Frenchy Basket


What started out as a plain  brown wicker basket has now taken on a French-y vibe.


The basket was given a coat of off-white paint, then a second lighter gray color  dry-brushed on just to catch the highlights.



Using a graphic from The Graphics Fairy  (do you ever wonder just how many times this graphic has been downloaded?),  I printed directed onto the fabric and then Mod-Podged 
it into place.


Since there are stacks of baskets in the garage, I may just be coming down with  an ailment called french-y  basket fever.

Until next time, Honey

  18. It's so good to see you post something about a basket. Baskets have been around for centuries and don't get the attention they once did. I love what you have done and just look at all the uses.....great job,
