If you know me, like realllllly know me, you know that I'm quite fond of quoting lyrics from 80's/90's rap songs. To this day I can recite every single lyric of Ice Ice Baby. Yes, I'm quite the rapper - haha! You'll know that you are a very close friend of mine when you say something smart and I reply, "Word!" Yes, I'm that dorky mom that embarrasses my teenage girls by acting like a retro-rapper. I'm cool like that.
So when I decided that I needed a BIG piece of art for my office wall, I settled on a typography sign. I thought long and hard about the perfect quote. I tried song lyrics, lines of poetry and famous quotes from all kinds of authors. Then, it hit me - WORD. Yep, yep! Word to your mother.
Once it was all covered and brushed off to clean up the letters, it was like solid gold.
Gold leaf needs a thin coat of sealer to keep it all safe and secure.
Just a light coat is all that it needs - and it dries in just a few minutes.
