After hubby’s 92 year old Pop passed away recently I wanted to make something for him to remember his Pop by. He lived in a little town called Bogan Gate with his wife and 4 kids where they had a farm with sheep and lots of grains. This project fitted in perfect with this months International Bloggers Club theme being all about wool. Sharing How To Paint And Stamp A Farmhouse Sign.

How To Paint And Stamp A Farmhouse Sign

Bogan Gate has a population of 306 and the name ‘Bogan Gate‘ is derived from the local Aboriginal word meaning “the birthplace of a great leader in an Aboriginal Tribe”. It is well known for a polo match between Great Britain and Australia back in 1897.
Hubbys Nan and Pop bread many sheep over their time on the farm and produced a lot of wool for Australia’s wool industry. So today I’m sharing how to paint and stamp a farmhouse sign incorporating wool in memory of Nan and Pop.

Step 4 –  Then taking the Typesetting and Farm Animal Stamp lay out your design onto your sign stamp down. Because there are only 1 of each letter you will need to space out your sign moving the letters along as you go. Once your happy place the transfer film over your design. I used 2 transfer sheets joined together with painters tape to be able to pick up the whole design. Load up your brayer and apply to the stamps then flip and press gently onto your design. Let completely dry.
