Working on this was an interesting challenge. It looks simple and some might think I just sat down and made it one day. Truth is - it's been going on for months. The main image, an iron was easy, but I wasn't sure what the other two images would be. The teacup seemed right but then what else? A goat? A paper lantern? A pencil? I have 3 more tin toy ironing boards so I'm hoping to make more like this.
Since the background tin is a toy ironing board I wanted the images to look like the ones that are in children's word books from the 50's.
