« on: May 03, 2010 07:20:36 AM »

On 30th of April in the Netherlands is the Queens day. And there is a traditional 'flee market' on different places of the country where people sell selfmade things or things they don't need anymore. A couple of months ago me and my boyfriend had an idea to sell selfmade buns. About 2 hours before going out we remembered that we need a poster to attract customers. So it was decided that I do that. The trick was my boyfriend wanted a big and attractive poster. And I didn't have much time. So I used the back of an old poster. I had a quite big tube of white tempera but the black one had managed to dry out. All other supplies weren't enough for such big poster. So I somehow managed to revive the black one with a bit of water. + I have never been good at drawing letters especially when U have so little time. And I had no idea what to make. So I painted the light brown board white and let it dry for 15 minutes. Since I had the monster swap in my mind this is what was created -

It says "Tasty buns" in Dutch. Not very neat, I admit. But it is huge and was made in a hurry and the price had to be changed etc. Anyways it was fun to make. And some people get attracted to buy the buns because of the poster. Cheesy

Great what you can do when you need something quick and with limited supplies!  It is large and if it attracts customers, it is good!

I must also comment on your scarf...it is really beautiful!

Leuk hoor!
Prima gelukt voor zo'n haastklus.
En, veel broodjes verkocht?
Het weer zat niet erg mee, geloof ik? (Ik woon tegenwoordig in Belgi, maar hier was het in ieder geval regenachtig, en bij mijn zoon in Groningen ook.)
Great job!
