Welcome Door Sign

The biggest challenge on this piece was figuring out how to space the black and white stripes evenly because they radiate from the center. I had to scratch my head over that one until it finally came to me.

Wow...what a good job and the stripes look great. What an interesting piece. I've never seen anything like it before. Where did you find it? Gail

Wowza!! That is sweet! You did do a wonderful job on the stripes. Now is that center plaque separate?? If not it sure looks like tin. YOur flowers all look gorgeous! Beautiful Beautiful piece! ~Anj

Thanks so much everybody! :-)

The original piece was just a plain flat unfinished wooden plaque I purchased from Michaels.

Everything else you see there I painted on it. There is no extra piece of tin on it; that's just trompe l'oel -- just shading around the "tin" part. The stripes were to make it a little "Mackenzie Childs." I love their stuff.

Oh, Gail -- are you asking me if there was a pattern for this? No, there is no pattern; this was my creation. I like to do my own thing, but I do research other pieces for inspiration.
