When it sizzles!

Those of you that know me also know that I love Paris…at any time of the year!
My page is about Paris in the Summer - I borrowed the words of the famous Cole Porter song - I love Paris!
My page started off like this..
Some paint, scraps of mop up paper, gauze, my date stamp and transparent paste through a stencil.
I added some torn paper (Indigoblu I think), computer generated words and a TH young lady who was part of a couple…he had an urgent call to take, but her confident look tells me he won't be long before he is back beside her and they will enjoy walking in the Paris parks together!

The photos were taken in Paris in June 2015 - you may have already seen them!
We visited Troyes, Orleans, Tours and Poitiers then and finished with a few days in Paris!
Later this year we are travelling again in France, we have already booked our train tickets and hotels and made arrangements with my SIL and BIL who have once again kindly invited us to stay with them!

My page is to link to Elizabeth's great 'Summertime Love' theme at Art Journal Journey.

Thanks for looking, Chris

Wow, oh wow, Chris. I love this. I also considered the Cole Porter song when I was thinking of the summertime theme, but dismissed it when I didn't feel I could do Paris justice. I was surprised to see your TH paper doll without her mate. But I really like how you used her. I'm sure you'll find a use for him, too.

I'm really in AWE of this page and of course, I am in awe of all the photos of France. I can't wait till you go back and I can live vicariously through your words and photos.

Thanks for sharing this gem on Art Journal Journey today.
