This lo was a winner on The pink elephant chipboard and paints challenge- thanks!!
I did this lo for my Kraft challenge on Gingersnap creations DT- but is was a statement: we can use our very old neglected stash and to get the most of it.
We can do great lo (as I really like this one) without using the whole lines of new papers and embellishments- we just need to think!!
So I decided to do this lo as I was organizing my very old chipboards - and these Provo craft ones were screaming to me " use us". All the rest was easy:
the plain craft paper got some " dressing up" with home made glimmer mists and huge chipboard circle as a home made mask I keep just for this kind of misting.
Then I stamped lots of white images and heat embossed them, added some brown inked Tim Holtz french stamps on the top, inked and distressed the paper.Here we are- one craft paper, no designers at all.
Then I found this old Orient express ad on the web together with this french lady I got once as a RAK (just added some cut out of this image)- this one was laminated so it shines a bit.
The MME journaling tags were the Rak I just got a few days ago and they are.. French!! and from 2007. I did some random journaling - like the name of the city in English/ French, Russian and Hebrew, connected the city sights with this recycled string, added some music twill ribbon for my love for French chansons (hope this is the way I should write it- not sure, my French is not very great - 3 years in high school and .... nothing at all I remember..), fleur de lis brads,Mona Lisa stamp in home die cut frame and some vintage button were the last touch..
And the title? Ok, one of the greatest movies ever.. Give it a guess..
The biggest problem with this title is that you can never did it with one pack of letters- so here we have 5!! packs- all used and some very old too.
And as I was thinking about other web challenges doing this- here they are
