    A Paris Street Painter and a French Images SALE!

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Collage Sheets, Giveaways, Laura Carson, Sale, Streets of Paris

    Wow! Can you believe we’re at “episode” TEN of Design Team Member Laura Carson’s The Streets of Paris series?

    Note: You can easily look back at the previous posts in this series; the last one was the upstairs Librairie Ancienne & Moderne — Old & Modern Bookstore, shown at left.

    I think there may just be one (two?) more posts in this series (I know… so sad to see the series ending).

    But let’s focus on the new project:
    A Paris Street Painter.


    I love what Laura has made from the new Small Peddlers Cart! This new version is 5″ long (including the handle portion), 5-3/4″ tall, and 2″ deep (without counting the wheel axles).

    Here’s a bit of text from Laura’s blog post as an introduction:
    On the sidewalk outside of the shops, you’ll find a street artist painting scenes of Paris. The red awning over the peddler’s cart says “Paintings for Sale”. Underneath is a crate full of paintings, a cashbox, and an artist palette.

    There are even more paintings hanging on the outside of the cart plus another crate of paintings sitting on the sidewalk.

    Next to the cart is a chair with an attached umbrella to keep away the sun while she paints. In addition, there is an easel with two finished paintings and a paint set. I’m guessing she is over at Cafe du Noir for lunch.

    Laura created a new collage sheet today (with tons of impressionist paintings of Paris).

    Psst… Laura is giving away a bunch of freebies on her blog post, too, like that red awning, umbrella, and money! (hmm… free money)

    See everything Laura used in her supply list. Come back after enjoying her new video tutorial (and lots more info & photos) for new items, a new French-themed sale, and a Giveaway drawn from Laura’s supply list!

    - Chipboard Border Strips – Shells (also painted red, and used as trim across the sides of the cart)
    - Laura’s new Paris Paintings Collage Sheet
    - 33mm Gold Spear Crystal Connectors (I should make this a quiz to see if you can find them… but I’ll tell you: they are used to hang pictures on the cart and as a stand to stand pictures up on the cart)
    - AND: the Small Peddlers Cart itself!

    And remember: my 4 picks from the French Vintage Theme on the clearance site are included, too! (Scroll up just a bit to see them.) See more French Vintage Theme Sale Items.
