Pretty Paris

Hi everyone,

Ohh I just can't wait for next week! Because then I'm going to Paris! Again, yippee! I'm so looking forward to it. I'm going with 3 friends and it will be great fun, I'm sure of it! I'm finally gonna climb the Eiffel Tower! It is already reserved, so it's really happening! This week Simon Says Stamp and Show has a very appropriate challenge that fits my upcoming trip: Passport to Fun! So collect your travel stamps and get inky!


I had some old pictures from a previous trip to Paris. I think it's from about 5 years ago. I was with my BFF Lein. This mini Maya Road canvas album is perfect for this project. First I applied the camera stencil with modeling paste. After that was dry I colored the canvas cover of the album and the canvas envelopes with Color Shine and Color Wash Spray. I needs to be really dry before I could continue. It takes a while for fabric to dry. I can take so long before I decide where everything goes, so this cover took a while, as did all the pages!





The pages I covered with the 75 cents paper collection of Kaiser Craft. I love that beautiful paper line! So pretty! The pictures are a bit to big for the pages, but I don't mind. I used a lot of modeling paste with stencils, and the most text is done with the Label Letters from Tim Holtz. The best letter stickers! Only there are not enough 'U's on one sheet!
 

 

 



To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Hugs,
Sandra

  2. Sandra...your Parisian book is absolutely darling. I love all of the color and pattern you've used on this! Those Kaiser craft papers really make great backgrounds for your pages. I really love your photos, too. All of the little bits of Ideaology, the little tags and the sweet dimensional roses add so much interest. I love your project and I hope your trip back to Paris was as wonderful as the first one! I've never been there. I'm just a bit jealous! haha <3 Candy
