Paris, city of dreams for AJJ

This journal spread has been made for  the latest theme over at
Art Journal Journey  ----Architecture

The pages were coloured with  some paler distress stains. 
Next was to stick down a couple of pre printed images with Paris scenes just visible in the background.
Some stencils to add texture [Sheena and Tim Holtz]. I used a little silver gilding wax when dry 
to highlight these, it proved realy difficult to get a good photo. 
The stamps used for the windmill etc, were also Tim Holtz.

Thank you for  calling to see me today, I always appreciate the comments you leave for me.


  1. Another wonderful journal spread, you have done this lovely place justice with it. Have a great day, and thanks for joining us at Art Journal Journey again, hugs, Valerie

  2. This is marvellous - I love the texture and colors and in general I love all about it and the fine shimmer you achieved with the gilding wax. So happy you linked to Art Journal Journey - such a beautiful contribution again!
