A lot of it has been deleted..and a lot more added!
I have used my new Tulip stamps from Carabelle Studios - I was so looking forward to using these stamps and I used a background already in my journal!
All I did was ink them and stamp them so that fitted the page! I doodled in the spaces!
Everything was coloured in using my Derwent Coloursoft pencils.The words were picked out randomly from a page from my King Arthur book.
I am joining in at Art Journal Journey with Jo's Flora and Fauna theme.
On our second full day in Paris we caught a metro to the Grand Magasins area in Paris. We have often enjoyed eating at Printemps one of the big stores, but to our dismay everything has changed and there is now a very confusing mix of little outlets and groceries - some with big queues - and not much that appealed to us!
As we were in the area to visit Opera Garnier we headed in that direction and found somewhere to our liking with a great choice of salads - perfect for the unusually hot weather!
Of course it is here I am joining Bluebeard and Elizabeth for T Stands For Tuesday!
I know Elizabeth will like these bottles!This time it really is Coke Elizabeth ( I made a mistake the other week when I had a Pepsi and called it Coke! Sorry E, and any other Coke drinkers!)Hubby saying that he's not waiting! I had a goats cheese and sundried tomato salad - hubby had a traditional Niçoise.
Opera Garnier looks spectacular from the outside so we had high hopes about taking a tour - we opted for a self guided one as all the English language tours were fully booked and we didn't trust our French that much!
We didn't get a photo of outside so here is an internet one
The Opera was built by Charles Garnier under Napoleon III's orders.
Opulent doesn't begin to describe it! I don't think I will need many words here!
Napoleon chose the spot for the opera to be in a line with the Louvre which you can see in the distance here.
The balcony was quite busy but once again very decorative!
We spotted the cafe below....
...so headed down the grand staircase and found ourselves a seat!More of those bottles......Hubby stuck to Coke and I had an Indian Tonic water, they came with complimentary olives - very nice!!
We are away at the moment so will get to you when I have a connection!
Thanks for looking, Chris
