EAT Sign

I made it through to round 2!! YAY!! This is my project for round one of the On Month To Win It competition.  I had a lot of fun making this and really love how it came out!!  

When I heard the first challenge was spray paint I was so excited, since it's one of my favorite things!  So, I went hunting at the Goodwill for some inspiration when this picture jumped out at me,  I just knew how I wanted to transform it.

After I took it completely apart I had 3 separate pieces.  The frame, the outside mat, and the inside picture.  This made it easy to paint each one.  I used Krylon Cherry Red for the frame, primer gray, and flat white.
I wanted to add another element of texture, so I cut lots and LOTS of circles out and used Modge Podge to glue them onto the picture.  After that, I painted over them with the flat white.   

I glued the painted letters on, put all the pieces back together, and it here it is! I love the results!! The circles in the middle give it something extra and fun, but it's subtle at the same time! It looks perfect in our kitchen I just want to stare at it all the time ;)

I'm off to work on round 2's project, which is to use a Deco Art product in the design...  Wish me luck! ;)
