I keep seeing weekly menu planners all over Pinterest lately and wanted to make my own version. -Dr Seuss style! Because who doesn't love Dr Seuss, right?
I used a foam brush, so as not to get lots of brush strokes... and painted it all white (a couple of coats).
Then I searched Google images to find the images that I wanted to use. I saved them to my computer so I could open them in another program to crop them and play with the sizes to get what I wanted.
Then glue those babies on there -I used a thin layer of Mod Podge all over the backs and it worked great.
When that has had time to dry, go back in with a very fine brush and some black paint to add the shadows and outlines. I found it helped to have a damp brush and water down the paint just a BIT to make it go on smoothly. Or if you prefer, use a fine tip Sharpie.
Here they are starting to take shape.
