Bonjour Mes Amis!
It is beyond cold here at the Chateau this morning, with temps at 7 below zero! Yep, that is not including the wind chill factor!
So I am staying indoors all day today trying to keep warm and snug!
Awhile back I shared that I've been chosen to be part of the Design Team for DecoArt.
I am still pinching myself, and am thrilled to be a part of their creative team!
I thought I'd share with you my first assignment, a Parisian themed sign that I stenciled.
The assignment was pretty open ended, I just was asked to create something using DecoArt's
So, this is what I came up with!
My handy hubby came to the rescue and made the board for me, in the shape that I requested. It is quite large, measuring nearly 2 feet across.
You know how much I love aqua. Well, I totally am in love with this gorgeous shade of their chalk paint!
I had so much fun incorporating a variety of their French themed stencils!
"Marche Aux Fleurs" = "Market of Flowers"
I distressed the sign just a tiny bit, then followed with DecoArt's satin varnish for a subtle and protective sheen.
(I've not been compensated to write this post, and all of the opinions here are my own.)
Ok, do you want to visit a real Parisian flower market with me?
Here are some of my favorites when we visit Paris!
The one below is our favorite flower and produce market, just a few blocks from our hotel.
Just look at this amazing display, below! It is a gorgeous flower shop right across the rue from our hotel on the Left Bank.
Just looking at these pretty blooms makes me feel a bit warmer!
Look at these amazing blue hydrangeas, below! That is hubby in the photo, admiring all of the beautiful hanging birdcages.
More beautiful fleurs!
And here's one last look at my sign.
Hope you have a great weekend!
