Paris - a magical place….

I am joining in at Art Journal Journey again - Hazel of Hazel's Creative Moments has the fabulous theme of 'Magical Mystery Tour'
The place for me is Paris……..still, after so many visits my magical place - something new every time we visit!
I used Oxides to begin with then lots of random stamping, stencilling and doodling. The Arc de Triomphe came from a very old sticker set. The words are from Paper Artsy sets.

These are quite big things though - La Grande Arche and Miro's giant statues and we have been here before - it is one of my favourite places in Paris - the reflections from the modern buildings fascinate me!  

Lots of little treasures in Paris too though! We enjoyed exploring some new places!


 The view from our hotel window provided some interesting reflections!
 There will be more street art to come!
These rabbits on leads at Parc de Belleville!
Beautiful buildings 

This was close to our hotel - we couldn't get in last year
When we changed Metro lines at Gare de Lyon - a tropical garden behind the platform

Thanks for looking, Chris

Hi Chris
Paris is wonderful. I have only been once and I was staying in La Defence.
I also loved the buildings and stunning reflections and sculptures found there.
