I don't have the words dies…..or some of the other products Tim uses in his tutorial here ….but I do have some of the the ephemera we picked up on our travels around France in June…including a 1950's catalogue from one of the Grand Magasins in Paris - Printemps. My SIL and hubby took us to some Vide Greniers ( table sales) and Brocantes and a very kind person at one of the stalls gave me it as an extra so my beautiful lady was scanned and reduced in size a little!!She looks as though she is holding her mug of chocolat but (a little secret) it's just the way I cut the surrounding paper!
I must say I really enjoyed using the gesso, ink pad and multi medium - I love the effect it gives and I'll be using this technique more in the future!
I wanted to give the tag a more feminine touch so instead of the colours Tim used I chose to use pink on the leaves, cog and around the edges of the tag.
There is part of a métro ticket and card from a lovely crêperie we ate at, as well as part of a Paris guide. The bird stamping also reminds me of France - the sky was often full of swifts.
I am pleased with my tag as it is full of my memories of our visit! I hope you like it too!
Oh! and just save you looking up the quote on the little French stamp - 'Enjoy every moment'….I try to!!!
Thanks for looking, Chris
