The Grey City -lo העיר באפור

Edit: this lo won Top 3 at Lasting Memories
for their "stamp away" challenge.
thank you

After making a few CAS layouts, I'm back to the vintage multi-layers style. This style is the best for scrapping photos from Paris, isn't it?

I used Basic Grey kraft cs, 7 Gypsies dp, Cosmo Cricket dp and K & co. dp. All papers were distressed. Here are some close-ups on the layers and the distressing:

I also used lace, ribbon, crochet flowers that I've made, lots of buttons (20 buttons!), brads and eyelets, paper lace runner, stamps and a charm. Here're the close-ups on the details:

It goes for the following challenges:
use hearts (mine are the chocolate brads on the corners of the green dp) - opus gluie; totally papercrafts;
flowers - fairytale;
ribbon, brads, pp - 4crafty chicks
colors (brown, pink & green) - truly scraumpatious
polka dots - tellen's place
flowers & BG - basicgrey
hearts & ribbon - really reasonable ribbon
ribbon & lace - pink gem designs
pearls & lace - phindy's place
buttons - scrapbookers annonymous
butterflies - flutterby wedensday
anything goes + kraft cs - the kraft journal
anything goes + stamp - scrap and stamp
photo inspiration (I took the vintage/shabby chic look and the colors) - hlsc
use hardware - flourishes
use your stamp/s - lasting memories (mine are on the pink dp)

And here's a sneak peek to another new lo I've done:

I'll post it on Friday, with the new Frosted Designs' challenge.

Thanks for your visit!

אחרי כמה דפים בסגנון פשוט ונקי, בדף הזה חזרתי לסגנון הוינטאג' מרובה השכבות והקישוטים. התמונה מטיול בפריז שעשיתי ביולי 2009. אני פשוט אוהבת את העיר הזאת. כל הניירות עברו יישון. השתמשתי בפרחי קרושה שסרגתי, המון כפתורים, תחרה, סרט, סיכות מתפצלות וניטים, פנינים, פרפרי בד וצ'ארם (אמרתי כבר שחזרתי להעמיס על הדף, לא? :)...). האותיות של תוצרת הארץ.

תודה על תשומת הלב :).
