I have wanted to make one of these signs for the longest time. Today was a good day to do it. I spent most of the day today watching Final Four Basketball (Go Michigan State and Duke!) and working on my “Hello” Subway Art project.
First thing I had to do was go to the Google Translator to get the proper spellings of the word “Hello” in several different languages.
Guten Tag – German
Ciao – Italian
Hola – Spanish
Ahoj – Czech
Bon Jour – French
Hej – Swedish
My husband was bummed that I didn’t include the Norwegian “Hallo” in my little art project since he is half Norwegian. Sorry but I ran out of room!
First thing I did was to paint a canvas with black acrylic craft paint. It took 3 coats to get the solid black look I wanted.
Then I took my stencils and started to stencil on my word “hello” in all of its various languages and spellings.
I am pretty happy with the way it turned out. It would be fun to try this on a larger scale and have several more languages represented on it.
And of course then I had to do the Home Tour to decide where to put it.
I am sure that I will move it around to several more locations before it finds a more permanent location.
I am going to try this again with a larger canvas and I am going to make it using all of the addresses we have lived at over the years. I’ll let you know how it goes.
