No problem for me. Everyone knows that I love Paris and I've made several pages about that romantic city over the last month or so. Therefore, I decided to make a layout about my trip to the west of France from the beginning of the month instead.
I just couldn't reduce the number of photos I wanted to include on my page so I just jiggled the photos around until I found a way to squeeze them all onto one 12x12. It's not my favourite ever page but I still love it!
Julene suggested that we channel our inner Paris by using elements which remind us of the city or incorporating lace, beads, pearls or anything that suggest the romance of the place.
I had included lots of these types of embellishments into my February kit, Amour, and had a lot of fun using some bits and pieces that I haven't used for a long time - beaded flowers, lace, metal corners. The layout is a bit more dimensional than usual but I really do think it's reminiscent of Paris and France in general.
The paper in the background here is actually postcards and envelopes covered in French printing and writing. You can't really see it but I know it's there and therefore, it's perfect.
The title just came to me when I looked through the photos. I also picked out the softer colours from my kit that seemed to complement the stone and antique shades in the photos. Soft aquas, stone, cream, gold, greens.
Several visual triangles have been used in the hope of helping the viewer work their way around this rather busy page. Hope that works!
And that's it for now! My third page with my Amour kit and a layout that is a perfect reminder of one of the best weekends I've had in years. This is such a beautiful part of the country and I can imagine making one or two more layouts about my time there.
