"Jesus answered, "It is written: 'People do not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God."" Matthew 4:4 (NIV)
But He replied, It has been written, Man shall not live and be upheld and sustained by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God. [Deut. 8:3.](AMP)
But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. (KJV)
I picked up this Bread Box at the Goodwill, I have one just like it, that we received as a Wedding present, many years ago. We still use it and I've been thinking of updating it. So I thought this would give me a practice run.
I knew what I wanted it to look like, now I just needed to decide how I was going to achieve the "look"
I knew where to go for the graphic, The Graphic Fairy, of course, where else? http://graphicsfairy.blogspot.com/
Pinterest is loaded with transfer methods, so I started with what I thought would be the easiest.
The Wax Paper transfer method, and it smeared too much, then I went with the Freezer Paper transfer, still smeared. *sorry no pictures of the smeared mess, but I'm sure you can picture it...
Next up was the Mod Podge, with paper, then with Tissue Paper, I could not get the paper to come off with out taking some of the ink too! If you have a secret please let me know, I like that the transfer is darker.
I admitted defeat and decided to just stencil it, but I just wasn't happy with that. I love the stencil, it just wasn't what I wanted on my Bread Box.
I repainted (Again) and selected a new graphic, this time after printing it out on freezer paper, I cut out the different sections, and applied them one at a time, yea! Success!!!!!
I was so excited it finally worked that I applied one to the top, too!
