After I finish taking off the stencils I realized that it needed something else, plus somehow I got the E crooked on the bottom. I needed to put something on there to pull it away from the E. The different colored brown and beige leaves blended then created nice colors .

The leaf stencil worked perfect, I grabbed different colors of acrylic paint and went to town beiges to Brown’s. I think it turned out perfect .

Once it all dried I used a exterior clear coat.

i knew I would be putting outside so I painted the back of the board too.

The crooked E blends in perfectly! It was great the whole project took me a couple of hours and most of it was waiting for the paint to dry.
