|Michele Rivard on a business call|
Here is the example of how this idea hit me.
|As you can see along with Annie Sloan's chalk paint sign Miss Mustard Seed's sign http://www.missmustardseedsmilkpaint.com is in the planning stages as well.|
After showing Michele my drawing and seeing her enthusiasm I returned last week to the store and photographed Michele's cans of paint. Photographically I knew I hadn't planned things out to a "T", but I also knew it was involving the transfer process so which is rustic to begin with. That gave me a little room for the variations in lighting that were bugging me.
After taking the photos I edited them, got them printed and transferred them onto a score of a finding, a huge plank of wood I had rescued previously from someones trash. Here are the various stages of the making of the sign.
|Now you see why manicures never last for me!|
|Nearly all the paper is removed|
|Add a little distressing|
