Here are my latest menu boards inspired by my recent trip to Paris. I tried to give these a bit of European charm by using the black and gold. My husband thought they were for a wedding because of the cake but that was just something I added instead of my usual wreath appliques. They are touting pastries and cocoa and the like so a cake seemed fitting. However, he did give me an idea for a wedding reception sign. My wheels are turning now.
To transfer the cake image onto the board, I traced a cake image I already had and then painted it in. I put some swirls on the cake to give it some detail.
Although much of these are stenciled, most of the creativity comes from designing these signs. All my work is one of a kind. I never repeat the same sign twice.
The base of these signs are my usual cabinet doors found at the salvage yard. Then I get to work on an idea for the theme, the design and the background colors.
Thanks for dropping by for a visit. I hope you are inspired to put your thinking cap on to create a one of a kind something or other of your own.
