Oh, Paris! lo

edit: I've won Top 3 for this lo at #4 Sketches in Thyme!
Thank you so much, Thyme's gal's!

Another multi-layers lo... I really liked the sketch over sketches in thyme. I loved the way those layers are thrown on the page, like in no particular order. I loved the unstraight lines, kind of 'wild' look.
The photos were taken 13 years ago, on my first tour to Paris. It was amazing! This particular point of view, over Art's bridge towards Pont Neuf bridge, is one of my fav place in Paris.

To show the date, I used some playing cards - 7/8/1997. It was the middle of summer, but yet it was a very cloudy grey day.

Look at this semi envelope with the doily. I wanted to put inside a page with some journaling about the tour, but then again, the page was already with so many layers, so I didn't want to add anything further. But still I love that envi!
I used some chocolate brads on the photos and the dp, and  a key shape brad from Tesa's RAK ond the doily. Alsoe I did some faux stitching over the dps.

The "Paris" sentiment and the "Tour Eiffel" image are both stamps I got from my friend Tesa. The sentiment was stampped over a cream paper that I adhered over a cloth tag.

The blue/teal  flowers are homemade out of a dispaensable table cloth. I used a little wooden frame around the "paris" sticker, which I layed over a white feather.

I enjoyed making this lo. It remineded me of the good time I had at Paris. At that tour I had all the time in mind the song of Marianne Faithful "The ballad of Lucy Jurdan" . Engoy...

תמונות מפריז, מבט אל גשר פון נף. זו אחת הפינות האהובות עלי ביותר בפריז, אם לא האהובה ביותר. התמונות הן מטיול שעשיתי לפני כ-13 שנים, ואת התאריך תיעדתי עם קלפי משחק.
אהבתי מאד את הסקיצה הזאת. ריבוי השכבות, העובדה שהדפים מונחים בזויות אחד כלפי השני ולא בקוים ישרים, כאילו נזרקו אחד על גבי השני.
הכנתי מעין מעטפה, עם כיסוי של מפית תחרה, והתכוונתי להכניס בפנים דף עם כיתוב על הטיול. אבל הדף יצא מאד עמוס גם כך, ולא רציתי להוסיף עליו עוד.
הפרחים הכחולים הוכנו ממפת אלבד, כזאת שלוקחים לפיקניקים ואח"כ זורקים. אז זהו, שלא חייבים לזרוק. אפשר לכבס ולהשתמש מחדש כמפה וגם להכנת קישוטים. הפעם הכנתי את הפרח מ-5 עיגולים שנתפרו בתך מכליב אחד אחרי השני ואז כיווצתי לעיצוב של מראה פרח.

תודה שנכנסתן לבלוג שלי להסתכל.
שיהיה שבוע נעים וקליל.

יופי של דף מעוצב- מלא ביופי וקישוטים מדהימים.

אהבתי מאוד את הקומפוזיציה ואת הגוונים של הדפים.

אני רואה שאת פורחת כשאת מעצבת בצבעים עדינים.... לכי על זה.

יום נפלא
