Today, I'm sharing a page which is a special project designed by Debbi Tehrani at CSI in collaboration with Archiscraps. It inspired me to scrap a photo from our visit to France.
If you'd like to join in, you have the whole month of March to do so.
The DT have created a wide range of pages to wet your appetite.
Why not hop over and have a look?
I used an Authentic paper "foundations" as the background
The bright yellow underneath is Crate Paper, Happy Day
The stripey pieces are very old Basic Grey, Aged and confused, "Phinicky"
I use a Memory Box to die to create the tree
The Crafter's workshop and gesso to create a stained glass window effect
Architectural element is something I've had for ages. E.K Success
Another architectural element. Tim Holtz, Pediment
Stipes (patterned paper)
Architectural accents (Pediment, Eiffel tower, gold accent)
Document something about architecture - Journalling is on the back and it reads:-
It was a happy accident when we stumbled across this exquisite Chapel, tucked away in the heart of the Palais de la Cité on the Ile de la Cité in Paris.
The Sainte Chapelle, is a masterpiece of Flamboyant Gothic architecture built by King Louis IX, (later Saint Louis.) Unlike a lot of dark and gloomy Gothic buildings, its unique stained glass windows and brightly painted ceiling, render the air iridescent with light and colour.
We marveled at the intricate details and the craftsmanship from the 13th century. How could such splendid results be achieved without computer drawings, modern tools and machinery? After a busy day sight seeing, this unexpected find was a welcome respite from the heat and noise of the city. 22 June 2004
