Will you be nicer to me Paris?


French-inspired-mixed-media-canvas

Please tell me I'm not the only one who enjoys French-inspired "everything" but not the city of Paris? *winks* Oh yes, I had a terrible experience in Paris. From the not-so-friendly Parisians to the long queue at the Eiffel Tower to the public holiday closure of Champs-√Člys√©es to the discovery that the tour itinerary did not include a visit to The Lourve to the 14 times I rode on the teacup at Disneyland because my sister was too scared to try the roller coaster. *LOL*



Seriously though, I need to give Paris another visit....seeing how much I now appreciate French food and wine. Maybe Paris will be nicer to me the second time around. Also, my sister now loves roller coaster rides! :)



I started the canvas with the sole intention of using this lovely fabric bloom from my bloggy pal Mitra Pratt and to incorporate cardboard for LESSology Challenge #43: Cardboard Central.


But as you can see, I added a lot more ephemera as usual! :)

Pretty! I'll be curious to hear how a second Paris visit goes for you. I've never been. All my travel has been in the western hemisphere.

Lol! Isn't it weird how life dishes up unexpected things? At least your project is perfect even if Paris isn't!

This is absolutely, STUNNING!!! Love it! Sorry to hear Paris wasn't very good to you the first time 'round. Perhaps, the second time 'round will be much more enjoyable for you! You'll have to let us know! ;)
