EZ Tracer Projector
Now, this method is not new, people have been using overhead projectors forever, but who can afford them!
The EZ Tracer is $18.00 in store at Hobby Lobby! Here's how it breaks down, the price is $29.99 but, you can print a 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby online. So, for $18.00 anyone can be a sign or mural painter! Oh, and it uses a regular light bulb, no expensive projector bulbs
I needed a sign for my space at the Fancy Flea and I tossed around a lot of ideas in my head before I spotted this sign at the thrift store for $8.00......Now how lucky can a girl get!
I had a piece of wood thin enough to slide right in! I left the wood long enough to stick out the top and cut curves in the top with my jigsaw and made a plaster applique...
I wanted the sign to look like my blog header so, I painted the center pink and then taped off the outside for the brown paint
Now I brought out my EZ Tracer. The beauty of this projector is that you do not have to be a graphic artist! Just type the words and print them out onto regular paper. The printed words go under the projector. Now, shut off the lights and project the words onto your board. If you want the words larger move the projector farther away, smaller, move it closer. That's it, nothing complicated.
Here is the small words I projected onto my board and then shut off the room lights and traced around the projected words.
I used a paint pen to fill the letters in, but you could use a sharpie or if you don't drink coffee, you could paint with a small brush and acrylic craft paint.
So, there you have it, my new toy.
For perfect polka dots I use these round stencil brushes
Now you can find me at the Fancy Flea April 28th in Lakeland, Florida
