OUAS - Feb 2012

I have been trying to get time to play along with Nadia's gorgeous sketches
for such a long time, but never have the time.. but this weekend I had time to create a page using her sketch and journalling ideas for the theme of the page.
The Theme is scrap a holiday event or place you wish to go for holiday.

I dream that one day I will be in Paris,
Paris is far more than a city.
It is an irresistible, enthralling source of inspiration
and fascination.  It is a magical, whimsical and memorable city.

One day I will be in Paris, but for now I can only scrap other peoples'
images of this beautiful city.
The image is from a vintage postcard.
Here is the sketch from "Once Upon a Sketch" 
check out the OUAS DT creations here

Here is my take on the sketch

PARIS - My dream is that one day I will be in Paris.
Paris is far more than a city.
It is an irresistible, enthralling source of inspiration and fascination
It is a magical, whimsical and memorable city.

Alphas are "Imaginarium Designs" Capital letters

great page! I love that atmosphere!

Michele said...

oh so dramatic Adriana! I love it! The vintage feel of each and every one of those flowers really adds to the page; and don't think for a moment that those small accents go unnoticed- the camera the travel bag and the ship, cute! The addition of black really makes the colors pop, and the overall vintage shabbiness is glorious!
