Taking a break from all the needle breaking otherwise known as sewing, I spent an afternoon creating a Juanita Tortilla signage. It is thoroughly old school, using carton, newsprint, oil pastels, and grease-proof baking paper. Not forgetting freestyle handwriting.
Image 1: The finished sign. How lightweight.
Image 2: ‘Bold’-ing the font oh so manually.
Image 3: Precious crayons from the days dinosaurs walked the earth. Opening the box and smelling it always makes me feel like a kid (from the dinosaur era).
Image 4: Translucent grease-proof paper to trap all the flaky bits of pastel and prevent smearing.
What do you think about it?
