Avec Amour Tags

  Here are a few tags I made using my Eiffel Tower image.  I added one to my husband’s gift on Valentine’s Day; yellow is his favourite color! Avec Amour for those of you who may not know, means With Love. Hope you’re having a creative day!  Deena

The First Palace of Women I made a Moulin Rouge inspired digital journal page, my third page since I joined the Art Journal Caravan.  We are traveling to FRANCE this month, so of course Paris, and the famous Parisian theaters came to my mind! I’ve used Tangie Baxter’s February AJC parcel papers and embellishments to create this page. My page is a tribute to the Belle Epoque period; the “beautiful era” of peace and optimism while the arts flourished! Inspired by the AJC prompt: Did you know?…I discovered a few things about the famous Moulin Rouge.  The Moulin Rouge opened to much success in 1889 in the Jardin de Paris, and  it was nicknamed The First Palace of Women by the owners, hence the title to my journal page!  It is best know for being the birthplace of  the seductive modern form of the Cancan dance.  It is still open today and I would love to visit!

New Digital Scrapbook Page

This is my digital scrapbook page for CSI Case File # 56: I had fun reminiscing with this page…this is my oldest son when he was 5, and I loved the color scheme for this challenge! I’ve used ROBIN SAMPSON digi papers and elements, and created my own sentiment.  I played with the shadowing and blending of elements and overall I’m quite pleased with how it turned out!  I encourage you to have a look at the CSI layouts as the designer projects are fabulous!! Lots of inspiration for digital and traditional scrappers!!
