a beautiful world 38

Hi there! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's challenge theme is all about "The good 'ol days". It's fun to walk down memory lane and whether you'd like to create a classic vintage project, try a technique you used to use, or perhaps walk down memory lane, we want to see how you're inspired by the good 'ol days.
I was inspired to create a vintage themed layout featuring a photo of the gorgeous Eiffel Tower:
I love most anything vintage especially beautiful iconic vintage landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower. A piece of beautiful paper from the French Industrial collection triggered my creativity to scrap a photo of the beautiful structure that my husband snapped while we were vacationing in France:
After creating the collage background using awesome papers from the French Industrial collection, I used various Distress Inks along with the Harlequin stencil to add a touch more color and design:
I embellished the layout with various metal findings which I colorized using Gesso, Vintage Photo and Faded Jeans Distress Stains:
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my project and I hope I have inspired you to give it a try and join along with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge! Be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge blog to see what the DT has created:
Be Sweet ;)

I've been following you for quite a while and it's wonderful to see how you turned to mixed media. And being able to mix and match this with your signature of elegance and sometimes a bit of shabby chic. The romantic Eiffel Tower in this LO is a perfect example of your style and amazing talent.
Love it!
