From Paris, with love

After such a great and creative weekend in ProzArt I came home full of ideas and new techniques, some of which I already applied. I've begun my scrapbooking journey with  a layout that I will share later this week. The current layout is the second one created, but it was done for some challenges and I wanna post it first.
Dupa asa un minunat si creativ sfarsit de saptamana la ProzArt, m-am intors plina de idei si tehnici noi, unele dintre ele pe care le-am si aplicat deja. Mi-am inceput calatoria prin lumea scrapbook-ului cu o pagina pe care o voi publica mai tarziu saptamana aceasta. Pagina de azi este a doua facuta dar este pentru provocari asa ca are prioritate la publicare.

This is a picture taken in Paris last year. The wooden mechanicals and the chevron chipboard are from 3rd Eye. I used random scraps of paper, but the main paper is from Authentic. I used gesso, acrylics, some Unity stamps and some texture paste. 
Aceasta fotografie a fost facuta in Paris anul trecut. Elementele din lemn sunt de la 3rd Eye. Pentru aceasta pagina am folosit multe resturi de hartii, dar hartia principala este de la Authentic. Am folosit gesso, culori acrilice, stampile de la Unity si niste pasta de textura.

For the textured dots I used a homemade stencil. I'll share a tutorial on that some other day.
Pentru cercurile texturate am folosit o masca facuta de mine. Am sa pun un tutorial in aceasta privinta.

I enter this layout to following challenges:
- Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Dotty

Thanks for stopping by!
Multumesc de vizita!


  1. Very cool layout. I love how you've washed the paper and the little elements that you've added to your paper to really blend it all together. Love the added polka dots; both stamped and the added texture ones! Lovely work! Thanks for sharing it with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. <3 Candy
