Inspiration Avenue: Paris, France

This week Hettienne set the challenge at Inspiration Avenue. She wanted us to pay homage to Paris. I took a few liberties and used a map of France, over which I added a couple of tape transfers that didn't want to give up their backing very well. The top transfer is of Paris. The scene is the Seine and Notre Dame. Not your typical view of Paris, I have to admit. The bottom transer is from the lowlands, where agriculture is prevalent. Aren't these old tractors cute? I love the mid-century photos and chose them for their historical value. I made this page for my 7-Continents Altered Book.

If Paris is someplace you dream of, please visit Inspiration Avenue this week and see what others find interesting about France.

I'm not sure, but I was hoping I wasn't the only person who couldn't get on Blogger yesterday. I could get on both TypePad and WordPress blogs, but not Blogger. I could also access web sites, but Blogger just wouldn't load. I keep having problems with my computer, but this seemed like a very specific problem. Please leave a comment if you experienced the same problem.

Love your take on Paris E!
Your transfers are brilliant and give such a great look to what you created!

It is never fun when things are not working right in blogland OR on the computer!

I am never much help :(

Love your page here Elizabeth...what is a tape transfer? We still need to meet some time!

I didn't have any problems with blogger, but I have noticed traffic is down as well as new followers.

I would like to try doing some transfers one day. We enjoyed Paris so much when we were there last August. Haven't had any problems with blogger here. Take care. Tammy

Transfers...yes...I'd forgotten about those. Very nice!!
I don't think I visited any blogs yesterday....for shame...so I can't speak to the Blogger issue.
