Le Coq

I am joining the CSI Mod Podge Challange.

Visit thecsiproject.com
Remember this rooster I showed you a few weeks ago that I found at an antique mall?
Well it now looks like this...

I used Mod Podge, authentic French letters dating to 1904 and a vintage French song book from 1929 to create this one of a kind French rooster.

 Decoupage: [French d├ęcoupage, from d├ęcouper, to cut up or out, from Old French descolper : des-, de- + colper, to cut.



Take some vintage French papers....



A vintage French song book...
Doesn't he look cute with a frayed burlap scarf? 

 Welcome Home,
Penny

  16. Soo cute! I like what you have done with it.

    When I saw "le coq" and then saw that you mod podged it with french sheet music, I immediately thought of the song "le coq est mort." LOL Now I can't get it out of my head! One of those chansons that I learned in French class many years ago.

  17. Mr. Rooster is a delight all dressed up in his scarf. I like the little pig in the first photo too. Would you believe I don't own a single barnyard animal, either decorative or real?
