Today I'm presenting my new layout for my Paris scrapbook.
It's called "Eiffel queue" and is devoted to that enormously long line we stayed in to get to the top of the Eiffel tower. Many people in the line made me think about using many small things. And I came up with... buttons! =)
That's the layout. Three photos: a view of tower from underneath; a photo of my husband in the line, and a crowd wanting to visit the tower.
A close up of my buttoned tower:
Journaling is written the way to imitate the line of tourists, it says: "23rd of May 2009, saturday: the amount of tourists wanted to go up the Eiffel tower never seizes, so we had to spend 2,5 hours in the line to get the tickets, but still we didn't go to the highest level - there was another line up there..."
With this layout I'm going to take part in a few challenges:
-Good hobby / Творческая мастерская - #8 - use a white sheet of paper as the base / Чистый лист. (ends at 31st of Aug) I actually took a piece of blank watercolor paper and based my layout on it. Clouds and grass are drawn with color pencils. If someone doubts I can show photos "in production" Для работы я использовала простой лист акварельной бумаги; облака и травка нарисованы цветными карандашами. Если кто не верит - могу показать фотографии процесса ;)
-Colour create challenge #51 - I used the necessary colors but was late to link my LO %)
Design dollies challenge - color combination (till 29th of Aug).
-Crafty catz weekly challenge # 46 - Buttons and butteflies (till 26th of Aug). I used a lot of buttons =) And three vellum butterflies I made myself.
-Scrapfit Workout 26 - Dress it up! + use black. (till 30th of Aug) I used some glitter on the butterflies and some buttons have sparkles; some buttons are black. Plus: how can you dress up without buttons? =) Every dress, even a little black one, needs buttons ;)
Thank you for stopping by and looking!
I appreciate your comments highly =)
