Onto my project - a long time ago I went to Italy. (Be warned this post is pic heavy!!)
I visited Rome, Pisa and Venice.
I adored Italy - the culture, the art, the food(LOL), the wine (LOL) and well - just about everything!
I have promised myself that I will return again and it's on my ever increasing list of 'things to do before I become too old and decrepit to enjoy them'!!
So it was an obvious choice for me to choose this as my destination.
Instead of a card, this week I have altered a slide mailer.
The mailer was inked with Dusty Concord DI before adding the papers (which are from Crafty individuals).
The pic with the Colosseum in the background - from a time when 'visiting Europe' was only something done by rich and privileged families seemed perfect to use.
On the front I added a small fabric leafy flourish (cut off something or other!) and a metal camera charm. I popped a die cut in the top corner after colouring randomly with the same DI.
Inside another image, a bit of stamping, some ribbon, and lace and a fabric flower died with DI.
Under the slides are two more Italy images - of course no visit to Italy is complete without a trip on a venetian gondola or a visit to marvel at St Peter's Basilica.
I used some tiny beads at the top of each one.
Same papers were used on the back.
I hope my project has inspired you to come and join us this time - we love seeing all your creations!
