More Graphic Design Fun~~Sharing Some Ideas~

You all know how I love to add pretty vintage french graphics to some of my designs for my shoppe, home and gifts. Here are a few more ideas I'd like to share.

An old plastic tissue box, Painted and trimmed with lace, adding the graphic.


An old wood basket painted and stenciled.

Love this graphic on an old coffee grinder.

Here is a pretty wood hand mirror with center graphic and my hand painted roses.

And lastly, this vintage chair.


Hope some of these inspired you to have some fun with french labels. Visit The Graphic's Fairy for free designs and have some fun.

Happy Creating!!

Thank you for stopping by. See you soon.
Smiles, Celestina Marie

The graphics are so pretty and I like the way you used them.
I love how you decorated the suitcase. The added rose is my favorite.
I hope you had a great vacation and had lots of fun and relaxation.
I'm trying to get back into the swing of things, howbeit it slowly.
Hope your weather has cooled a bit for you. Ours has with some storms that we've experienced lately.
I hope you have a great week, friend.
Take care,
Hugs

With the heat we are having, over 100 everyday, we don't feel like doing anything. It's 8:30 right now and I just came in from watering my patio plants and only feel like resting, but you did inspire me. Your graphics are so pretty, well I love everything you do anyway, especially the hand painted roses. Chair is gorgeous. Blessings, Lu

Hi Celeste!
Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday! Always love to see you!
I adore French labels and can't get enough of them. Love what you did here! So pretty and feminine!
Yes, pups are here but tiny little babies...have been tube feeding one for three weeks! Exhausting but rewarding if she makes it!
I lost my 12 year old Cavalier right before this litter so I do know how you feel about your sweet Ms. Beasley...it is sooo hard to lose them. I miss Lacey terribly but the babies have been a good distraction for me.
Take care and keep creating your beautiful things! xo Betzie

I love to visit the Graphics fairy and I save images all the time. My problem is not knowing how to use them. I love your wonderful ideas!

Moments of Grace said...

Oh, my dear friend. How I love what you create!!! The graphics are beautiful and your use of them is just lovely.

I also wanted to say how much I love the photos of your new living room. I looked at them over and over and just drank in the beauty of the transformation. It's a good thing I am not your neighbor or I would there every day just taking it all in!!! LOL.

Be blessed today my friend for you are such a blessing to me.

In Grace,
Marie

I am loving your black & white French theme, it looks so clean and crisp! Your creations are always so pretty! I am addicted to those French labels as I think everyone else, huh? LOL

We are heading into autumn, our busiest time of the year starts soon! I already base coated some ornaments today. I want to get a jump start this season.

Have a blessed week :)

Hi Celeste! Loving your blogs NEW FACELIFT and look! And for sure these new items you've painted are absolutely stunning. I have a soft spot for unique chairs...and this chair in this post really touched it! ;) Love the French Graphics! I just posted pics tonight of a phenomenal French bench that I located at a big antique fair in Atlanta that I picked up a couple weeks ago. The padding and fabric were all replaced, but the design itself of the bench is all authentic French built...I just love it - and they used BURLAP for the material, and I had been wanting something like this forever. Praying your business is doing great~ Hugs & Blessings....~CC Catherine
