French Postmarked Memo Board

Thank you Graphic Fairy for your
inspiration in this French memo board. 

I began with a french postmark and signature.

Using the copy I printed as my guide, I sketched
a version of my own...
(rubber stamps are available with many of the same postal stamps as I've drawn here...)

After being pretty darn happy with the results, I wrapped the paint cloth fabric around a foam core base and inserted it into a picture frame. 

I finished off the back with heavy weight brown paper.

And here you go... 

a beautiful, French inspired memo board.

    Thank you so much for your sweet comment about my screened in sun-room that Susan featured today for her Metamorphosis Monday.
