FabScraps Romantic Travel Collection
This is Parisian Rose using the Romantic Travel Collection from FabScraps.
This collection offers so many versatile crafting options. I chose not to use as a travel piece but worked off the colors from the papers and kept my layout rather simple.
My image is from Magic Moonlight Free Images. A great place for vintage images.
I also used a lot of Rub N Buff gold leaf paste around the outside and on my chipboard piece as well.
Below, you can see my clustering. My flowers are not any brand name - just some fabric flowers from the craft store that resembled the flowers in the image. I accented with a lot of gold items from the buttons to the metal jewelry piece. The metal jewelry piece is a clearance piece from a craft store. I just tucked it in with tons of glue and moved on from there.
Here is the wonderful FabScraps Chipboard -Eiffel Tower DC55004. I love this piece. It is small and can get tucked anywhere and not be the focal point of the layout. I only wanted a hint of Parisian theme, not an overwhelming Parisian piece. It's scaled and sized perfectly!
I left it unpainted and simply inked the edges. Then I rubbed it with Rub N Buff gold leaf to match the rest of the page.
It sits a top a page I ripped out from a very old book dating to 1895. The book is otherwise useless at my house because it is a book on Etiquette. I have two teen boys and a crazy cat (Escape Kitty - my scrappy Kitty) - where am I going with a book on Etiquette? LOL
The edges of this book are already yellowed and I added only the light purple from my Donna Salazar Mixd Media Inx in Wisteria.
Here are some of the FabScraps products I used:
Travel Time 1 C55007 used as the background paper
Travel Time 2 C55008 Chipboard -Eiffel Tower DC55004
