So here is the first challenge for the MPTS design team..... Vintage Paris. Woohoo!
What a perfect challenge for me! I created this project using some pictures and goodies I collected on a trip I took to Paris with my mom in 2008. (Love you mom!)
1. Vintage Paris themed
2. Use arcylic paint, metal, and fabric
3. Utilize crackle technique
So I decided to make some cards for my 7gypsies photo carousel....
One of my favorite pages. I love the Prima flower on this one. I used the crackle paint on the black backround - love the way it finishes off the page and gives it that vintage feel (I used Tim Holtz's Rock Candy crackle paint). For all of my photos, I used an action called "butterscotch vintage" created by Rita at http://coffeeteaphotography.blogspot.com/.
Close-up of the flower - love it!
I have enjoyed collecting lots of different types of laces. It looks so pretty on so
many different kinds of projects.
This page has three of the challenges. I used white acrylic paint to cover up some of the patterend paper to create a spot for some journaling. I used a euro coin as the center of the paper flower and also used the crackle paint on the background here.
I decided to use photos that represented a lot of the places we visited. One of my favorites was The Musee D'Orsay. A wonderful time with mom and so many beautiful pieces of art. To make a place for all of the ticket stubs and such, I made the backgrounds of all of the pages into pockets to slip in a tag.
All of the tulips were blooming around France - so beautiful to see spring in Paris!
I ruffled some fabric to make a border for the tulip page.
The black and cream page is actually flocked paper - the texture of the page is awesome!!
All of the paper I used for this project was from a paper pack (from Hobby Lobby) called "Paris Nights". It had some really awesome papers in the collection and was the perfect colors for a vintage paris project.
I think these are my two favorite pages. I just loved how they turned out and cherish the memories these photos represent for me.
I hope you enjoyed looking at my pages! I would love to hear what you think!
