Downtown Antique Paris

My dear friends & readers, here we are back on track sharing new projects & new images in our blogs Boulevard de L'antique:  Crafts & Decor and Retro Scrap Freebies.  We have been working on new ideas that we will be posting very soon.  

If you follow our blog you will know that we like to create “decoupage scenes” in many of my vintage boxes, scenes that might tell a story or picture a landscape.  This time my mind flew to the streets of Paris back in the 1800’s, and this is what I imagined "Beautiful ladies walking on Saturday evening on a street by a hill from which you can see in the distance the Eiffel Tower and even a zeppelin across the sky"

For this project I wanted to combine the techniques of Decoupage and Image Transfer, so the background buildings, the Eiffel Tower and zeppelin are done by transferring the images and the ladies with decoupage.

I kept the inside of the box very simple, just stamped some vintage graphics related to Paris in black ink.
