A Vintage Journey to Paris....

The theme over at "A Vintage Journey" was chosen by my lovely friend Astrid and she chose "A little bit French". Such a super them to do. Especially vintage Paris. And over at Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge it is simple "journey".  I actually had some time to craft "just for me" again today, so here is my "Paris journey" Entry... 


here are a couple of close ups of the detail. firstly the lovely crackle effect and secondly the wee Eiffel tower on top of the R....
I would also like to enter this in to the The Kraft Journal challenge of PARIS.
Thanks for stopping by.

Edited to add... this was awarded a pinworthy award from "A Vintage Journey".

  5. Louise...I so love your Parisian piece! What you have done with the black die cut film strip just pops right out of your shadow box! I love it! I also love your Eiffel Tower that is tucked in the center. Your use of Tim's Pediments on either side of that handsome vintage gentleman's portrait is also a very cool look. The crackling on the exterior of your shadow box makes the piece even look all the more vintage! I love it all! Thanks for sharing your shadow box with all of us at A Vintage Journey. <3 Candy
