Moving on, with lessons learned

I’ve blogged about my IATSE 618 logo project several times.  I am feeling the need to get the final project out of my head, so I can move on to something else. I tried several new techniques, most of which turned out rather well:  New stencil paper, arced tape lines, stencil numbers and letters.  I’ve learned a few unexpected lessons along the way as well:  Don’t over-burnish the tape, ’cause you’ll get dimples; the stencil numbers are rather sticky and the wood needs to be cleaned after use; and most importantly, measure the length of the nails used in the sawtooth picture hanger.  I couldn’t fix the last problem, and have been angry at myself for this simple mistake for quite awhile.  It’s time to move on.

Not that I won’t come back to it, but I think I need to mix it up a bit.
