They are so good, I couldn't pick just one. (Isn't that a potato chip slogan?)
One of the things we like most about Darline's signs is they have great shapes. They aren't just rectangles or squares. The scrollwork shape here on this Paris Flower Market sign really emphasizes the vintage feel of her work.
Doesn't her paint look perfectly chippy and old? We loved that weathered look she's able to create. She does a lot of decor for weddings, (in fact, we featured her in last Wednesday's Etspiration) like the sign above, but she has art for other occasions as well.
As she wrote in her email to me, she uses Laura's flourishes extensively in her signs to add that little extra bit of interest. If you have never looked, there's a whole category at the Maisondestencils store dedicated to Flourishes and Scrolls and the possibilities are endless as to where you can add them. Signs, pillows, labels, homemade wrapping paper. You name it!
Isn't this Air Postale sign just the coolest? I love the postmark, it adds that special authentic feel to the sign.
Many thanks to Darline for use of her images. Please check out her Etsy shop here, it has the greatest stuff.
Have you made a sign using a Maisondestencils stencil you'd like us to feature? Drop us an email, we'd love to hear from you.
Take care, have a wonderful weekend. I see blue sky here on the coast so I think I'll unplug from the computer for a little bit!
