Pink & White

I showed you the makeover I did on one of the three wood platters I picked up at the local antique mart here.  This second one also got pink and white, but I did it a little differently.  This time I painted the whole thing in Antoinette chalk paint and then taped off for stripes.

I used the Pure White chalk paint for the stripes.  It reminded me of an awning over a French bakery, or patisserie, so, of course, I used another graphic on this one, too.  This time I used this one {also from The Graphics Fairy}.

I used the top portion of the graphic {I previously used the bottom portion on a terracotta pot}.  I used the Mod Podge transfer method again on this project.  Here it is just after applying clear wax.

I did come back in and add more white on the ends.  This would look great hanging on a backsplash, wall or propped up on a plate stand.

That is super cute!

I don't remember ever seeing a tutorial on your blog about how to do the transfers or why you choose a certain method over another. I'd like to know what you think about the different methods since I just started getting into the whole image transfer thing.
