I had mentioned to my friend from work Deanna, that I would make her a Welcome sign a while back and have just now gotten it made....good thing she forgot about it :)
The metal base is a Goodwill store find that started out as a calendar which I sanded down and painted, distressed and then painted when I finally remembered to look for a small can of blue spray paint when I was at the store LOL. I airbrushed on the highlight distress colors around the edges where the letters were not going to be. I have trouble getting the letters to adhere to paint that is not the regular spray paint...probably me but I wanted them to stick since it was a gift ..know what I mean :)
All of the flowers are hand made and airbrushed to match the color theme of brown and blue. The key is a dollar bin find from Michaels', Love it. I attached a clear Tim Holtz tag onto which I mounted a vellum butterfly which I sponged with blue distress ink and a rose. In real life they appear to be floating around the key.
I cut up a crochet doilie for the upper right hand corner and tied a brown and white check ribbon to coordinate with the ribbon along the bottom.
I really enjoyed making the Welcome sign and loved the time I spent making this for my friend. I hope she enjoyed it.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day!!!
