I printed a Chicago Bears symbol and then placed a transparency on top of it. I then traced the design onto the transparency. Then I was able to project the image right onto the boards! That gave me a guideline to use while painting (and made it look like I knew what I was doing!)
And one more hint if you are going to do something like this. Go slow. I rushed it and had to spend a lot of time fixing it up - which is really never that fun! But I'm happy with the way they turned out! And Kevin likes them as well!!
