Remembrance of Paris

Last summer I took an incredible trip to Northern France, and we spent several days in Paris so when I came across this image called Remembrance of Paris, I knew I had to do something with it.
I had some small pieces of peg board that I was saving to paint some signs on and they were the perfect size.  I painted the board white and applied my image.  Since the board had a funny texture, it was a little rougher than usual where the mod podge had been applied.  I wanted a very vintage look to the sign so that was okay with me.
I used tan and light grey and layered the whole board with several layers of washes.  I also used some stencils and applied some designs with my joint compound to make a 3-D effect.
I stenciled the word France on the very bottom and applied one of my small metal roses to the top.
Finally I waxed the whole board.  It's the perfect size and is a nice souvenir to help me remember my fabulous vacation.

Thanks for your visit.
I may be partying at...
