The Paris Project


This is a project that has kept me quiet for a few days.


I altered a blank mdf album into a keepsake of my many visits to Paris, France.


I covered the blank pages with paper & elements
from Brenda Walton's Maison collection by K & Company.

The pages are approx. 8½ inches tall & 3 inches wide (ignoring the tabs).


I looked through my photographs to choose my favourites
& scanned the selected ones onto my computer.

I then altered most of the coloured photographs to monochrome
& selected a brown tone.

I cropped them to fit into an image of a slide mount
(using an image of a brown weathered mount by Tim Holtz).


Once all the images were completed, I printed them out on A4 photographic paper,
cut each image out & sanded the edges.

Text was typed up on the computer, printed out
& secured under blank slide mounts.


I added a few of Tim's doo-dad words & tied the pages together
using some lovely red & cream polka dot grosgrain ribbon.



















My thanks to
Brenda - love those papers
Linda - for the mdf album
Fifi - for the ribbon
Tim - slide mount, words & inspiration from the design of his new book,
A Compendium of Curiosities
