So I know this sounds weird, but I painted this (well just the background) with q-tips. I had taken a class revolving around teaching art to students in elementary school, and this was one technique we used, and I loved it! I feel like it gives a lot of control, and it's easy to cover up mistakes. I hand painted the words freehand. These are now up as a set in my new apartment. I hope you like them!







Thanks for reading!
