This week's project and video is to up cycle an old decorative sign. I looked on pintrest to find some vintage ephemera and a subject. Once I had a them, I pulled some old map, music and encyclopedia papers to use as a base for the background.
I added dark turquoise, a medium value and a touch of Blue-green iridescent Pebeo paint along the edges after I lightly sanded the surface.
Once dried, I began designing my layout. I started with my map papers, making sure to crease the curved edges, and the the music paper. I wanted the title to be visable. After cutting out the reference photo in white cardstock and patterned scrapbook paper for the sail, I placed all the ephemera.
I used Mod Podge to adhere my background papers and worked my way to the top layers adding a final layer of Mod podge setting it aside to dry.
The final step is using Faber Castell Pitt Markers over the dried Mod Podge to paint the sail. I added a plaid shirt and denim shorts.
