'City of Gold' Layout - Scrap 365 Magazine Feb/Mar 2014 Issue - Prima/Lindy's Stamp Gang





Hi again.  Just sharing another layout published in 
Scrap 365 Magazine Feb/March issue this year.


It was published in the Holiday/Travel Gallery. 
 I used the Prima "I love Paris" collection from a couple of years back.
  I ordered it especially to match my Paris photographs!


I used a plastic vintage doily for my misting, along with bright red mist from
 Lindy's Stamp Gang.  Paris is full of red & so much of the exquisite French 
architecture is gilded so the gold seemed an appropriate contrast.


As well as patterned papers I used co-ordinating journaling cards
 & different types of mesh for texture.  I also fussy cut some
 elements & inked them up for a vintage feel.


I used a stamp from Inkido, directly on my photo.  Love!!


I also used elements from Prima's Delight Collection by Jodie Lee. 
 The great thing about favouring products from a small selection
 of manufacturers means that often their collections work well 
with each other, even if they are a couple of years apart! 

 THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT & VISITS!!
