I’ve been debating between making Rabbit and Sheep Greetings into a pull toy and a rocker. I finally decided on a rocker and thought I’d share the process with you.
I can either use a slice of bowl, which you can see in the upper left quadrant of this photo or I can use my very last antique trunk strap, shown in the middle of the picture. The bowl will need to be cut down, and were I to use it, I would cover the bowl with the ticking fabric shown using Mod Podge. However, I think I’d like to use the trunk strap and Mod Podge the top of it with vintage ephemera. So, I go to my favorite online source for vintage images and find some fabulous spring art….
I love these vintage postcards from The Graphics Fairy (click here to visit her site ~ she has so many wonderful images, most of which are free and in the public domain, so no copyright confusion!). I wonder what Otis thinks of my spring picks…
…what he really likes is my paint brush. I, however, am reconsidering the Spring look and decide that Rabbit and Sheep Greetings should have correspondent-inspired clip art, instead. The Graphics Fairy comes to the rescue once again and provides me with these awesome options….
I cut out bits and strips of the above and start Mod Podging the inner curve of the trunk strap….
And, of course I can’t resist anything mounted on a porcelain doorknob! Isn’t Cathy’s work beautiful? Perfect! Thank you, Cathy, for sharing your wonderful work!
Until the glue dries and we can continue on with this project, be warm and safe!
