More Paris

My mind has entered a fantasy world for a little while. Well not so much fantasy because I did have the good fortune of visiting the city of lights when I was younger, in the early 80's. It was a long time ago. mind gets to go back there because of some projects that I have coming up. A Paris Chunky book, which I have been painting backgrounds for the last few days. And a deco RR with the same theme. I know.....normally I don't like deco RR's, but it's on BookArtz & some wanted to do a deco but have never done one before- so that's the way it was set up. Here's my deco.

Did you ever finish a project then want to change something? For some reason I thought that piece of paper should overlap the black piece......till I was done, now I don't like it. But it was too late to change it. Now I know next time I won't do that! ;-) But I did like all the layering on this.

The binding was new for me but I really liked it. I've got another one started but it's on the back burner right now so I'll just work on it when I'm in the mood. Really want to finish this chunky book first.

Not so Vintage

This is a spread that I did in an AB. I think my friend Brigitte will be surprised. She's probably expecting something a bit more vintage. I hope I don't disappoint her. There ARE a couple strips from a really old bookpage. It wouldn't be from me if I didn't add that! ;-)

Edited to add comment:
Stacie! I love this page. I am impressed with your original artwork and the fact that you don't use much of the premade artwork ( that so many of us use. This is just a really neat page!
