Another Journal page

We are having a short break - I have to be back on Friday as Two of my friends and I are going to Art From The Heart on Saturday for a workshop.

Hopefully we will have been getting out and about a bit!  

I haven't had time yet to join in at Art Journal Journey, which is a shame because I love Erika's theme of Journeys(of course I would, wouldn't I?)

I also love using Quotes on my pages, which is the theme at Moo Mania and More.

I hope you like my page.
I used my Kraft journal again. I painted the page with DecoArt crafters acrylic in Flesh colour. Some Gold stencilling and drips, followed by Potting Soil Archival, which was also used for some random stamping and on the old French text page.The rest of my page is some collaged bits and pieces from my scraps.
The Quote is a computer generated one from Audrey Hepburn, and one I SO agree with!!

Thanks for looking, Chris

You should know that Paris is number 1 on my bucket list. I want to go there SO badly. Then London is #2. Your page is very special and meaningful to me. It speaks in words I can't even pronounce (FRENCH).

This is gorgeous Chris. I'm glad you finally made it over to AJJ. I think this is a wonderful piece so inspired by your trip. Ahhh, makes me want to take a trip right now. Thanks for joining and have a great weekend at your class. Sounds like fun.
