French Label Calendar Block Set

 Hello July.  Hi. I hope this post finds everyone enjoying their summer so far.  I have been so busy working on projects--it's been pretty wonderful.  

I have my first outdoor {gasp}, two day {yikes} show coming up at the end of the month, where I will be sharing a booth with my talented and sweet friend.

This is one of the calendar sets I made, so far.


Oooh-la-la!  

This was an experimental project, so I went with the flow and only took pictures at the end.  

I painted my plain wood blocks with white paint and let them dry.  I chose two french labels from The Graphics Fairy, and printed them on regular copy paper. 

 To keep the images from smearing from the Mod Podge, I sprayed them with clear acrylic sealer first. I punched out squares from the labels, and decoupaged them with Mod Podge.  I mixed a smidgen of the white paint with some Mod Podge, and went over them again to "fade" them.




I chose a french-y font for my black numbers, and then Mod Podged those babies on.  

I love when an idea works out, don't you?
