A Vintage Journey -- A little bit French. & The Kraft Journal -- Paris or France

The theme this week on A Vintage Journey is A little bit French, and The Kraft Journal - Paris or France
I started off with some packaging, and ripped off some of the top layer to show the ridges. I painted it with gesso, and then with Fresco Vintage lace and Sky. I then heat embossed some parts with gold embossing powder.
I stamped one of Tim's Paris stamps, and used my En Francais writing background stamp. The paper with Paris on at the top is one of Tim's. The next step was to add the photo of the Eiffel tower and the lady who is in Paris for the Spring. Some flowers, a flourish, a spray of pearls and a dragon fly completed the picture.
This is going to be the cover of a book a friend and I are going to do at some time.

Oo la la! Very French and I love the swirl, postmark, fleur de lis and dragonfly embellishments.

Gorgeous piece & made all the more special because it contains a bit of recycling!
Always goes down well with me if you can sneak something in that was once something else!
