Garden of Dreams Sign

One of the things I found while cleaning The Abyss, was a large tub of gel medium.  I used it to transfer the flowers to this little sign I made.

That's right, this gallon was buried, and, it's full.

I gave a salvaged piece of wood my "Old World" finish, followed by the transfers.  You can click HERE to see how I used the gel medium to transfer the flowers.  I gave them a bit of distressing with a sanding pad.

The letters are rub-on transfers.  I distressed them as well.

Sealed, and done.

Actually, after I transferred the flowers, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with the blank space. "Garden of Dreams" just seemed to work.

  8. Rosemary,

    You are truly amazing. Love this sign!! When I get in our new home you are going cost me a fortune on your Etsy shop!


  9. The room looks wonderful, wow how nice to have some boys to move stuff around...The room looks so different and I love the wall treatment, great job girl...

  10. Hi Rosemary! I love how the sign turned out! Have you ever done anything like that on metal? I have some metal scraps left over from the hubs a/c jobs from duct work, and I want to use them to make signs similar to this. If you can point me in the right direction, I'd greatly appreciate it! Blessings from Bama!

    one of these days I'll give one of those great techniques of yours a try. =)

    be blessed
