The second sign I purchased was round. Once again, I looked through my pintrest boards to find a theme. I wanted a figure that would lend itself to the curved edges.
A fifties housewife with gingham/cherries dress relaxed & drinking coffee inspired me. I found several vintage coffee/tea ephemera and quotes. I knew immediately that my accent color needed to be red! I pulled a few scrapbook papers to use in the background along with some larger cream ephemera. I painted the edges red.
I designed my layout and used Goldens Heavy Gel Medium to adhere all my layers
I added a layer of Mod podge then set it aside to dry.
I added the gingham pattern to the dress and coated with mod podge again.
I used Faber-Castell Pitt Markers to paint in the details and added drop shadows throughout.
