I Love Paris in the Springtime


I'm once again joining Rosie at Rosie's Kleine Bastelwelt (Rosie's Small Craft World) this month's host at Art Journal Journey with her theme Spring.

I would love to visit Paris, and I believe visiting in spring would be the perfect time to do so.


Nothing says Paris more than the Eiffel Tower.

Yes, I truly DO love Paris in the springtime, at least in my dreams.

For this entry, I started in my Challenges altered book.  I laid down the beautiful wrapping paper I saved when I won Gaby's giveaway a few months ago.  The washi tape also came from some of the gifts she wrapped so carefully.  I cut a piece of colorful cardstock sent to me by Erika on which I stamped the Eiffel Tower.   I colored a computer generated sentiment and added it to the page.

Thanks for joining me today and thank you for your visit.  I also hope to see you at Art Journal Journey, too.

Wow --- that's simply a fantastic collage dear Elizabeth!
I would love to join spring in Paris as well - and I would even more love spring arriving now here at my corner of the planet! Just 3 degrees over zero today and no sun but the dogs and I decided to go on a long walk nevertheless as we three are alone at home the whole day.
Happy Saturday my friend! WOW - you made an extraordinary beautiful collage for our Spring theme - thanks a lot my friend.

This is a wonderful collage, because you used some recycled things like wrapping paper, washi tapes and cardstock - all received from friends! Fabulous stamp of the Eiffel Tower!
Wish you a happy day! Rike

That Eiffel Tower image looks so nice on that paper. I love your page. You do know how to layer paper. Paris would nice to visit right now. If only I was independently wealthy so I could skip off at a moment's or so notice. Hee-hee. Of course once again you have my humming that Sinatra oldie-the one about Paris in the springtime. :) Happy Saturday my friend. Hugs-Erika

I like the muted colors of your collage. Like early morning mist. And now I'll be humming the little tune and wishing Springtime would arrive here toute suite.

Beautiful, Elizabeth! I love the muted colors and all the layers.

Jeanie said...

I adore this page, Elizabeth. It speaks to the Paris I know -- loads of texture, beauty, old world elegance. This is a terrific combination of image, paper and words. Very nice indeed!

A very pretty page dear E! Hope you're feeling a bit better, and that the computer problems are cleared up!

A beautiful page Elizabeth! I loved going to Paris and I did go in the Springtime (at Easter) in 2015. I hope to visit it again some day and maybe spend a bit more than a weekend there. Ok, back to your page! I love the colours you’ve used and the layering. I also think it’s terrific that you’ve used the paper and tape your gifts were wrapped in (and what beautiful wrapping!). Your composition is really well done here and it all adds up to a beautiful page.

Oh Elizabeth! Your know I love Paris in the Springtime (any time really!!) and your page is the most perfect page! The pink reminds me of the blossom on the trees and the whole page is sheer Parisienne elegance!
We had to order a new car today - we can't risk anything else going wrong with our old one! Aaaagh!!! Hugs, Chrisx
