Ashley over at LittleMissMomma.Com has a bunch of really neat and crafty tutorials.
In this tutorial, she leads you step by step through the process of creating a painted sign with vinyl overlay. She uses her Cameo Silhouette to make a stencil for that lovely chevron background. The tutorial has plenty of helpful images and she is very thorough in her instructions. Sadly once the vinyl stencil has been used it can not be saved (or at least it doesn’t appear to be salvageable to me!). But go on over and check it out, see what you think!
