La Maison Boheme


I’ve had this pice of timber for a while now, just waiting for me to decide what to do with it.


I finally decided to create a sign to hang on the wall, to read “La Maison Boheme” which in means The Bohemian Home in French.

I started pencilling in the words and the leafy border, then filled in the border with watercolours.



Then I outlined the design using a black felt tip pen, and gave it a varnish to darken and seal the sign.


Finally, all I needed to do was put some wire on the back to hang it with.

A few years ago I discovered that you can use the little pull tabs from soft drink cans as hangers-ingenious and cost effective!


Then I found a space on my dining room wall to hang it!
