Ready for some great vintage artwork for your dining room? Mine is finally done! .... well, I don't have it up on my wall yet but I have another art project that will go with it. Can't wait for the final reveal!
2 boards the same size
Newspaper or Phone book pages
White and Brown paint ~ or whatever color you prefer
2 Images ~ Found mine at The Graphics Fairy
Start off with your boards
|I had 2 MDF boards leftover from another project. They're a |
little heavy so you might want to go with plywood of some kind.
|This will give your board some texture|
|How much you crumple them and lay them is up to you. If you |
smooth them out you'll have minimal texture. The more pages
and crinkles there are obviously will give you more texture.
|I ran out of my white paint and ended up using some other |
|On the edges I didn't dilute the paint as much and didn't wipe |
it away as quickly so they were a little darker
|Vintage Kitchen Clip Art|
|Line up where the image should be|
|I wouldn't recommend using your Glossy Mod Podge for this one|
|I used a wet paint brush to go back and pull up some of the|
paper left behind. Don't be too aggressive when trying to peel
up the paper, remember you have a thin layer of paper
underneath your image and don't want to pull that up too.
|Again be careful when peeling up the remaining paper|
|The white spots are my touch-ups. Once dry I went back over the |
spots with the brown "glaze".
|I started painting "Menu" hopefully that will make the outline|
easier to see
Thanks for stopping by!
