Articles de Paris

This is the 1st blog on the new Collection by Denise Ann - Le Belle Jardin (The Beautiful Garden). Adriana
was the 1st of the Design Team to present her projects using the above paper on The Color Room & they are presented to you here - they are just beautiful & elegant. The colours & embellishments that Adriana used really work tremendously well with the paper.  Well done Adriana

Layout - Dream

Best Wishes Card

Adriana Bolzon’s  project for TCR#92

When I first saw the palette colours for this week on “The Color Room”, I just love them.  So vintage, whimsical and gorgeous.
I created the Layout using the 12x12 & 4”x12 “Articles de Paris” paper.
I dyed “Meg’s Garden” flowers, lace and German Scrap.
HINT: If you have so many flowers and lace that are white or cream, you can change the colour of them to suit your layouts and cards with Glimmermist sprays and inks.
I had this old antique frame which was originally brown and gold.
So I painted it white and inked it with blue ink.
