Springtime in Paris- for A Vintage Journey
Well it is time for a new challenge over at A Vintage Journey and our talented host this time is Astrid. The theme for her challenge is A Little Bit French. I decided to go for Springtime in Paris and for me that evokes feelings of romance and what better excuse that to have a play with some new goodies to create a collage style piece, using soft colours and hopefully a hint of vintage romance.
So here is my make : ( I have now added wire to the top to turn into hanging)
So I started by covering the base in some of my much loved paper from French Industrial paper stack..oh wow I need more! I used a piece with the Eiffel Tower on and then trimmed and edged with walnut stain DI.
I mean the paper is cool by itself! but inspired by Kaz Hall's wonderful layered pieces I went for it...I started by creating some stamped tags that will form part of the background...
and I also took apart a mini cabinet card and scuffed it up, using my sanding block. I added a photo from Tims found relatives and trimmed off the side to use as another layer.
so for the base layers :
I added some trellis framework die, die cuts (oh I love these framework dies), some ephemera and also the stamped tags, layering up I also added the leftover part of the found relative card as the backs are fab too.
I added a quote stamped from new stamp set and added some more idea-ology, film strip, tissue tape and a word band.
