Land Signs – Buena Vista & Hollywood Studios


I’m back with more paper pieced titles inspired by the lands at the California Adventure Park. Today I’m going with the Art Deco inspired areas of Buena Vista Street & Hollywood Studios.
First up, Buena Vista Street. To tell you the truth, I haven’t been inside the Disneyland Resort since January of 2012! I know, right. I’ve been depending on online images and gracious friends to take pictures of various signs so i could have reference points to work from. That’s how I was able to transform our backyard into Radiator Springs for our little guy’s birthday last year! I keep telling my husband we have to go soon, it’s research! But I digress, I chose to do a simple street sign for this title. I’ve seen some other signs that I love and will give them a try later on. So much gorgeous detail. This sign is just simple rectangles and the Roadway font.

Hollywood Studios gave me some trouble in trying to find out what the land is actually called. The last time I was there it was “Hollywood Pictures Backlot” but on the map it is Hollywood Land, but the sign in the park says Hollywood Studios. So very confusing! This sign is the Market Deco font, but the “W” has a very distinct shape. To achieve this I used two “V’s”  and merged them together. To create the dimensional look I cut one set of letters from a dark yellow and then created a shadow in a lighter color and then adhered them slightly askew. For the towers I used parts of the Empire State Building cut file found on the Art Deco Cricut Cartridge.
