Paris by Adriana Bolzon

Hi there everyone, welcome bloggers..... 

Adriana here today, with a project I created using the wonderful papers from 
"Meg's Garden of Papercraft delight" paper, 
The Gentlemen's Collectiondesigned by Kerry-Jean Watson.

Now another love of mine is the city of "PARIS".
I created a grungy and vintage Paris page with lots of layers,
bits and pieces with all embellishments which are
all available from Megs Garden Website

Here is my page "PARIS"

Besides the black cardstock for the background, I
used a piece of corrugated card, I also embossed
a piece of kraft cardstock with some antique keys, and
distressed all the new paper collections 
The Gentlemen's Collection.

I also cut some Floral flowers with a Tim Holtz die
with the 
The Gentlemen's Collection papers.

 I also cut some leaves and stems with the papers as well.
Inking and creating the flowers I placed some cog
chipboards in the centre of them with brads.

Distressing all the layers of card stock and papers with distress tool and inks and paints.

With the chipboard frame, I painted with some gold paint and placed some
Tea stained Mica fragments also glued some Tea stained Mica fragments also on the side of the black background card stock.  

Tim holtz 
metal frame corners 
with some white paint of top of them.
